Xfire Case Solution

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello there, I'm currently building a rig that will be set up with two 6870's in Xfire and I am looking at also getting after market air coolers for each of them. I am currently look at the Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme Plus II air coolers and I am aware that they are quite large, therefore, I am looking for either a case that would be able to fit a Xfire configuration with such large coolers or some other alternative. I'd also prefer to keep the price under $200, but the cheaper the better!

Thanks!

Based on experience the Corsair 800D has more than enough space to fit the cooler but it's a bit over your $200 budget unless you're able to find it on sale.

Otherwise I believe the HAF 932 should also be good enough to fit the coolers as these cases are meant to support long video cards such as the 6990 anyway. The HAF 932 ranges fro $130 - $170 depending on where you buy from.

Note these are full towers, not sure if you're looking for a mid tower or other form factor.

Yes, I've been looking at the HAF series a bit and the only concern I have about space is not in the length however, it is that the lower card's fan will be obstructed by the PSU itself.
