Need Help Finding a New Water Cooling Case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I been looking for awhile for a new Case. I keep striking out. Could someone give me some suggestions on some cases. I don't want anything massive (like 900D) or heavy right out of the box.

I have the following parts:

EATX Motherboard
CPU: 5960x
GTX 980 Ti
2x SSD
2x 3.25 Harddrives
1x 5.25 drive or (a good place to in mod a fan controller)

I did look at Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Glass. I keep hearing their problems with heat. mainly getting the hot air out of the case. Which would case problems with the top radiator. Any truth to this?


Anyways any good suggestions for cases I should look into?

Does it need to portable/fully enclosed?
I reckon benching cases can make great water cooling cases. Makes for easy access to everything and easy to keep it dust free tongue.gif
Then you can mount a large radiator to the desk next to it.

Here is my build in the non-glass version. I have a 360 up top with x3 AP60s and the front is a 280 with dual PH-F140SP and my temps are actually not as bad as some say. It does get hot but not to the point of throttling, max temps for the GPU never go above 45-50 and CPU 50 while playing bf4, overwatch, wow, elite dangerous

Thanks, I downgraded the case from a GIANT enthoo primo. Don't get me wrong, I love that case but it's not very LAN friendly when it's full of hardware and watercooling parts

Biggest problem with using that case is placement of 3.5 drives. If you put a radiator in the front you lose access to all the 3.5 drive locations.

Oh yes, I had forgotten that you wanted 3.5" drives. Have you thought of using a 3.5"/2.5" external dock? That is how mine is set up, I have both my SSDs on the inside and both of my 4tb HDDs in a dock.

I'm trying to do less cables as possible. Since I already have plenty of wires going to my PC.

I did notice that InWin 509 last night, Just have no idea when it will be released.
