Hello all
I just bought a quad core and I want to water cool it, problem is I have no clue what case to get. I need one that is big, good for cable management, and also water cooling. My current case has a slide out motherboard tray which is a nice feature, so if the new one can have that then it would be great. Thanks for the help.

Welcome...

I would first figure out where you want your radiator to mount, then proceed from there. Some cases are better for top mounts, some back, and some internal even.

Actually I think the Stacker that you have would be perfect for most WC setups...

For best cooling i'd imagine top mount would be best. personally i have it mounted at the back for space:



whatever suits your needs is all thats important. but i'd imagine if you're one to go watercooling you'll wanna get the best performance possible. some have the Radiator completely seperated from the tower, but i'd be completely against this. having it all contained within/on the tower is less to worry about should you need to move the rig, for example; a lan party. and it's also less likely anything will get damaged.
