Best case to show the inside beauty - good airflow and for custom loops

Hey everyone,

I'm planning a new Threadripper build - 1950x or 1900x.

GPUs will be 2x 1070s for now.

I am looking to do a custom loop for the CPU but not the GPUs.

I want to build on this rig over time and upgrade/add parts. No idea on any plans but I just want the options and room available.

I have a few cases that I've been looking at:

Corsair 750D
Phantek Enthoo Pro TG
Lian Li O11 Dynamic
Corsair 1000D (extreme option XD)


Any advice on the above or other cases would be welcome - Budget isn't a big deal right now for the case, I just want something that has good performance all round, easy to build in,shows off the inside, good features etc...

Thanks!

Ive had 3/4 cases on that list. Your better off getting the dynamic Air. Everyone and their mom has a dynamic. The air does cool better and you wont be exactly like everyone else. 1000d is a ******** case if not dual system. Get the 11 Air.

PC 011 or look into the Fractal Design Meshify S2. I was torn between the two myself. Went with the Meshify S2 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%)

Fractal s2 or r6 is another great choice. While the dynamic air is plastic and the surfaces on the dynamic is steel. It is the worst feeling finish painted steel surface I ever seen on a case. I get the price point but at the same time its sandpaper grade.

I do like the look of the dynamic air - looks like it's a great case but I just found out these cases don't fit the bigger air coolers like Dark Rock Pro etc... I'm hoping to water cool but what if in future I want to move to a big air cooler?

Is the PC-011 WGX version any bigger or better?

The Fractal S2 - looks amazing but I'm not sure I like the front mesh or not lol

What are people's thoughts on the NZXT H700i?

EDIT Ignore the NZXT H700i comment - I'm not liking it from what I've seen.

My wifes rig is in the Pc-o11 wgx. I like it better than the dynamics as it's a what you expect from a lian li case. Aluminum and a very premium looking case. In terms of functionality, the dynamics will play nicer.

Still no idea on what case to get.

I do really like the Lian Li cases. I was looking at the v3000 - looks nice.

I've seen that some GPUs don't fit in the PC-011 cases? I don't want to vertically mount the GPU and I like space - I just wish they had a larger version of this case.
