Case to support 240 and 480 rads

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. So im looking to dissipate about 550w of heat. I bought an EK XE 480x60 and EK XE 240x46 rads. Now i realize buying a case is much harder than i previously thought. Not looking to spend more more than $350 on a case as im already over budget on this system... Could buy two 360 rads but then im also out on these two rads..
Any help is appreciated! biggrin.gif

Something from Case Labs, maybe a Mountain Mods CYO, or the Corsair Obsidian 900D.

Pretty much this if you're looking for higher end cases. You could do a typical 900d or any number of other cases for cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

A Phantek Enthoo Primo can also handle those rads and costs less than the 900D

If you have the opportunity to actually see, touch and investigate the Primo and 900D side by side, I would highly doubt many would choose the 900D. The Primo is far better constructed, has a much more flexible design and more amenities. You never "get what you pay for" with Corsair cases, they are way overpriced and not the best of their classes.

Another vote for Phanteks Enthoo Primo. thumb.gif

Phanteks makes exceptionally well built quality case with lots of attention to airflow, design as well as thoughful integration of cable management, case / radiator fan speed control system, versatility of removing or moving HDD cage locations, and much more .. all at a price far below any other case with similar quality and features. This is very evident in Enthoo Primo.

If you can find a retailer who has Enthoo Primo on display as well as other similar size case, please go look at them. Look inside, and look at feature list. I'm sure you will be amazed at how good the Primo is. wink.gif
