Need a new case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to get a full tower. My current case is kinda cramped and the cable management is pretty bad. I was originally thinking about the haf-x, but looking around i found some other cases that interest me like the rv02-e and the phantom.

What would be a good case for me to get. I only have one card now but plan on getting another later one. Also i might get a watercooling kit like the rasa 750 rs 240 or rs360 later on.

I saw that badatgames18 had some issues installing a wc kit on the rv02. So i might not get that. What about the bitfenix colossus? Or any other suggestions? I don't really want to spend more than $200 if possible.

Also would i even need a triple rad for just a cpu? A single or dual rad would be enough right?

A 120mm cooler with good fans will cool the 920 at 4GHz.

Check out the NZXT Phantom. It's an excellent case for the money with lots of airflow and room for water cooling.

are you going to be watercooling in the future? if you are, would you like it to be internal or external/mixture?

If your ONLY going to do the cpu a 240mm would be great, but for the price it's not worth it unless you include GPU's. My suggestion would be to get a silver arrow or NH-D14 instead

i might be watercooling later on. If i am i'm just gonna get something simple like a h-80 or something like the rs120 or rs240. i don't think i'm gonna watercool my gpu. blocks cost too much and when i upgrade my card i'll have to get another block. i'm not planning on upgrading my cpu anytime soon.

Try the obsidian 650d it has great cable management & allows plenty of room to water cool..They list it as a mid tower but its pushing the limits, its huge. There also have been some great deals on them latley. Plenty of reviews on them you can search & watch via youtube as well http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...mid-tower.html
