Hey everyone

My Q is a pretty simple one

What is the best case for watercooling?

Hardware will be

Intel 980X

Asus rampage extreme 3

Dominator GT

2x 480 gtx u

I am a complete noob when it comes to watercooling so any advice on pumps,rads or even any good guides would be great.

Oh, I just want to WC the CPU and the gpus.

Thanks in advance =]

Yeah I was thinking of the 800D

Should I use two loops, one for CPU only and one for the two gpus?

Or would one big loop be better

Depends on your preference, if you like big cases then just go with whatever fits your eye the best.. some cases are drop-in water cooling, others will take some modding to get the radiators to fit.

Personally I wanted the smallest case available that would fit any graphics card and still have room for at least 2x 240mm radiators..
None fit the bill just right, so I made my own

And the 800d can fit two 560 rad in the bottom if you let them slightly stick out the back, plus a 480 up top and another single rad on the exhaust. The PSU can go where the hd enclosure is with the cables, and power cord extension, routed behind the tray.

I've slowly warmed up to the case and have abandoned my TJ07 & Black Pearl V2000 clone. I love the space and the possibilities it gives.

The tj07 is one of the best cases for wc.
