What case for quiet water cooling build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to build a quiet water cooling setup. My phobya case I have now is just to loud. Whats out there for quiet water cooling friendly cases? Ill be cooling a cpu(3770k) and 2x gpus(7970s as of now). I've been looking at the nzxt switch or the h630. Are there any other quiet options that can fit enough rad for a quiet overclocked build? I'm not looking for dead silent... but the quieter the better. I already have a 120, 280, and 420 rad atm but I'm more than willing to switch to whatever sizes needed for a new quieter build. I'm using shark aerocool 140 fans and they are a bit to loud. All opinions are welcomed.

How quiet you case will be depends entirely on your fans and rads. Faster fans and higher fpi rads will be louder than slow fans and low fpi rads. They just won't cool as well

That's why I'm thinking of moving down to 120mm rads and gt fans. Seems that most 140mm fans are still lacking.

Gt ap-15 fans on a xspc ex or swiftech XP would be a good match.
