Looking for more space

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for more space and more organized case then what i have now, currently i have the CyborgX case pictured below and it's a good case, but i don't see there being enough room with all the extra cables i have inside of the rig, i'm looking for something that i can manage wires and liquid cooling better, any suggestions?






your input is much appreciated and i would love for some comments on what i could do, if you need pictures of my rig now or anything feel free to ask, if you need any information feel free to ask. thank you

here are some photo's of my current rig, to give you an idea of what i'm talking about when i say wire management, it looks like if i added any hardware and ran the wires for it it'd be cluttered, any suggestions?

HAF X is massive, has good airflow, and has great cable management. I vote HAF X.

I personally really like the 800D out of all of them. It's very professional looking and still has a window. Problem is from what i remember they are more of a liquid cooling case. You might want to look more into that though.

i'm looking for a good liquid cooling case, i plan to go mostly liquid cooling in the near future to keep temps down for gaming purposes and the increase in graphics card size and number, plan to get a bigger graphics card then my current one, and i plan to crossfire the GPU, looking to liquid cool both cards i plan to get but i don't know how to go about doing so.
