Throw the best case for these requirements at me! With a catch :)

post #1 of 10

Evening OCN smile.gif

After recently finishing one of my builds, I realized that it's actually very loud frown.gif I wanted to do it "properly" this time, but just didn't have the money, so I cut corners which is a big no-no.

So here's the question people: What is the best rated case, from a reputable brand that can support this hardware (preferably without heavy modding), preferably with a side panel (on the left side), and also needs it either be a mid/full tower smile.gif

ATX Motherboard (not a problem)

GPU Length of 11 inches (I've got a 7970)

A place in view in the case to mount my SSD (standard 2.5in form factor)

A place in the case to mount a D5 pump with a floor mount (roughly a 120mm fan space for adequate room)

A thick 480mm radiator (EK Cool-Stream XTX size)

A slimmer 360mm radiator (EK Cool-Stream XT, Alphacool XT45 ect.)


That's it, but I'd like it to have a basement for mounting the bigger rads. I've looked at the Silverstone TJ-11, but here's the catch to this post: it NEEDS to be UNDER $350, used or new! The TJ-07 has a really good look to it, but only fits a 360 in the bottom.. I need all this rad space for some serious overclocking, plus CrossfireX upgrades in the future, so it's future-proofing my build effectively.

I've been thinking most about the NZXT Switch 810, with a custom Dwood mods pedestal, but that requires a lot of extra parts, and drilling into the case.. So that one is kinda on the back burner for now. But from personal experience, what would your best ideas be for this kind of a project?

Thanks a bunch OCN smile.gif

Have you considered the Corsair 550D? It's supposed to be build for quiet bud still has a good deal of space inside.

Here's a link to the specs, and maybe it would also accommodate the extra rad space:

Corsair Obsidian 550D

Also, If space is more important that quiet... you can totally wait for the new Corsair 900D Godzilla... OMG is this case huge and incredibly versatile... I think they are projecting October for it's availability and the price tag is only $350!!

Here's the link:

Corsair 900D Godzilla

the Corsair 900D should be coming out relatively soon so that is what i would recommend.

if you can't wait, caselabs and mountain mods both offer cases that fit your requirements. check out these two thumb.gif

Space is more important than silence, I can reduce noise through low noise adapters, and silent fans. I'm just not honestly sure that I can I can fit everything I exactly want in that case, how's the Merlin SM8? It looks amazing, I can put all the rads I could ever want in it, it has plenty of space to live in it, and I can order a large window with it smile.gif does anyone have any idea of how the the case's noise levels are? I'm really curious now biggrin.gif

step 1 buy a fan controller
step 2 install the fan controller in your current rig
step 3 dial down your fans till they match the decibel level you want biggrin.gif

with the amount of rad surface area (and the amount of liquid to fill those rads) you have, you can practically run the frigging thing w/o any fans biggrin.gif

you simply need to realize 60C while under full synthetic load is NOT going to hurt your system biggrin.gif

I hate fan controllers, I think they look hideous... And the fans (when turned down) make a grinding noise, and it's even more annoying

If you don't like the new Corsair 900D then the SM8 would be your best bet. CaseLabs cases offer a lot of case "parts" available for individual sale, so if modding is your game, then you don't have to worry about screwing up a solder or cut and junking the whole case. PS these cases are BIG, so you should have no problem fitting 10-15 fans or other mountables in them.

Goodie biggrin.gif CaseLabs it is! I really liked the Switch 810, but after looking around, there are simply better options tongue.gif I can just put sound dampening material on the inside, it'll be cool beans then smile.gif

Alright, so small change of plans.. Still going CaseLabs for this rebuild/ overhaul, but I've decided on the Magnum SMH10.. I've fallen in love with the design, features, and the SPACE!!!! it looks amazing, has DUAL 480mm radiator support, and all the room I'll ever need, plus it has a basement PSU mount to help clean stuff up a bit smile.gif I've got big big plans for this case, like around either dual 7970+ FX-8350+ 16Gb memory+ VRM's, all water cooled in complete silence.. Ahhh just the sound of that project has me excited. Maybe if I save long enough I can afford dual 8990's ;D

I'll keep dreaming on the cards though XD
