Looking for a new case for my next build.....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I am just wondering if any of you guys could help me as looking at a few of your Mods etc, I'm pretty sure I'm in the right place,

OK, the rig I am building is going to have a MINIMUM of 2x 360mm radiators, I'm currently using a dual bay reservoir and I will require at least 4 5.5 Inch bays in the case, In terms of motherboard form factors, ideally i am thinking of getting a case with HPTX compatibility as to my knowledge it is the biggest available and backwards compatible, so far i have looked at Little Devils cases (which i really like) although i am US based and so when you factor in shipping they would become very expensive and also Mountain-mods cases.


Just reply with some suggestions if you guys have any ideas please, thanks


Oh almost forgot , I'm currently running a CM ATCS 840, which at first I loved, but am starting to become frustrated with it since making the move to WCooling.

Did you want the 2x 360 rads internally mounted? Sounds like you do from your post, in which you will have to go for a BIIIG case (MM which you've looked at) nothing else will fit 2x 360 unless you're looking to do some modding?

Id rather not do any modding, if at all possible, and yes i did mean to be internally mounted both of them, i was looking at making a custom mountain mods one, but couldn't seem to design one (using their tool) that had each radiator in a good place (as out of the way as possible) , but I'm eager to be proved wrong!

Mountain Mods is located in Oregon and so shipping cost should be acceptable as you are based in the US.

Also located in Oregon is Danger Den. Their Double Wide Tower 21 and 29 cases should also meet your listed requirements. Check them out.

Also check out Case Labs' MH10 and TH10 cases. They are in California.
Case Labs is under Hardware Vendors here in OCN.

Case Labs babey!!! You can't go wrong if you are looking to mod as little as possible and still fit both the radiators and an HPTX internally. (My sig has a build log for MH10 for example and several other TH10 build logs can be found in the Case Labs Owners Club link.
