Need advice on a case

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well looks like I'm finally going to start ordering parts for my computer, but I still can't make a firm decision about what case to get.

I'm looking for something that's decently wide, and has room to easily mount a PA120.3 (or two ). I'd prefer to have the radiator mounted on it's side, like in this TJ07. Room for one of those cool looking cyclone reservoirs would be a bonus

I'm trying not to spend more than $200, $250 tops. As a college student living with his parents for the summer, I have a large disposable income .

I won't be getting the water cooling parts for another couple weeks (I think), so don't expect pictures too soon.

You know, I've been really thinking about that one. I've thought buying it and putting in that radiator that can hold 9 fans on both sides, just to be flashy. I think this is probably the only case that could hold it without looking dwarfed in comparison. I saw the case mod on this website by ..Pjieltz? Paul is his real name. He did a REALLY good job.

I was hoping to spend less, but I don't really care. You only live once.

Edit: I realize the radiator I mentioned probably isn't that good. If anyone could point out some data, I'd be very grateful.
