One to consider that doesn't get as much press, but is actually amazing for water cooling builds is the Xigmatek Elysium ( ). It's about $160 on Newegg and it's a monster. Huge. Plenty of room for watercooling and what ever the hell else you might want. I've seen three incredible builds in this case and I'm ordering my own very soon.

The NZXT Phantom is probably one of the best looking cases out there as well. It's gorgeous and works well for most watercooling setups too :D 

However, it just can't match the Elysium is the size/price ratio. My sister can fit inside an Elysium. It's mammoth and you won't ever run out of space. But, it's not nearly as good looking as the Phantom and it's $50 more. 6 of one, half dozen of the other.
