Small case for watercooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get the case down in size, the build will be:

1155 or 1150 cpu/mobo
GTX Titan or GTX 780
4 normal hdd
1-2 ssd

Cpu / Gpu will be watercooled and overclocked so dont think a 240mm rad will do it.

Have been looking at the Corsair 350D and mount a 140mm up front + 240mm in the roof, but dont think i can fit all the hdd's in there then.

Any good suggestions?

MountainMods has a nice small case made for watercooling called the H2g0. It starts at ~$200 which is not bad for what you get. It's about twice what the 350D costs, but it is shorter and wider with a horizontal mobo tray and will easily fit what you want in there. You can customize it completely and have it built to order with things like extra windows, custom paint, colored acrylic, and a carry handle, but that quickly drives the price closer to $300.

You will need the additional HDD cage($15) to fit 6 HDD's, it only fits 3 out of the box.

The MM H2g0 is just out of the price range: It quickly ads up to 250$ with a window, hdd cage and so on, on top of that i have to pay taxes and that brings the total up to 350$ and then the shipping to Norway. All in all it goes north of 400$ and that's like 4 times the price of a 350D here in Norway.

The S3 is an alternative, but with Mini-ITX your sort of very limited. I would like to stick to mATX. Also i don't know if a single 280mm rad is enough for a 3770k / 4770k (might even go 2011) overclocked and a Titan / GTX 780.

It does not have to be a micro sized case, but around the size of the 350D.
