Need a case for the Noctua NH-D15 (windowed + around $50?)

post #1 of 14

Hi guys and girls,

Looking to buy a case for the Noctua NH-D15.
I'm looking for a case around the $50 mark on AmazonUSA - I found this - but have no idea if it'll fit?
https://www.amazon.com/BitFenix-Tower-Case-BFC-COM-100-KKWS1-RP-Black/dp/B00LM2VZYA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1485534573&sr=8-1&keywords=bitfenix%2Bcomrade&th=1

Can anyone let me know for sure?

Despite living in the UK, this is for my lil cousin in the USA!

Thanks in advance - will rep! thumb.gif

On the inside, users will find plenty of room for their system, including clearance for CPU tower coolers up to 160mm in height

NHD-15 is 165 with fans or 160mm without.

Although there's a bit of wiggle room in the specs sometimes, (and flex in the case door tongue.gif)...

Also found a random post on Reddit where someone said a Hyper 212 wouldnt fit. I think its 160mm with the fan.

Bit late to the party here, but the 212evo didn't fit in mine.

Had to get a bit detective on this one. tongue.gif

Any suggestions?
With a Window case?

Sorry man, I dont know a lot about newer cases especially in that price range they tend to not be so wide. Something Corsair Carbide or Thermaltake possibly, not sure tbh. redface.gif

How flexible is he with price? I'm not sure of many cases around $50 that are wide enough but an extra ~$30 would get something like a Phanteks Enthoo Pro M

You are looking at budget cases. They are pretty skimpy at that price. And generally designed around the idea that people are putting modest hardware in them. Not gigantic coolers. You are going to need a bigger budget to get what you are looking for.

MasterBox 5 by Cooler Master might fit the bill.

That looks absolutely stunning redface.gif!
Price would ahve been better to be under $50, but if there's no case I can get with a window, then there's not much I can do, that increase the budget lol

Thanks guys - yeah seems like I'll need to increase the budget a lil to do it.
That CM one is ugly, but still a worth suggestion.

Leaning on the extra $30 for that really clean green-window: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M
