Midi case for water cooling.

I am on the lookout for a midi case instead of my Corsair obsidian 750D. Atm i use an I7 8700k clocked to 5GHz and i also have an overclocked GTX 1080 TI. With 2 2x120mm rads it can hold the temps ok. Not great but acceptable. But i would really like a smaller build but still being able to hold 2 2x120mm radiators. But i cant seem to find any.

Air is for breathing, water is for cooling.

Fractal Design Meshify C is small for an ATX case and can fit a 240 up top and a 240 up front and it's a mid tower.

If you're going to run push/pull on the front radiator your GPU might not fit depending how long it is though.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

The Fractal Design Meshify C is fairly compact ATX mid tower, and it easily fits 2 240's.

Well that didnt work. Problem was with the top radiator. First of i forgot it was a 280 i had and also extra thick or how you would put it. So that would mean a PC without RAM
But i can see even with a normal 240 rad my RAM is still in the way. They are pretty high. So im going to need to buy new RAM and rad. Also figured out i would probably run into some heat issues considering i am overclocking.
So i think im gonna go for a S2 version. I know its pretty much the same size as the Obsidian 750d but i just feel for a new case an i like the Meshify design with dark glass side panel.
That way i should have all the space i need.

Edit: I can see the S2 version have the motherboard hanging close to the top as well so i fear there is no room either. There are good room in my 750D to the top from the motherboard.
Im lost. Dont know what to get now

The S2 might still work, because the case is wider than the Meshify C.
Here are the dimensions:
Meshify C: 409 x 217 x 453mm (length x width x height)

Meshify S2: 538 x 233 x 465 mm (length x width x height)

So if the extra 16mm of width "helps" with your RAM, then you could even go 2x360, 1 in the top AND 1 in the front

Yeah a 360 would be perfect instead of my very thick 280. Just need to save some more money for everything.
