Cases compatible with a 280mm radiator

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an NZXT Phantom with an h100 installed and im building a buddy a computer now. With the h110 released im a little stumped on which case would be best for a 280mm rad.

Any suggestions?

The problem with 280s is they are too wide to come down in front of your motherboard like 240s can sometimes. I had a 60mm thick 280 that I put fully on the top of my case, but I'm assuming you want it inside. The only real options (without modding) are full towers with plenty of room above the motherboard, like Corsair 800D dimensions or similar.
