Need decent priced case that can fit a 360 rad, has side window, and cable management

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So right now I am working with a raidmax smildon. It is just a mess with all of the cables and the watercooling pump, res and all of that. I need to have a case that can fit a 360 rad without any modifications, has a clear side window, and has cable management.

Thanks

Define decent Price. Whats your budget. What other feature do you need?

nothing over 200 for sure but I need one where the whole side is clear/ transparent, not a fan that takes up half of it.

you might want to look for a used corsair 800d

it's the only case that comes to mind that has a large window in the side panel, a good amount of holes for cable management and can take a 360 rad without modding

I know you don't want to mod but if you change your mind, get the Lian-Li PC-A70F. It's a beautiful case and it can easily be modded to add a window and put fan holes in the top (easily fits a 360 and even a 140x3).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112342

If you don't want to mod, I recommend those cases:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129087 You can put a 360 radiator in the front.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129100 Same thing but this one has no filters/fan controllers so it's only recommended if you find the DF-85 ugly.

The front rad will be a DIY mount but I don't need it takes true modding.

They are the only affordable case that fit a 360 radiator and don't have the window you don't like. If you can give that up, the HAF 932, HAF X and Xigmatek Elysium would be much better.

HAF X,
1) 360 on top (you wont get a thick rad in there in push...pull for sure, lots of room up top.)

2) 240 in front if you don't need the bays 5 1/4" bays or 360 up front if you don't need the 5 1/4" bays and HDD cage.

3) 120 out the back

It's a big case, comes with wheels lol

The Silverstone Raven cases looks like it could fit a 360mm rad in the bottom. The 1st Raven is more than $200, though.
