Compact Cube Case for MATX

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'd like to start a small, water cooled high-end build soon. The plan for this system will be quiet operation in a very small and compact form factor (my preference is for cubes).

I really like the Corsair Air 240, but the problem it is that I want to fit at least two 280 radiators in there, and that could be too tight a fit without sacrificing cooling performance. On the other hand, the Corsair Air 540 does check all the boxes, except that I find it a bit too large in the vertical. As I will only utilize a single PCIe slot, there would be a lot of unused space at the bottom. Sure, I could fill that up with a radiator, but I just don't like putting more in there as needed.

Would appreciate any suggestions, as I seem to have no luck finding one myself.

Nope, don't quite like it. I'd also want the case to feel a bit more premium as well. Besides, I have a personal thing against Thermaltake.

You mentioned you wanted something more premium. Fractal Design Node 804 might fit the bill.
