lian li x2000f or 700d

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm currently planning my first build and can't decide between these two cases. I've also considered the tj07 and tj11 but decided that i like these better.

Corsair 700D

I'm going to be water cooling in the future no matter which case i get.
The only issue i have is if i can fit a rad on the front of the lian li without the GPU (6950) getting in the way. Based on my sketch up drawing i should be able to but i would like confirmation as to whether or not it is doable.

I'd also prefer to get the X500FX but I'm pretty sure i wouldn't have the room for a radiator up front.

I would go with the 700D will be real easy to add water cooling to that setup

For watercooling, the 700D is the way to go. Easiest out of them all to mount a radiator and fit anything you want in there.

I like 700d room for a 480 rad on top but need to cut it for fan air flow.
700d looks to have more room also in x2000f side mounter dvd try is nice in my application but looks harder for water setup.
My water in 700d.

fitting a 420 rad in the lian li is easy:cool: making sure the GPU doesn't run into it is the hard part:(
