Thermaltake V4 Replacement

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. Right now I have this case:



Here are few things I like about it:
- Great look
- Black interior
- Excellent airflow

It's very good and all but there are few things that I don't like:
- No cable management
- Cannot add big cards (5870)
- Very difficult to find aftermarket cooler that fits. I was looking at MUGEN 2, CM Hyper 212+, Coolit ECO.

Are there any cases out there that might have all the good things I like about this case without the things I don't like?

Cooler Master 690 II, maybe? (refurbished for cheaper)

I have the same case, and I agree there is no cable management

But you can fit a Mugen 2(you can't use the top exhaust fans then)

and i'm pretty sure you can fit a HD5870 there, because there is like ~10cm left with my HAWK installed.

How are your temps on 100% load using Mugen 2?

It says on the manual that 10.4 inches is maximum for GPU.

Your best bet is the Corsair 600t.

It's the cheapest of corsair cases and it is huge!

It's got more than enough room for large graphics cards, aftermarket coolers and comes with so many grommets to manage your cables, I drool just thinking about it. Don't think about it, just get it



You can see the grommets beside the cold cathode.

I'm also using the xfx 6950 if that helps as a reference in size.

It's also got an ALL BLACK interior and two 200mm fans that come with it. Both can be replaced and the top can also be replaced with two 120mm fans instead. Talk about excellent airflow.

Or maybe a NZXT Phantom?

New Phantom owner here. I bought a white one and it is a fantastic case. Exceptional cable management, amazing airflow (fits 7 fans, 1x140mm, 3x120mm and 3x200mm), more room then i know what to do with, painted interior, and beautiful styling with smooth lines. It's like a ferrari in a world of SUV-like cases.

If the boxy apparatus is more your thing though, I'd check out the HAF series. Specifically the HAF 932 black edition may be right up your alley.
