Best case for a triple 120 rad?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
After putting my watercooling together in this beat up case, I have decided that I need a new case to hold it all in. Suggestions for the case are appreciated!

Stuff I want from the case: (listed most important to least)

1.Under $150
2.Pre-drilled radiator mount for a triple rad
3.Good air flow for hard drive and other non water cooled components
4.Good build quality (I need this to last through multiple builds)
5.Not flashy(I will replace led fans, but the case itself should be respectable)
6.Roomy, not cramped (Not really necessary as long as it has good airflow and can fit everything)

Thanks for any help!

(2) I do not think you will find a case for $150.00 with Pre drilled mounts.

This is a steal if of a case for the price, but you will need to add a AC Ryan Triple rad grill to the top. Only a BlackIce 360GTS or Swiftech would fit do to the radiator dept and PSU mount inside case. But it will be a very very quiet case solid constructions. And if you decide later you would like to add another radiator, you can add a BlackIce 240GTX to the front standing upright.

Stretch your budget for a Cosmos S. Very roomy and pretty much made for WCing. For the Hard drives it comes with the drive bay cooler, and even then has enough room for another 120mm fan or two on the front, the 230mm side fan, and two more 120mm's on the bottom and back. More sleek than flashy.

I spent 186CAD shipped for mine.

Get a Coolermaster HAF. It has predrilled holes for a 320 radiator but it costs $160.
