Best case for GPU Cooling ?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I want a new case, get rid of this ugly thing.

I want either 2 tone with black in it, or black. I "need" a side panel on it, or don't want it, too. Also, I want it to have a 80mm minimum, 120mm highly perfered, right where the GPU would be. I think it not only looks better with the fan farther down on the case, but, but since my GPU is 55C idle, it wouldn't hurt in the temp department either.

Only case I really see with a 120mm fan on the side is that Lian Li "SLI" edition case. Budget is $100.

No TT Armor!

the backwards cases are usually very good. they put the gpu in their propper orientation for cooling. heatsinks work much better if they are on top of the gpu. Heat rises duh

This isn't really a fan mount, but you could put one there.

I REALLY like this case; wish I had it. It's got everything I'd want...120mm fans, looks nice...

try a coolermaster ammo

those side pannel things are the perfect fit for 80mm fans

you can hold 8 fans on the side pannel if you want

its also got 120s for intake and exhaust

Besides the Ultra Aluminus (which I was going to get, but I found out its $150 at Tiger Direct after shipping and tax ) , none of those have side windows.

yo Pook check these monsters out:
Beast1
Beast2
Both are equipped with 250MM fans, and they're both perfectly placed over the PCI-Ex16, PCI, PCI-Ex1 slots.
