LF Case - Full window & Supports 360rad p/p

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Title says it all really.

Looking for an upgrade from my NZXT Phantom that has a full window to show off a sick water loop and can support a 360rad in push pull.

I already looked into case labs and even though the cases are great for $400-$500 I only saw one.build.log that really justified the price tag.. Most of the.built.logs didn't do a $400 case.justice.

Anyone wanna spit out ideas?

Is there.an upgrade to my.case or is it all linear movement from here?

Shinobi XL, you can fit two 360mm rads in it. Top needs a thin rad to work in push/pull.



Though, I must ask, what is everyone's obsession with push/pull? It only really helps with super thick rads or if you want to spin two sets super low on a thin, high FPI rad. In almost all situations it has a negligible effect on performance.

Thats a pretty nice case. Where do you pick up one of those? What about the side panel? Hows that looking?

Newegg, NCIX US, etc.

Side panel is really nice, it's recessed.

I was looking at the review for the case.. And it got some bad ratings for the front panel being solid and killing air flow for the video card..

Lol.. Thats not on my waterloop.. I appreciate the recommendation. I will continue to do soul searching for the next case for me.. I am being so picky..

You can put 2 additional fans in the floor, and three 120mm fans in the front. Maybe I'm a bit out of touch, but I could seriously not care less what fans come with a case. It's all about mounting options.

It's not the front panel that killed airflow, it's that its a silent Spectre fan, which have pretty weak ratings to begin with. Though, I admit, I did clip all of the plastic tabs off of the front panel to give it a bit more room to breathe. The upshot of it is that the fan is operating behind a solid panel, which heavily reduces the noise coming out the front of the case.
