The case looks good but I was sad the read that despite its wide appearance it didn't really give you much room for wiring.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Nemo - is there enough room at the top of the case to install a 220 sized radiator and fans? If not what other w/c radiator options might work (sans hanging something outside or detached from the case?)

As far as getting any radiator up there plus fans, I'm gonna say that's a no. If you mounted the fans on the outside, I think it'd work, but it'd be a tight fit.
