looking for the best case possible!! - Page 3

post #21 of 30
mmm you seem to be having the same thoughts that i'm having.
I have the HAF X and gone watercooling on it, thinking of changing it as well.
from what i can tell the 800D seems to be a good case at a cheap (ish) price, yet i keep getting drawn to the TJ11 as well lol (much nicer case, but much higher price)
If you do go water, dont bother with the raza kit, go all out and custom build it, you'd end up replacing half the raza kit soon as you wanted to add more things in to the loop.
hopefully good...

yea i guest that becomes an addiction to try some new thing for a better WC system and put more money loll but im unsure about WC i would love to do it the money isnt the problem and this is water with electric components so i prefer to know more about it

lol I had the same reservations as you to begin with, now want to watercool everything.....
(apologies for bad spelling, typing on french keyboard...)
if you want to know more about watercooling, have a look at the forum for it, watch the vids, and get an idea of how to do it.
when you buy the rasa kit you'll be putting it all together yourself anyway, so theres not much difference if you buy that and do it, or buy better parts and do it yourself.
hopefully good...

just do what i did and ask for advice on what to get, all the things you'd need for a full loop, and that it'll all fit together.
that way you should be ok with the parts you buy.
hopefully good...

About the air always moving, yes it does, but hot air will always try to rise, so flipping the tray aids in natural airflow, and the 2 130cfm fans in the TJ11 really helps catapult the heat out the top.
You can ofcourse get any version of the TJ11 you want, I'm just talking about the basic features


This is some good advice you have here. I'm thinking the same for the 800D, it's godly at WC, but air cooling isn't well heard of. I'm not a big a fan of it's looks either. The Haf X is awesome, but it's older model and the fact that people are switching from that case makes me wonder why even go with it.

I'm also, case hunting, but I have not been successful in finding a good case, that has looks good, has amazing air flow and decent WC for a RX360 RAD(ATX or eATX). In the end you want decent air flow because you want to minimize the condensation(not sure how true this is with WC) inside and potential heat build up.

If you have any suggestions please post em here

My new rig setup is on it's way, but with lots of questions...
