Need help choosing case (& parts)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Case -- Lan Gear Da Box 100, Sugo SG07, and Lian-Li PC V-354 look nice but open to more choices and whether or not any of these 3 will fit the parts below:

Standard ATX-size PSU preferred; modular also preferred.
i5 2500k
ASUS P8P67-M Pro R3 LGA 1155
Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB -- Bought
1tb caviar black sata III
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
GTX 480 most likely (gonna buy from some OC member later )
Corsair H50 or Hyper 212+
Additional forms of air flow! This rig will be for my girlfriend and I want to make sure it doesn't blow up in her face xD

I'm open to changes in the parts listed; also if mitx is possible: i'd love to see whether its possible. I've never modded so minimal modding would be preferred (unless you wanna help me in case your in Houston ). I've seen builds where parts stuck out of the case: aesthetically pleasing would be preferred.

Thank you in advance!!

I highly recommend a HAF 932 or HAF X. Both are amazing cases but there are plenty of good ones out there. As for your cooler I would go for a Noctua NH-D14 for 80 bucks or a Corsiar H70. Or if you want to get a starter water cooling kit...get a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 for 130 bucks. Comes with everything you need but the distilled water.

UsedPaperclip, you do realize that you are in the "Small Form Factor" area, right? And that Shanayo was asking about micro ATX and mini ITX systems?

Shanayo, the Sugo SG07 is mini ITX. It already comes with a 600W power supply of good quality and will fit the graphics card. It will not fit the Hyper 212+ or the motherboard. I think people have fit an H50 in there.

HAF 932 is a real beauty but I forgot to mention: I am trying for the smallest possible matx that can use these parts or comparable ones. My reason is b/c she is really nomadic due to family problems causing her to take the train cross-country often. One that fits in a backpack or duffelbag would be swell. Thank you so much for your reply

As for Zap, thank you for the correction. If I went with the SG07 route, what would be your thoughts on all the parts listed but use Gigabyte GA-H67N-USB3 Mini-ITX Motherboard B3 for the motherboard and the H50 for the primary cooling? I can't think of any other conflictions assuming everything actually fits.

That sounds as if it will work. I've never seen one in person, but I recall reading how others have fit an H50 in one. See this thread. Note that the H50 and H70 (made by Asetek) are discontinued. Corsair now has the H60, made by CoolIt. If you want the Asetek and can't find remaining stock of H50/H70, look for the Antec Kuhler models. They use the same parts as the H50 and H70, though in different combinations (like H70 pump/block with H50 rad).
