In search for a new case for WaterCooling build

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So, like the title says. I'm looking for a new case for my first project. I know there are a lot of different cases. But I need a special one. I will make a list of the desired and need functions/functionalities:

The needs list:
- Needs to be a full/big-tower case.
- Needs to have room for at least 2 radiators.
- The motherboard tray needs to be on de left side of the case and not on de right side.
- Needs to have good cable management capabilities

The desired list:
- Would like to have a kind of hot swampable drive bay.
- 6 to 8 driver bays.

I hope you guys could come up with some nice cases. I no the SilverStone JT11B-w is huge and has everything I want but the price is to much. I'm looking for a case between €200-€300.

Cheers.

It's a cool looking case but the problem is the motherboard tray is at the right side and not on de left side which I would like to have.

Thanks for your reply.

I mean when your facing the front of the case the motherboard is mounted on de rightside most of the time, the only case I know is the JT11B that has the motherboard mounted on the leftside if you're facing the front of the case. Only thing is the JT11B or JT11B-W case is rather expensive. Thas why I'm looking for an alternitive.

Yeah i understand what you mean, that's the only case i saw also, but it was on the expensive side. Maybe you need to build your own case? wink.gif

Needs a case where the Motherboard is mounted on the right when you look into the case.

Caselabs are extremely highly customisable, and so yes they can have the mobo tray facing the right.
but as i said, very very expensive. but they have amazing watercooling support; Tom does a pretty good overview of the SM8 in his review http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtSv2Qj0CAQ
