Does Lian Li make any good cases sub $250 that can be easily watercooled with 2 radiators?

post #1 of 9

Hey guys, just as the topic says, do Lian Li make any watercooling friendly cases sub $200? Currently I can grab a PC-P50wb for $190 shipped in AUS which is crazy good, but seems like a pita for watercooling, suggestions?

i7 920 @ 3.8ghz (currently at load its at 60degrees with the rx240, ambient air temp is a tad over 30degrees), and going to get the EK 5x0 block for my gainward gtx570. would really like to keep using the rx240 somehow in the new case.

I have the PC-50WB and the case has good potential for WC. I plan to have a 360 and possibly a 280 or 120 depending on needs for it all inside. GPU CPU and MB WC is the plan, about to order GPU 1st then rest.

Lian-Li A05. All-aluminum chassis. Might be a little smaller than you wanted but it is fairly versatile (room for a full atx board).Takes some modding to get it watercooled, but for $90 it's worth the time investment.

I currently have 2x RS240s in mine, although it's a little cramped. I just ordered an 120 rad to see if it'll give me a little more room to work with without impacting temps too much...

Really, for the price and quality, it's hard to beat.

v354b...it's a microATX case but it can fit a 200mm rad in the front and a 120/140mm rad in the front and that is with minimal modding. You could probably fit even more raddage if you tried. Feast your eyes on this beauty smile.gif
