Which case do you guys think is better for building a custom liquid cooling loop in? I plan to cool the GPU and CPU.

900d for sure.

900D is most likely the better choice. But other options include the Phantom 620/830, Switch 810, LD PC V8 and Caselabs cases in order of rising price.

I have the switch 810, great case and it is good value too.

I'll prob be upgrading from my corsair 500R to a 900d in a year when i start to do full water cooling.

Well I definitely can't afford a $900 caselabs :p. Is there any major difference between cases like the 900d/switch 810 and the more expensive caselabs cases besides (I assume) build quality?

Does anyone live near 93004? I've got an extra 800D..

I wouldn't spend that money for a case to start with, did that once and honestly wasn't worth it. It's much more dependent on your planned setup. If you're going to have 1 or 2 GPUs in the loop along with a CPU, the Switch 810 is perfect for that, just get a 420mm thin radiator for up top and a thick or normal sized 240mm rad for the bottom mount. I did that to cool a 3570k and 690 and it kept things very cool. But if you're planning to do some beastly tri sli/xfire or quad build you'd benefit from a bigger case for more radiator space.

900D looks pretty solid to me, but looking at the others that Scopey listed I think I'll be getting the LD PC V8 for my next build.

I have a old Cooler Master 830SE still in very good shape its a water cool case also I might sell it cheap.

Hm looks like I'll have to look into the switch 810 some more :). I like some room for future upgrades.
