The LIAN LI PC-A05NB may be small but the inside is huge. Also with foam anything can be quieter.
I got a Sliver Arrow in mine love this case.

Enthusiasm is one thing, but I don't have such high hobby dollars at the moment. If I were not planning for a bulldozer build as well then I would of course give more consideration to a loop, but that also means increased maintenance for what may not be worth it.

Just saying. I hear the full custom loop bit all the time. As well as minimum $400 for a proper loop. Can't justify in my case.

buy a gpu block and watercool your card.

a 360 is more than enough for a cpu + gpu.

Honestly wish I knew more about the FD cases, but from what I have read and can tell they seem like decent cases.

How much would that cost me to add it in a RASA 360?

Have you looked at the Silverstone Raven RV02? I want the NZXR Phantom but after seeing the RV02 I'm about to purchase it!

I have considered it, but space is actually less than desired due to layout and orientation. For instance, as big as the case it is there is only room for 3 Hard Drives. Secondly water cooling due to airflow of the case can be an issue if you go with that. Also, anything like optical drives could be an issue depending on how long your optical drive is so it does not have clearance issues with your motherboard/cooling. Not to mention it messes with the cool looking fascia. The inside is also apparently easy to scratch given how they painted it. Overall seems decent, but seems like a lot of risk and overpriced.

Not sure if this will answer your question or not, but it is a Sapphire 5870 2GB Eyefinity card.

I gave thought to selling it as it is new and getting something just as good, but if this works well and does the job then that is all I care about right now. It will hooked up to a U2311h and in the future I will either buy another for dual monitor (currently pairing it with my monitor of age below) or simply upgrade to a larger monitor (probably another ultrasharp IPS panel).
