Hi, As some of you will know, i am MaKaVeLis partner. He has been looking at getting the Kandalf LCS but has decided that the £160 to be spent on a case with built in water cooling could be better spent on a case and seperate WC.<br />
<br />
So he has decided that he wants to try a clear acrylic case but desperately wants it to be a full tower like the size of the kandalf or armor. Then, spend whatever money is left over on the WC.<br />
<br />
So, could you guys please help me to find a BIG clear acrylic case for him <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Thankyou<br />
<br />

Look for this brand of acrylic cases, even though this one is out of stock. They all might be, but you may find them in the right spot.<br />

thankyou aswell, but they are ones i was looking at earlier....they arent big cases.<br />
<br />
He needs quite a lot of space and we have a standard size case atm, but it is too small... so it must be a full tower <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Rep+ anyway for the effort <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

</div>I would say get a normal Armor then get custom WC <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
You can buy rads the fit in the front bays because thats where my dual heatercore is <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> note that i dont think all heatercores fit in the bays.

Yeah but that would cost more....<br />
<br />
Armors are about £100 and you wouldn't be able to get a custom WC setup for less than £50...<br />
<br />
The reason for doing this is so that it works out cheaper than getting the £160 Kandalf LCS, which comes with built in WC.<br />
<br />
I don't thing this is looking to promising... If you know of any cheap full tower cases, could you please link me <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

What about using a regular mid-tower Acrylic case and just making a radiator box to put under it? You could even make your own acrylic one if you got the right parts.<br />
<br />
edit* <br />
<br />
I actually had mine water cooled. I took an aluminum L channel piece and cut it so it fit the height of the back of the case. I mounted the radiator back there and fit the rest inside with two water cooled video cards. The space was cramped, but it can be done. If I had to do it again, I'd make a radiator box to put under it and cut a couple holes. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Acrylic cases provide no EM shielding at all, while the usual aluminium cases provide a bit... its not usually a problem, computers arn't that sensetive. But if you are in a particually noisy enviroment or are working with professional-grade audio, you might need to give that some consideration.

You could build your own acryllic case. Thats what I have done for 2 builds.<br>
One of them is water tight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
