Will it fit?

I'm worried about the two GPU radiators and the H110 radiator. Will the case fit all of this? If it won't, can you suggest a case that will? Also, I'm more function than aesthetics so I don't care about side windows and things like that. Cooling capability and function are my priorities for the case.

for that much high end hardware, I'd get a big case like an Enthoo Primo. You could get the extra money for a bigger case by swapping that PSU for an EVGA 1300w G2 (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g21300xr). It's easily as good as the Antec unit you have on your list right now, but it's a lot cheaper. Also, if you are buying those extra fans for your case, get AF120s, not SP120s. SP120s are for radiators and heatsinks, and AF120s are for airflow.

Great suggestion, I will look into that! As far as the fans, I'm looking to put those on the radiators but I will add a set of AF120's for airflow.

If you are buying an Enthoo Primo, you won't need additional fans for airflow, it comes with plenty. If you want to put those SP120s on the radiators, you will need one more, since the H100i takes up two fan slots.

Wait so are the fans for the radiators or for airflow? I think there may be a miscommunication here. SP120s for radiators, AF120s for airflow. Other than that, it looks good.

Sorry about the miscomm lol yes the SP's are to replace the radiator fans while the AF's are for airflow in the case.
