Is a XSPC Rasa 750 rs240 good? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Thread Starter 
So suggestions so far:
DON'T GET THE ANTEC!!! So instead I should get a haf 922/932 or the corsair 600t
Doesn't matter to much if I get the rs instead if I'm just cooling my cpu but if I want to cool my gpu I probably want the rx.

That raises another question, how do i water cool a gtx 580???

Antec 902 is terrible. Sorry to be so blunt. if your buying one in 2011 your doing it wrong.

Terrible cable management, unable to flip PSU, No back hole for cooler install, loud fans, only 10 inches of GPU room, etc.

It's a "bearable" case if you own one already, but buying it new.. Nope. Get a CM 690 for the same price.

If you want to add the gtx 580 into your loop you'll need a gpu water block, additional tubing, and two 1/2 barbs/paste if the block doesn't supply its own.

well beauty is in the eye of the beholder i guess. I personally think it's lovely It's just a very well though out case. It gives you many options for cable management (though it is a bit tougher w/o a modular psu but the same can be said for any case), fan placement, water cooling, as well as giving you dust filters, a sata dock on top, space for huge graphics cards, and other such things. There are more reasons to love it, but in the end, if you don't like how it looks and don't think it will ever grow on you, it might now be for you.
(just to be sure, you looked at the cm 690 II advanced/basic right? Not the older CM 690?)

yeah i looked at the right one. After having another closer look, its not ugly but its not great either. The 902 looked great, but if the 690 II is better so be it =)

You won't regret getting a cm690II but don't let that be the end-all be-all. I was just putting in a strong word for it. I'd still recommend checking out some of the other cases recommended to you to see if any "call out to you" or something. If none do more than the 690II, then you know what to do...
