If you're looking for a case to fit those in, check out CaseLabs. That's probably your best option. The m10 or STH10 would work quite well for your purposes. Yeah, pricey, but they are well worth every single penny, I assure you.

I run mostly DangerDen cases for custom builds and if it were for me it would be a totally different situation. This guy has kids and animals and I am not about to get him a 500+ dollar chew toy or baby basher. The switch would be nice but I need Push Pull not just push. I have 63 +/- .1 MM and cannot fit it in the top.

Bump. I am really looking to finish this computer soon. I am heading to Afghanistan and need this thing 100%. What about the Corsair Obsidian? What is the distance from Motherboard to the top of the case where the fans mount?

The best watercooling cases I've ever seen are from these people: http://www.caselabs.net/

They have their own vendors thread here at OCN and will do anything possible to help you.

My next case is definitely going to be bought directly from them.

Quite expensive, but utter perfection always is.

The best pictures of their cases are on FTW PC's site: http://ftwpc.com/ Another vendor here at OCN.

 

(Edit: I just noticed the above post. The cases from CaseLabs are sold as disassembled in flat packing cases. Perfect to take along for oversea's deployment! I know for a fact that Corsair cases are packed in humongous shipping cartons. Not the least bit travel friendly.)

Unless they produce a case that is Sub ~300 dollars I cannot justify having a case that costs more than the total parts in it. Aside from the water cooling. I have a radiator with a total thickness of 63mm and fans that are 25mm. So I need to find out if the obsidian can support 88mm of distance from the motherboard to the top of the case.

Would really help if you gave us your parts list, cooling recommendations will differ if you are running SLI/Xfire, vs single GPU.. What CPU you are planning on using and will you be overclocking?

Which Corsair Obsidian? Think have a few, also if I recall, Corsair list their specs and dimensions.. Again, we don't know what board you are using so don't have a clue.. some board has a huge heat sink on top which will bump into the radiator, some don't.. The now X79 does not make things simpler with the mosfet even closer to the edge which usually resides in the area of the top of the case.

If you are only planning on just 1x 360 radiators, most "WC cases" has room for 360 with space to spare for those large or thick radiators (I am guessing that a Haf X or Obsidian 800D will fit 99% of the 360 in the market right now, the other 1% can sure be done with some simple modding).. If you are planning on using all 3, you are going to have to suck it up and buy a big case, either CL or MM, This is just my $0.02 but I think MM use to be king of the hill until CL came along and stomped them back into the stone ages, it's a "dogs eat dog" market, if you are not improving, someone will come along and steal your lunch.. both cost more then $300 if I remember right and you mentioned the parts aren't really that expensive so maybe it's not a option for you..

Another option is if you doing mind external radiator, Rad Box works great and is excellent for heat disperse, buy a few disconnects to use from the rig to the external rad box..

Since you mentioned you don't want to spend money on a case that will cost more then all the parts, why even bother using a 360 Airplex, that's just so wrong... biggrin.gif That baby deserves some 7970 or 570 at least to strut it's stuff... You know you want to..
