I want to build a BEAST pc inside a small case, suggestions? :D

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm really keen on gaming and Iv'e recently had the urge to step things up a notch!

I'm purchasing myself a 780 Ti and a i7 4770k very soon. I'm thinking about cooling the i7 with my Corsair H100 and purchasing a new case to go with these.

I'm currently running Radeon 6970 x2 crossfire in a HUGE case - Coolermaster HAF X and I'd LOVE to have a tiny case which looks BADASS! (transparent side panel) but runs like a beast while also supporting the card size AND the H100. I'd love to install awesome lighting which suits the cases personality while having relatively good airflow.

I'm not exactly amazing at finding things and will probably buy something the complete wrong size for both needs.

Do you guys have any suggestions? I'm purchasing this case from overclockers.co.uk

Cheers!

Hi there,

Not sure if you already purchased your case or not.

Recently purchased a BitFenix case to build a small form factor for my son, he has a full size video card in there, it's a really nice case. Here's a vid from BitFenix, they have tons of detailed reviews on their channels (with measurements and stuff).

You may not want a miniature gaming beast but they have plenty of choices for all sizes.
They also have a nice support team.

Another case I really liked was a Raven by Silverstone.

Case is so quiet, first time I tried turning the system on, I thought I messed up, but it was on! So quiet!
Also plenty of choices, just make sure you measure everything and don't hesitate to call manufacturers and ask.

I'm a complete noob at building stuff and I learned the hard way that 1/8" can ruin your life, but I love cases and don't mind spending a little extra for quality and look. I'm sure these are not the best choices for your money, but worth looking into wink.gif

Hopefully the pros here will give you good advice, this is the best places to ask for sure.

My first built, Antec 900

Good luck!
