Coolermaster Haf X vs Azza Solano 1000r vs ???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Problem: Gtx 4** series has gotten so cheap over the last month, that I somehow managed to convine myself to buy three gtx 470s (and I love silent computing ???). But needless to say, all up they cost me around $410.

Now I am about to receive my third card, and do tri-sli on stock cooling
I would love to slap on some accelero xtreme coolers, but there just isn't enough room. And watercooling is out of the question. So I need a case to keep them cool.

Solution: I was thinking of either getting a Haf X or Azza 1000r because of their large side intake fans - this ought to keep tri-sli cool right? So what is the best case for this type of stupidity? You can suggest anything you like - doesn't have to be these two holy abominations of cases.

Cheers,
Goldboy

I'd say put a box fan next to it with the side of the case off. Though if you want a case that can keep side panels on I'd choose the HAF (either 932 or X). As the both mount plenty of fans. I'd personally use a box fan, though that wouldn't go with your love of silent computing. So yeah, get either a HAF X or 932. Throw some fans on there and you should be good.

Azza Solano 1000 is a nice case but I would go for Haf X. Two things Azza case really need to work on. The back panel doesn't have much space you can work around if you want to do cable management. In my case, it barely closes the back panel. Second, if you have big cooler, the side fan needs to do a mod in order to use side fan. Hope this helps.
