cases that can fit a 360mm rad internally?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
are there any choices under/around $200? full tower w/ side window? the corsair 800d costs too much.. i really like the silverstone ft02 but doesnt seem optimal for wc? not too big a fan of the haf-x (looks), but is that my best option for this price range? if so i might have to go with it because my antec 900 wont work..

HAF 932 and HAF X will fit a 360 internally without any issue. And they cost less than 200 I think. And they have side windows, the only issue being, the styling is not to everyones taste.

ATCS 840 can fit a 360 and you can get an optional window side panel.

Mountain Mods' Pinacle18 is prolly the best tower style case available atm that supports a 360mm rad without modding (it can actually fit two in it stock ). There is also the Pincale24 that fits a480mm rad in the top and a 360mm rad at the front

The Corsair Obsidian 800D also has provision for a 360 radiator mounted under the top panel, but you sacrifice using anything longer then 3/4 depth drive in the top drive bay (good space for a temp monitor, water level etc).

Next best option to fit a 360mm wothout any cutting would be the Silverstone TJ07 - it can take one on it's side in the bottom compartment, just use one of those radiator mounts and screw the mount to the bottom panel and the radiator into the mount.

Other then those, the rest of the fulltower cases need at least a little cutting and modding to fit a 360 radiator in.

if your PSU is not too deep. Both would still require you to mount them though - but no real modding would be needed.
But if you can do some basic modding, the Antec twelve hundred case can mount a 360 rad inside the the case at the front standing upwards.

As for the Antec 1200, avoid it. You'd have to do modding to fit it in this case and it's much smaller than the Cooler Master HAF 932 and HAF-X, not to mention inferior in nearly every regard. So here is a list of cases you should look at.

Cooler Master HAF 932 - if you don't want to shell out the bucks for an HAF-X
Cooler Master HAF-X
Silverstone Raven RV02 - Limited to more thin radiators
Cooler Master ATCS 840 - better top rad support than the other cases - much more space

This discussion never gets old to me.

I personally use or have used; Cosmos S, HAF X, and 800D to house 360 rads internally. They all have different pros and cons.

HAF X: Good airflow, great cable management. Not a lot of room for very thick rads, but they will fit, may hang over motherboard. Side window available/comes with.

Cosmos S: Good airflow depending how how you set up fans, horrible cable management. Not a lot of room for very thick rads, but they will fit, may hang over motherboard. Side window available.

800D: Mediocre airflow, good cable management. Plenty of room for thick rads. Side window comes with.

All 3 have LOTS of options as far as modding for extra rads besides the 360.

I would very much love to try out a CM ATCS840... maybe someday...
