Please and Thanks

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
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.

Everything can fit a rad, more or less, just depends on how much cutting you want to do.

IMO the Cosmos appears it would hold a 240 or 360 rad up top fairly easily.

Yeah, I've always said, get a case you like and build a system around it, big or small. Just be creative!

...Mountain Mods all the way I could move my bedroom into my Ascension.

Yep, you should read the "water Cooling Essentials" threads. They will definitley help you understand water cooling and even the advice you receive. What is your case budget?

I always say that if you've built your own system, you already have the basic skills needed for water cooling. Just study and ask lots of questions. The folks here are always eager to help.
