Any mid-tower better for water cooling than Define S???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be re-building my machine in the next month or two to replace my AIOs with a full CPU/GPU loop. I really like the Enthoo Primo and Luxe, but I really don't want to go bigger than a mid-tower and it doesn't look like the Pro will accommodate very many radiators without removing the cages. So with that in mind, is there a mid-tower case out there that would provide more radiator space than the Define S?

I need it to hold an ATX mobo, two SSDs, a conventional HDD, and two 980tis in addition to the pump, res, and at least the equivalent of a 420 and 360 rad. The loop would include the video cards and a 4790k @4.8ghz.

I think that'd technically fall into mid tower, it's just a bit wider. Personally, this is probably one of my favorite cases I've ever built something in, and I've used A LOT over the years, even Lian Li's which I'm a snob over.

Oh crap, I missed the 420 radiator part.
