Case for Air+watercooling

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey!

I need help with choosing a case for both air & watercooling!
It need to have good looks (I dont consider HAF cases as good looking), alot of space, good airflow ( 2x DirectCU cards) and space for atleast 360 radiator on the top or anywhere else.

Which would you guys recommend?

Thank you

I would have said Xigmatek Elysium - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811815013

However its aesthetics are certainly an acquired taste!

In terms of its capabilities is a great case, you could bang a RX360 in the top and a RX480 in the front if you really wanted.

This is quite a decent case, and you could also fit the 360 Rad on top.

Not really build for watercooling, it can fit a Skinny 360 in the roof with modding, or a 120.4 (Square) rad in the front with extreme modding.

If I were you I would go with the 800D. I have been in love with this case for a long time and I really wish I had gotten one. They have AMAZING cable management and have been called ideal cases for water cooling. There are dust filters on the bottom and front, which also includes hot swap drive bays. It has a fully black exterior and interior. It can fit a 360 rad on top and has grommets for water cooling. Best of all, it comes with that corsair gold standard. smile.gif

All in all this is my favourite case in the world at this moment. I have seen some crazy paint jobs on it as well if you are into the sort of thing.

If you have still not decided the Silverstone TJ11 has potential for 2 140 mm rads (1 quad and 1 tripple) give you massive potential for air cooling and water cooling. thumb.gif
