Tuniq fit in a Gigabyte Poseidon Case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Here is the case I am considering for my 2nd PC:

Gigabyte Poseidon

Do you think the Tuniq tower will fit? The case measure 7.9" wide and seems most say u need an 8" wide case. Just wondering if that .1" is within the tolerance.

As a side note, option #2 for a case is

Thermaltake Shark

It definitely is big enough, but I'm just not sure if I want to spend that extra cash or desk real estate for a bigger case.

Thanks in advance - Kevin

I can definitely say the Shark is a beast of a case. There's lots of room in there. As far as the first one you mentioned, i'll be fine. The Tuniq website says it needs 19cm (~ 7.5") so you'll have room to spare.

Tran, how do you like your shark? I can't tell but are the bottom drive rails removable? Be kinda nice to mount a double rad down there if I decide to go that path.

I love it.

Nah they're not removable unfortunately. I was debating on cutting the bottom half out so I could fit my res. & tubing in there. Haven't done it yet though.
