Best mATX case for Over clocking (Main Question at the bottom)

I'm building a smallish Gaming pc, and I was wondering if mATX can handle the liquid cooling for over-clocked Cpu (maybe gpu not liquid cooled).

I will be Over clocking an i5 4690K cpu up to about 4.5 (or so).

I want to fit a 240mm radiator (corsair H100i) in it somewhere. Smaller is better, as long as there is room for crossfire.

Note: Dust filters are welcomed, but not a necessity.

Anyway, is mATX case too small (not enough airflow/other problems) to over-clock on? Can you guys recommend any good mATX cases? Also it is somewhat important to be good looking.

Thanks in advance!!

the corsair 350d and fractal design arc mini r2 are both great options for liquid cooling/overclocking

I have an overclocked/watercooled ITX build. mATX is most certainly not too small.

fractal Node 804 can fit a 240mm in the front chamber and a 280mm in the back chamber. It also can fit a 240mm on either side in the front, as well as another 120mm in the rear of the front chamber and either a 120mm or 140mm in the rear of the back chamber. It is also smaller in footprint than most other mATX cases. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352047

If you want a more conventional tower, the corsair 350d is a good choice.
