hey guys so ive really tried to get stuff done in my corsair 240 air and even though I love the case, it just needs a tad more space for me

heres a picture of what I did today, managed to get 2 rads in etc with hybrid card... great success! not.. temps are absolutely horrible on the Hybrid

im going to go out tomorrow and buy a new case ive been waiting to long to finish off my PC... I need suggests

do prefer cases with good cable management and needs to be preferably small as I have a ITX mb

also do like a window to see the goodies smile.gif

another good option



either should do just fine. choose between availability and price.

if you prefer a mATX instead they also make one

The Arc Mini R2 is awesome, I loved mine! Maybe a bit large for you though as you're using ITX.

nothing wrong with the arc mini... that's why it's my initial recommendation. the evolv is a fairly new product and haven't really had a ton of feedback like the arc has. the evolv is also not "smaller" then the arc since it's designed to accommodate full blown liquid cooling rigs. as i said. it's really a matter of price and availability which determines which to get and either is fine.

looking at the reviews im not sure if you can use a 240mm up top on the arc mini and still be able to use the optical drive?
as I havnt had a optical drive in ages and would love to have one again.. I just hope it can still be possible with a 240 up top redface.gif

i haven't had an optical drive installed in any machine i've built for at least over a decade biggrin.gif if i needed to reinstall the OS, i just bust out the trusty USB external dvd drive and do that smile.gif nothing really comes on a disk anymore (nothing i use anyway) everything is streamed from the net or thumb drive if you needed to transfer something. the only thing that i own that uses a 5.25 bay is actually my fan controller smile.gif but i can just use the mobo to control the speed if i wanted to.

anyway. either case works well for your purpose.

Fractal Design Node 804 Should do it- prob similar/same size as your AIR 240.
