Water cooled overclocked matx i7 build

i want to build a super small water cooled machine. I know how big a pain it's going to be to run lines and fit components together in such a small space, but that's half the fun ;-)
my question to all of you out there is, what micro atx case would you use for an overclocked i7 with one, or hopefully 2 big cards like a 5870 or 5850. it'll take a big rad, or two to do that. so if there's a case with 2 side by side 120mm fans that'd be ideal.
I've made a search and found some cases that could fit a 5870, and have empty case sides large enough to cut a 120x240 hole, but i can't seem to find any with actual grills already there. i'm curious to see if any actually exist with that and holes for tubes to come out.
anyone know of one out there?

    just because i find a case with a side long enough doesn't mean that there'll be clearance for a fan in there, or that it'll take a long graphics card. that's why i'm asking for suggestions where people know of one already.

    This setup works great for me.

    I run my setup with an aftermarket northbridge cooler and 2 excellent Noctua 120mm Case fans.

    Would you mind sharing the rest of your build? Sounds very similar to one I'm thinking about...
