I'd certainly recommend going with a case that can accommodate a radiator or 2. I went with the simplified AIO for my CPU and can't look back now, so, there's a warning.
The PC-7HWX does look like a viable option; if you're not as bothered about noise dampening and don't require the svelte, completely stealthy look as much as I prefer.
I apologize as I wasn't able to look more; work was pretty hectic.
After thought: it is amazing to me that no other case manufacturer really has the same level of sleek, high quality focus as Lian Li though. If there is, I haven't seen it yet. Others have definitely raised the bar, but not quite to what I've come to expect from Lian Li.
Lian-Li lacks features common on most newer cases of competing price. Simpler product means less to go wrong.
From what I've seen on GamersNexus, having a cpu radiator as top (exhaust) is the way to go. Gpus are more sensitive to temperatures than cpus in that gpu boost will give you higher clocks with lower temps, whereas a cpu doesn't mind operating at closer to it's max temp.
