Best case for triple 360mm rad or bigger? 2020

Any thoughts on what case would be the easiest to build a 3x360mm rad in, possibly bigger rads in?


So far the candidates are the O11XL and Phanteks 719


So far here are the problems I've seen


O11XL

- max is 3x360, not bigger
- hdd cage is not ventilated, possibly bad temp issues?
- 2 pieces of glass: hard to keep clean and shatter possibility


Phanteks 719
- Using 3 rads on [top,side,front] is a challenge in terms of space
- If bottom rad is used, it blocks the use of 3.5" hdd cages




Radiator: HWL 360 GTX (54mm), XSPC 360 EX (35mm) + TX (21mm)

Fans: Gentle Typhoon 2150 (25mm)

Not consider going external radiator route?

Phanteks 719 is incredibly restrictive in what you can fit in it. Hard pass as far as I'm concerned.
If you want to run 120mm rads, the O11D XL is pretty much a no brainer.
Beyond that, I have no idea. The Define 7 XL can fit 2x 420s, but I'm not quite satisfied with it. Starting to come to the realization that the MO-RA3 is my only option... if it were ever to be in stock...

x71 can hold a 420 in front and maybe a 480 if you dont need your bays for dvdroms etc, Without any mods you can get a 360 in top 420 in front and a 240 on bottom side. If you don't mind doing a little modding you can get a 420 in front 360 in top and a 360 in bottom.

Have you looked at dazmode. He has stock. I ended up getting one from heatkiller germany store. It was significant cheaper than dazmode.

0-11XL is extremely popular for a reason. Can fit 3 360 without any issues.
It can also fit 2 420's as well.

I ran 3 360's plus 3 D5 pumps in series in my 0-11XL without any issue and still had room to spare as I removed all the rear HDD cages/sleds.

Airflow doesn't seem to be too great with this case


I'll have to look into how people are configuring it for watercool.

I already have the mentioned rads, except the HWL 360GTX.


Also I'm not interested in modding the case :|

One thing I liked about this case is that it doesn't look so big to support three triple radiators, but it does so with ease. As for the temperature of the hard drives, if you are going to put mechanics you can interspers between the two cage some small fan, I have done it. If they're SSDs, you don't need it.
