Looking for small water cooling case.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As the title says i need a rather small case for water cooling, i had plans for the stryker but my dorm room will be unable to accomodate a larger case such as the stryker.

I really like the haf xb but from what i read it will only be able to hold a 240 in the front and a thin 120 in the back, but im looking for one that can hold at 2x240's or a 360 + 120

I dont really need more than 2 5.25" bays, and 2 drive bays(if need be i can just get some Velcro and throw my ssd on the side of the case or something so 1 maybe enough.

I need one that supports a ATX or larger mobo, which is why i was turned off by the prodigy as it only take m atx and i just bought the 990fx ud3. Support for push/pull on the rads would be nice but is not required. I dont need a lot io area as at most i will have 2 gpu's. I dont really care about other features such as, hot swap bays or tool-less designs so if you guys know one that would be great.

I have a 8350 that will be water cooled planning on getting 4.8ghz stable and when amd releases their new 9000 series gpus will upgrade from my 7850 and i will be water cooling the new gpu as well. I dont know how much heat the new gpu will generate thats why im going a little over and trying to get 480mm of rad space

There's also the corsair air 540, though it's wider, it's shorter/around the same size as most mid towers.

I'll suggest my case, the Arc Midi R2. It's a decent sized midtower but by no means is it large. It can accommodate two thick 240 rads in push/pull out of the box.

+1 for the midi R2. You can easily fit a 360mm and a 240mm in there if you remove the optical drive bays, or 2x240mm with those bays intact. There are also 2 SSD mounting points on the back of the mobo tray.
