I'm buying a new computer, including a new case. I plan on overclocking, but I have a few questions.

1)Will an ATX case support almost any mobo/proc combo?

2)I've heard some people mention Antec cases (Going by memory think thats who makes em) The one I'm thinking of has 4 80mm fan slots built in, will this be suffiiceint? Also can anyone else list some other cases that have easy access?

3)I've done a bit of reading on water cooling, Does it help that much? or would fans be good enough?

4)I haven't been able to find a lot of information on airflow, (mabey I never looked hard enough) but I was wondering if anyone has some links on fan location and air flow.

Thanks in advance
