Fractal Design Define XL R2 or NZXT H630 for new build?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm planning to build a new rig later this year to update my old one.(Waiting for Haswell info and review)
And I plan to SLI my Asus GTX 670 4gb, and is trying to decide on these two case.
They seem pretty similiar, except one has a larger front intake fan, but no side fan, while the other has a side intake fan, but smaller Front intake fan.
So, if I Watercool my CPU with a NZXT Kraken 60, and use 2 GTX 670 4gb with Direct CII, which fan will help with cooling more?

The case I'm looking at are
Fractal Design Define XL R2 (With side intake fan)

NZXT H630

Definitely would go with the Fractal Design. Has mounts on the top of the case for the exhaust on the NZXT Kraken 60. Also, the intakes on the side and even the bottom of the case would help keep your video cards cool.

Good luck with whatever you decide thumb.gif

I'd go for H630 if watercooling but both will suffice with an AIO cooler. I am personally picking up a H630 for my next build.

I prefer the h630 for looks so I'm buying one as I wanted an all metal exterior but both cases will suit your purpose.

I like doors but I'd pay more money for a fractal with a metal door. - Honestly you will be pleased with both as they appear to be built really well. I doubt there will be much in cooling so it's down to looks smile.gif
