Dont worry I couldnt use mine for more than a couple days before I went back to my A04. The AP181 is just an awful fan in terms of noise, this was the major killer for me.

I love this case and that is an awesome build longroadtrip. I am planning to wc with this case right now.

And that is a noiseblocker on the Big shuriken?

Thanks netdevil!

The fan is a Noiseblocker on a Prolimatech Samuel 17. I'll have more photos in a couple of days once the rest of the sleeving is done and the case window is cut.

PC-V600FB
All of these are good cases, but each has their pros and cons...The key to building a great mATX build is planning.

Thank you for your reply..

which one of these cases is most optimal for custom watercooling?
post #3158 of 13159
How much modding do you want to do? That will make a big difference in the cases. I would tend to lean towards the PC-V600FB or the PC-A04B...although there are people that have w/c'd in both silverstone cases...

I dont want to do to much modding, but in order to cool my cpu and gpu with water, wont i need atleast a 240mm radiator? is it even possible to fit something like that in a m-atx case?
post #3160 of 13159
It is certainly possible..but the issue is that you will probably need to do some modding in order to do it. Most mATX cases aren't designed with w/c in mind. They are designed for a small footprint. There are people on here who have shoe-horned w/c into mITX cases as well.

Other options are to get multiple 120mm or 200mm rads...take the time to look through the build logs...there are plenty of people who have done it, it just takes a little bit of work.
