Help on choosing the right case for me ... MAGNUM MH10 and TH10

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody …

I am very new to this forum and really hope to get some advice and help on choosing my CaseLab.
I could not really decide yet what case would be best for the built and hope you can help wih your recomendations.
I have planned to use the following parts fort he built up and did buy most part exept the water cooling parts, as not sure on the case setup so far:

Asus Rampage IV fully water cooled with Interl Core i7 3960
64 GB Dominator RAM
1 x GTX690 or 3 x GTX680 Nvida all fully wateer cooled
LG Electronics BH10LS Blu-ray Disc Writer
Asus Xonar Essence STX 2.0 Sound
1 x SSD 500GB Samsung 840 Basic Series 2.5"
3 x 2000GB WD Red WD20EFRX 64MB 3.5"

Now on some other part I want to use:

Water Cooling Computer will be a Aquacomputer aquaero 5 PRO USB Fan-Controller

Water pump(s)- not sure to run one or two to have more security ifone fails

Aquacomputer Aquastream XT USB 12V

Water reservoir
EK Water Blocks EK-BAY SPIN Reservoir
http://www.aquatuning.de/product_info.php/info/p13558_EK-Water-Blocks-EK-BAY-SPIN-Reservoir-CSQ---Acetal.html

Now on the power supply I also did not decide yet.

On your case, I like both the MAGNUM MH10 and TH10. I defently want to run a nice water cooling system so it would be nice if youcan give some recomendations on what case you would choose and how you would built it. What the advantage and dis advantage of both.
I personally had the idea to have the radiator built in the ground flooring as seperate, so there is very little hot air to run into the mainboard area, … but agian really looking forward to your thoughts!

Thanks
Fabian

All the components you listed will fit in either case.
I just have a few points to contribute:

1) Consider the radiators you wish to use.
TH10 has a lot more space for thicker radiators if you mount them on the top and bottom of the case.
Consider whether you are running fans in push & pull or just one or the other.

2) If you want to isolate the heat generated by the radiators, you could go with the MH10 + Pedestal, which is similar in size to the TH10.
TH10 + Pedestal seems sort of excessive, but this is OCN.
Either way, it will be a big case.

I feel like I already went overkill with the M8 I have.
So much room!

So you would do a m10 the pedestral is the best way to keep the heat out of main section?
post #4 of 5
I'd think putting the rads in the top would be the best bet since heat rises. Plus, my computers always end up with something besides or behind them and out the top is the only sure bet, I've found, of getting heat away. So I'd go for the th10 which would fit 2 4x120 rads on top.

The pedestal provides the best heat isolation and also allows for bigger rads. Builds can be exceptionally clean looking The downside is that it is a more expensive solution.
