I hear you. It would be a cleaner easier loop. The 360 rad is not the problem. I just don't want anything external. I think I will be moving around a lot pretty soon and it just seems like a hassle to move. I am thinking about even getting a matx board, matx case, and a cooler gpu than a 7970. Maybe a system like this for a matter of convenience in moving it. It runs at about 50c overclocked. Or something like cdawall's htpc pic above. Really just something smaller. I find it funny that mxphenom watercools his rig and wants to go to a bigger case. I begin to watercool mine and I feel like going smaller. Then again I might change my mind 100 times. Or this. I like this a lot.
