cases that can fit dual 240mm or 240mm/360mm

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a nice case aside from the many caselabs cases I've been considerinng (sm5, s5 or sm8) that can fit either dual 240mm radiators or a 240mm and 360mm radiator. I am looking to watercool a gtx 780, and haswell cpu and possibly get two gtx 770's instead of one gtx 780 not sure yet.

I was looking at the corsair 350d but it I think it would look a little cramped because I am planning to use a SSD+ 2HHDs in raid 0 for storage.I don;t know how I would mount the HHD's and I plan to use a lamptron fan controller so only one drive bay can't really use icydock or anything. I don't want to use my switch 810, the corsair 650d looks okay but pretty expensive for the feature set..and the drive caddies would totally get in the way of clean looking build. Fractal Design Arc Midi is possiblity but still the same problem the others would have..

At this point I'm really looking for something that would beat the sm5/sm8.. which i know is next to impossible but by shaving the costs of the case I could probably get dual gtx 770's which I really want.. but the flexiblity of those CL cases is hard to pass up

CoolerMaster CM 690 II will fit two 240mm rads (one thin), a 120mm rad and two HDDs without modding. You can put your SSD pretty much anywhere with some sticky backed Velcro. Plus it is fairly cheap.

bump any others? would prefer matx or mid tower atx. Don't want full if possible. I have a cm 690 II, its a okay case but don't want to use it for this upcoming build.

Ideally i want room for 240mm rad in the front, 240/360 rad on the top with room for two HDD's (i plan to just velcro the ssd) and room for a tube style res in the case. The caselab cases offer mounting points on the cable side of the case for really easy management there.

I like the xl, thinking about it.

What's wrong with the Switch 810? That was going to be my first recommendation.

When do you need the case? The new Fractal Arc XL that was mentioned above won't be out for a few more weeks.

The CM Storm Trooper/Stryker can fit a 240 on the top and one on the bottom...if you remove the little storage container. I'd also take out the lower HDD bay




Unless you plan to use a thick radiator in the front or a very long PSU you can reposition the HDD bay in the Arc Midi R2 and have a thick 240 on top and a thin 240 in the front.

I already have one, and im most likely keeping it for my brother whos gonna take over my sig rig. Nothing is really wrong with it, its a nice case but the plastic feel kinda turns me off a little. So does the cheap metal feel of some lesser cases too.

Yeah with the arc xl you will get more room for the tube res vs the midi. You could move the hard drives up to the 5.25 bays if you want. Both of the fractal cases have ssd mounts behind the motherboard. The xl ones have been reworked i think to make them easier to use. I am looking forward to a review of this case.

The other case I am waiting for is the Lian Li D600. They haven't said when it will be out yet though.

The NZXT H630 was released today, it could conceivably support 3x 240mm radiators (no drive cages), or 2x 360. If you do a dual 240mm or a 360mm + 240mm, you can use the dual 3.5" bay mounted to the bottom of the 5.25" bays and have the SSD mounts on the back of the motherboard tray.



Edit: Watercooling build in the case, I guess the airflow is junk.
