Hi guys,
I've been using a switch 810 for some time now and I want to replace it mainly cause it is a little bit flimsy/cheap and quite noisy (even if I'm watercooled)
I want my new case to be roughly as big as the switch, solid, silent, with a side window and I want a thick rad 240 and thick 360 to fit in there without modding the case.
My rig is:
-i7 2600k watercooled
-sli gtx570 watercooled
-swiftech mcp655 pump
-thick rad 240
-thick rad 360

Have you considered the new Corsair 900D? It's bigger than your current case and can fit a lot of water cooling.

Yes I know but I live in France and the 900D is currently unavailable, there is at least a 3 week-wait for this product... But you're right it looks like an amazing gigantic case !

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

Well to me I would buy a case that's going to last years, 3 weeks is worth the wait especially if you can make do for the interim. So that's my vote for 900D. Goodluck and all the best thumb.gif

Yes, I definitely want a case that lasts but I've always had a problem with waiting biggrin.gif

What about the Cooler Master Cosmos II?

Edit: Scratch that, no window, there is the Silverstone TJ07 though.

You would have to mod the hell out of that case for the rads. NOT worth it imo.

The cosmos 2 is not that great for watercooling IMO, only thin rad support? Never understand that.

Ah the Tj07 would be a great choice UNLESS you can go Caselabs which is another great Idea.
Mountain mods might be worthwhile as well, but from what I have heard (do not own one but would like to check one out) They are a bit flimsy and something you could make if you have the tools.

Out of that list I would pick the Silverstone tj07. The 800D will not fit a 360mm + 240mm rad without modding.
