Any cases that will support a 200mm phobya without modding?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm in the market for a case that doesnt require me to do much, to fit the watercooling equipment i already have, in it.

I was looking at the cosmos II cuz it is just so absolutely huge that i wont have to worry about future upgrades not fitting. HOWEVER, it looks like getting the phobya in there would require removal of the HD tray, including removal of the rivets holding it in.

I'm thinking i may just have to set the rad in there, with fans attached and let it be until i can replace it with a 360 of some variety...

right now i'm using a corsair 600t with xspc 240 in the top and the phobya 200 in the front with push/pull 200s and the wire screen on the front of the case removed.

Lets see if the day crew has any suggestions.

I'm thinking my best bet will be to just get the cosmos II case and rest the 200mm rad in the case, without mounting. Then i will work on replacing it with a 360 and put the hd trays back in it.

Between the handles that run down both sides of the top panel is another generous helping of mesh that allows air to be pushed out courtesy of a 120mm non-LED exhaust fan. As mentioned earlier, this cover is removed by first loosening the thumbscrew on the back panel and then sliding it back and away. Users can go with three 120mm or two 140mm fans in this location with the option of a single 200mm fan or radiators up to 360mm for some high-end cooling. At the front of the top panel is a second sliding cover, but this time it’s spring-loaded and hides some extra surprises.
Seams you can mount 3x120 or a 200mm in the top. (maybe even 2x200mm.. not sure)
I aslo found that you can fit a 200mm in push/pull in the front. but that requires you remove some HDD cages, but it has room for 11 +2 x-dock smile.gif
Seams like a good choice imo.

Look into the Cooler Master Storm Trooper series. Lots of room and tons of built in modularity and any additional mods are fairly easy.

Also CORSAIR 600T will take a 200mm up front and maybe up top.. or 2x120 up top (3x120 with modding)
Cage moving is also required for this one.
