Cases that can hold dual 480 rads? - Page 2

post #11 of 24

About the bottom part, really? I mean, does a 480 rad really fit in a 800D on the bottom? I thought only a 360 fit in the bottom of an 800D.

If you want info from it, send him a PM.

@Rognin Freakin' badass.

Thanks for that, that was one of the things that I was looking to see if it were possible.

Too bad it requires a hard mod but that's prob one of the easier hard mods to do.

OP I was looking for the same thing but nothing was really what I wanted so am going to attempt a scratch build with acrylic, if nothing else its fun designing/building it. I actually enjoy that part the most tongue.gif
PS all the cases I looked at have been mentioned, not sure if there are anymore unless you get one built by a mob like protocase
http://www.protocase.com/

Good luck with your project

PS I did look at the NXZT Switch as it seemed very "moddable" but the scratch build had taken over by then, and there is the Murderbox II due for release soon, though a tad expensive.

again good luck

@Krahe
Protocase looks pretty awesome, and I agree. Choice is really tough, considering I don't find them 100% attractive like I'd want them to tongue.gif

Murderbox was looking really good, until I saw you can't put dual 480mm (again, without hardmodding).

I'll keep looking though, keep them cases comin' anyone knows any more smile.gif

@DeviousAddict Really? Both of those can hold dual quad rads without any hard mods?

@ ht3k Apologies, I just reread the review and it fits a 420 rad not a 480 sorry.
Review for the case explaing it all:- http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1844/4/ (about half way down it mentions the top bay is removed to fit a 420 rad with push/pull)

Same as the Rosewill Blackhawk ultra, I think it just blacks the top bay if you use a 420 rad:- http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1861/5/ (say's it at the bottom)
Sorry dude.
however i do think the Rosewill is big enough to fit them but might need a little modding. It is a massive case as you will see by the pics in the review i linked.

@Hellish Spot on, man! Very much relevant to my interests biggrin.gif

Btw is that a single fan shroud holding the RX480 to the back of the case? :O

And although I requested cases that don't require 'hard mods', I don't think I mind hard mods on that particular case.

Still, everyone post more if you know of more! biggrin.gif

@DeviousAddict No need for apologies, haven't purchased anything yet wink.gif Anyway, close! But no cigar man tongue.gif For now I'm looking for cases that require no hard mods. Still, thanks a lot for your research, I'm sure it'll help others looking for the same or similar. Maybe I'll get into hard mods in time and with more experience as well.

Keep those dual 480 rad cases comin' guys!

You could fit 2 480mm rads at the bottom of a TJ07 or TJ11, but you would need to relocate the PSU to the front bays, which may or may not require modding depending on how you want things to look.
