Push/Pull h100 + heigh limitation

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I was really happy of my Antec 900 when I first bought it but, over the past 1 and a half year I learned that this case has little to none cable management.

Whenever I tried to wire the damn thing behind the backdoor, the said backdoor wouldn't close because of the wires thickness.

Since I want to put my computer under a small desk, (It actually is a table imbedded in the corner of a wall with a vent pushing AC'd air underneath) I am kind of limited to a mid-tower, although I could get a full tower but this would require me to purchase longer cables because I would have to move the tower to the only other spot available in my dorm and then I would have to buy USB extensions longer HDMIs.


That behing said, I have a corsair H100 + 4 cougar vortex PWM fans in push-pull that will make many choices of cases impossible.

I seen some people hooking up the rad on top of they're cases and having to put two fans inside the case and 2 outside some screening, I really don't like this idea, so again this will reduce the choices.

My power supply is: ANTEC QUATRO 1000W
318

And my motherboard is: ASUS p6X58d-e ATX 12.0" x 9.6"

I also have a dual slot 11" video card, a CD reader, a 3.5" hotswap bay(same size as a CD reader) and two SSDs (would prefer velcroing them on the backdoor/backplate)



The price is not something I really care about, I just want it to be solid and forever-lasting.

Any input would be appreciated!

this link features alot of cases that will fit the h100 at the top with a P/P setup. I know some cases are mid towers (like the HAF 922 and HAF 912, with some modding i believe)

Should give you a start on where to look.

Is the fractal arc midi a mid tower?

Seems like it is a clean and good buy

The antec lanboy looks very great, though since my last antec purchase left me raging about awful wiring, anyone has this case and could confirm me that it's as good as it looks like?

Alright, ended up speaking with someone that built hundreds of computers for a shop and he told me the antec lanboy was not THAT awesome apart from looking great.

I went forward and bought the ARC midi and two Noctua NF-P14FLX 140MM

Will post pics of the build finished (Hoping that EVGA GTX 690 will fit nicely!)

Sorry, don't have any experience in either of those cases, but hopefully your choice works out.
