Best bets for cases?

Rads will likely be a 120.3 and possibly an extra 120.1. I'm considering the Antec P180 or P182 due to their quiet nature, but I'm not sure there's enough room on top for the large rad. A nice, quiet E-ATX case with the power supply on the bottom would be great.

I'm open to suggestions.

The Silverstone TJ07 is one of the best case for watercooling. The bottom section of the case has plenty of room for a PS, a 120.3 rad, a 120.2 rad and a pump. But if the TJ07 is too pricey for you I would suggest Lian Li G70, the A70/A71, or the V2000, they are all good roomy cases for WC.

Another good case would be the Rocketfish Full Tower case. I know its a stupid name but its a rebranded Lian Li. It sort of looks like a G70 with a door and with the internals mixed around. If your lucky your can get it at a local best buy for under $100.

Good Call, I can't believe I forgot what the case I setup my water cooling in:

It is a dual loop system with a single reservoir, It was fun as heck to build.

Take a look at the new Cooler Master Cosmos S. The top has a 3x120, and two other locations for the 1x120. I have been a long time Lian-Li fan, but if I was building a new system now, this would be at the top of the list.

The Cosmos S is my next case!

The 180/182 do not have room for a 120.3 and a 120.1 without some serious modding of the front of the case. It's pretty tight with my internal 2x120.1sl and even that took some modding. If you mount the 120.3 off the back it'd be enough. Here's a pic of the loop:
