Recommend me a case for watercooling - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I kind of like the Rosewill Blackhawk-Ultra for WC-ing, it's got a unreal amount of space in it
With some hacking you can put a seriously huge rad up front (480mm rad?)
And you can stuff a 480mm rad up top if you dare or just 360 but yeah the switch 810 comes close

I just got a Case Labs STH10 and it's amazing. 2 480's up top, 2 in the bottom and the flex bays can take a rad. There are so many possibilities.

i second this. i have a switch 810, and i love it. but blackhawk-ultra is easily the best bang for buck case when it comes to watercooling. you could easily fit 3 240+ rads regardless of thickness with minor modifications. i just ordered mine 2 days ago, but won't be shipped until 2 weeks from now mad.gif

Absolutely gargantuan for a rad, i will probably get one! I saw them for 80$ so why not? Though it will be probably cost me 20$ for 9 AFB1212Hs ... biggrin.gif and 60$ for 3 fairly decent pumps

Will Caselabs do custom paint on those cases?
You just sold me to them, I sent them a support ticket asking for some customization but I don't really expect anything until next week.
post #28 of 28
I own a CaseLabs STH10 and so I can answer your quedtion:
Yes they do custom paint. They don't do it there, but they will send it to SmasherBasher (member here) who will do it for a reasonable fee. I don't think you will have to pay more than 300$ for a single color powder coating job. I paid around 180$ for mine.

CaseLab cases are the best there is, you will not regret your purchasr. That may very well be the last case you ever buy ....unless you buy an other CL case down the road.
