Windows 7: Good Water Cooling Case??

Good Water Cooling Case??

So I was wondering what cases people suggest for water cooling cases? Budget max for the case is $150-250. A must have is internal USB3 connector.

Also I realize that mid tower may or may not be an option, so probably full size?

One other thing is radiator configuration, I want something clean, 1 loop preferred.
As for the CPU either intel 3770K

As for the GPUs I have a few options:
1 GTX 680
or
1 GTX 670
or
1 HD 7970

The plan is later on to get a second GPU, but for now 1 should be enough.

I have also been looking for a pump, specifically:
Swiftech MCP655-B 12v Water Pump w/ 3/8" Conversion Kit (317 GPH) - FrozenCPU.com
Which seems reliable.

So how big of a radiator will I need?
2X 240s?

I was actually looking at that case earlier, but the major let down is that is doesn't have front panel USB3...

Are you only interested in traditional water cooling solutions? If you are open to other ideas, closed loop systems are absolutely awesome! Now they have them for GPU's as well. Accelero Hybrid VGA Cooling ARCTIC check that out

That would allow you to use almost any decent quality Mid to Super Mid tower case.

Also about the closed loop solutions, i personally want the traditional setup as I am not tied down with what hardware I choose to use. An good example is when upgrading gpus.
