Which Big-Tower case for casemodding

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there guys,

So I'm new to the casemodding and I'm wondering what will be a good case to start with. I realy looking for a Big-Tower case.
My plan:
1) Create an own unique side(left) panel with a window and fans
2) Create an own unique side(right) panel with air in/out takes
3) Planning on fully watercool the system with green, silver and white tubing
4) I will be using green and white lights inside the case

I'm doing it for the following rig:

Intel core i7 3820 ( will arrives around 04-11)
Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard ( will arrives around 04-11)
3 x GTX 670 4Gb version. ( will arrives around 04-11) (still looking for good waterblocks, maybe you guys know some good ones)
Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1300W (just arrivied)

Hope you guys could give me some tips on the watercooling(firs time doing it), like which reservoir, pump and radiators I should use. thanks guys.thumb.gif

Off the top of my head if you'd like to modify one either the NZXT Switch 810 or Silverstone TJ07. Both are big full towers with lots of interior room but do need modification to bring out their full potential. For a case that can house all your cooling components check out any of the Case Labs line or Little Devil cases. Both of those were built to house water cooling loops.

Caselabs Magnum SMH10, or STH10 if you want to go all out. There's also the Silverstone TJ07.
