Mid size case fit a TT FRIO CPU cooler?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a spare Thermaltake FRIO CPU cooler I'm trying to get some use out of. I am also in the process of building a cheap PC for the family. Any suggestions on a mid size case that can fit a TTFRIO cpu cooler with side panel closed and also designed for good cooling right out of the box? The room it's going to be kept in get's hotter than others and again it's a cheap build so going to use what parts I have.

-Thanks!thumb.gif

You didn't specify what is your budget but the Arc Midi R2 would be a great case

Oh sorry. Usually I'm too specific and nobody ever replies. No budget wink.gif Cheaper the better but under $100 preferably.

The HAF 912 supports CPU coolers up to 170 mm. The Thermaltake Frio is a 165 mm cooler. Suffice to say, the $60 HAF 912 should work. I dunno about stock cooling though, I put in six Rosewill RFX-120 fans in the case, which adds $44.76 to the cost.
