Which case for tripple 480 rads

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys im updating my build (Blood Dragon) since i got a ROG mobo and dominator GT ram. Im gonna be watercooling the mobo, cpu, ram and both GPU's . I need to know if there are any other cases apart from the little devil LD-PC V8 that can fit the 3 X 480 mm rads. i DON'T want some box looking case like the danger den one's. I was considering the silverstone TJ 11 but the stupid thing is reverse ATX which i just hate !!!! so any help as to which case i can use would be helpfull.

I definetly wanna use 3 X 480 mm rads as I'm gonna OC the CRap out off my system.....

Here is my current build

400

That's not really anything like triple 480 rads though is it tongue.gif

If you only want 2x 240 and a 360 then that gives you quite a few more options

What about using an external rad like this http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Phobya-Xtreme-SUPERNOVA-1260-Radiator_25023.html.

Edit

TJ07 480 in the bottom and 360 in the top.

Take a look at XSPC H2 and H2+ cases.

 

In standard configuration, they can take one 4x120 + 1x360 + 1x120.

 

At maximum, they can take one 4x120 at the top + two 3x140 at the bottom + one 120.

 

So, if you can accept 1x480 + 2x420 instead of 3x480, perhaps these are good choices.
