Decisions Decisions, need a new full tower case TONIGHT!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well, it's that time again. Looking to order a full case tower here in the next few minutes and oh so many choices.

Been looking at the HAF X, CM Storm Series Trooper, and a NZXT case, just can't make up my mind but I really need to hurry up and order one.

are you going for air cooling, water cooling? Do you really need fullsize? What are your systems specs?

if you are going water cooling, go Nzxt Switch, Bitfenix Shinobi XL. Imo best stock fullsize cases for watercooling.
If you are interested in a Mid, get the Fractal Midi R2. you can throw two 240s in it no sweat.

But those are just my votes. tongue.gif

Overkill for just using the H60 but if you have plans for a custom loop then ok. I picked up the HAF X because it will fit a 360 rad up top inside without mods. I also like the idea of the 2 200mm fans up top even when I put the 360 on the inside.

That's what I was wondering about the HAF X, how many radiators I could fit inside of it without having to do any crazy moding.

Well a 360 fits up top without any mods, but im sure with a little cleaver HDD cage removal in the front you could cram a 240 in the front without getting too crazy, but IMO that would be overkill unless your running more than 2 GPU's. If your cooling parts are good quality I think a thick style 360 and good fans along with a good pump would be just fine for a cpu and dual gpu's

Looking for a little bit of style along with my case as well, which is why I currently have the Antec 902.

Guess I'm gonna just order the HAF X right now.
