Default i7 Cases

I'm currently building my first computer and to be honest, don't know entirely what I'm doing. I have all the parts needed, and i am getting this as my CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
The issue I'm having is I cant find any cases. I really want to get a liquid cooled case, but none of the ones I've found fit an i7, and if they do, i cant tell. I was hoping someone might know a good liquid cooled case that will fit an i7, and if not, even a good quality normal case would be fantastic. I want it to be a full tower, and price really isn't an issue.

+ this:
Petra's Tech Shop

+1 to Hef! Petra's Tech is THE place to find liquid cooling gear! For the same price you could get the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-187-_-Product and just mount the triple Radiator on top where the 230mm fans are... (remove them of course). The ATCS 840 is my case and I am looking at water cooling it here soon as well... Petra's is your best bet and the Rev. 3 kit is a great set up for water cooling!

Little bit on the pricey side, the 800D looks like it is going to be promising when it comes to water cooling.

Yep, like anything else, if its good itll be expensive.

But buying a very expensive case is well worth it since you won't have to buy one when you build a new computer or upgrade.
