H110 recommended case

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I just bought Corsair H110, but stupid me checked just whether my case has 2 properly placed 140mm mounts and not whether there is also place for radiator (Fractal Design Define R3). So now I have to upgrade also my case. Which case would you recommend?

  • ATX (my mb: Z77A-GD80 thunderbolt)
  • Midi-tower
  • Without side window if possible
  • USB3 is a plus
  • Price doesn't really matter
  • If it would have minimalistic design as Fractal Design Define has, that would be very shiny smile.gif


I checked Fractal Design R4, but I'm afraid there won't be enough room for the radiator. It is bigger than R3, however my motherboard is kind of retarded and the radiator can't cover it even a little because of this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1799304/IMG_0198.jpg

Thank you

Can you not return it and get a H100i?

I think the R4 can mount a H110 in the front.

What is the problem with the Fractal R3? I have this case and was also thinking of getting the h110. Does it interfere with the motherboard? Can you mount the fans on top of the case to save space?
