Clear Acrylic Case?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, As some of you will know, i am MaKaVeLis partner. He has been looking at getting the Kandalf LCS but has decided that the £160 to be spent on a case with built in water cooling could be better spent on a case and seperate WC.

So he has decided that he wants to try a clear acrylic case but desperately wants it to be a full tower like the size of the kandalf or armor. Then, spend whatever money is left over on the WC.

So, could you guys please help me to find a BIG clear acrylic case for him

Thankyou

Franny

Look for this brand of acrylic cases, even though this one is out of stock. They all might be, but you may find them in the right spot.

thankyou aswell, but they are ones i was looking at earlier....they arent big cases.

He needs quite a lot of space and we have a standard size case atm, but it is too small... so it must be a full tower

Rep+ anyway for the effort

I would say get a normal Armor then get custom WC
You can buy rads the fit in the front bays because thats where my dual heatercore is note that i dont think all heatercores fit in the bays.

Yeah but that would cost more....

Armors are about £100 and you wouldn't be able to get a custom WC setup for less than £50...

The reason for doing this is so that it works out cheaper than getting the £160 Kandalf LCS, which comes with built in WC.

I don't thing this is looking to promising... If you know of any cheap full tower cases, could you please link me

What about using a regular mid-tower Acrylic case and just making a radiator box to put under it? You could even make your own acrylic one if you got the right parts.

edit*

I actually had mine water cooled. I took an aluminum L channel piece and cut it so it fit the height of the back of the case. I mounted the radiator back there and fit the rest inside with two water cooled video cards. The space was cramped, but it can be done. If I had to do it again, I'd make a radiator box to put under it and cut a couple holes.
