Separate compartment case?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there any other computer case that has separate compartments for their internals other than Thermaltake LVL 10 ?

Looking for a case that has some sort of division between CPU and Videocards and if possible HD's, though this ones dont produce as much heat.

Been googling with some kew words but I cant seem to find any wth.gif

and I dont feel like making a custom case headscratch.gif

Anyone that knows of a case with this criteria, please let me know !

The Corsair 800D has 3 compartments (HDD, Motherboard area and PSU area) and that's pretty much the case with the most compartments except for the lvl 10 or the lvl 10 GT.

Cases with 'separate compartments' similar to 800D are some top models from Silverstone (eg TJ11) and Lian Li (eg X1000A).

And, Enermax CS-718 employs a 'wind tunnel' to separate the cards from the rest of the system. See pic below.

Lastly, Cubitek Magic Cube totally separates HDDs and optical drives from the mobo.

Basically, it is hard to separate the CPU area from the graphics cards. Enermax's CS-718 is the closest.

Here are a few reviews of the Enermax CS-718. The problem is that it is a 6-year old case and so it is hard to find. Try ebay or something in that direction.

Actually, I think it is not too difficult to use acrylic to form a similar duct custom-made for an existing case.
