    Default Recommended Cases for Watercooling

    Thought I'd start a list for people to input their thoughts on recommended cases for watercooling. Certainly there are some great cases out there that are better suited than others, so here's a beginner's list of some that I think would work.

    Please add your suggestions to the list!!!!



    RECOMMENDED WATERCOOLING CASES:

    Silverstone Temjin TJ-07
    Spacious, sexy and sleek, has a separate lower chamber that is absolutely ideal for a triple rad, has excellent ventilation for the rads. An absolute classic for water cooling.
    http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...=tj07&area=usa

    Silverstone Temjin TJ-09/TJ-10
    Spacious, sexy and sleek, no separate lower chamber, but can easily internally fit a 240mm rad without any modding at all.
    http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...=tj09&area=usa

    Silverstone Raven RV01
    Unique internal layout is rotated 90 degrees and can result in some innovative loops that can fit a 240mm rad.
    http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...=FT02&area=usa

    Thermaltake Armor or Kandalf
    More flashy than the above cases, not traditionally known as a watercooling case, although it has alot of space to fit a custom waterkit. Nice for people looking to build a watercooling gaming rig
    http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C.../va8000bws.asp

    Mountain UFO
    For those who are looking for a very unique case, this cubeform case is spacious and well-suited for watercooling. Is very flashy....nothing subtle about these cases
    http://www.mountainmods.com/computer...8et5mlmgtl51r5

    Antec 1200
    Huge case, lots of space, very distinct look.
    http://www.antec.com/us/productDetai...?ProdID=15120#

    Lian Li V-2010
    Great looks, separate lower chamber although it's divided which might mean a bit of modding (unlike the TJ-07 above), full-sized tower
    http://www.lian-li.com/product/produ...index=6&type=b

    Lian-Li Armorsuit PC-P80
    Basically a GOD of a rig for watercooling, with so much room to spare in there and also a very easy user friendly case.
    http://lian-li.com/v2/en/product/pro...s_index=61&g=f

    Lian-Li PC-A71, A77
    Great airflow in the case, many options of were to place the fans, and quite spacious to house more than one rad if you need the option.
    http://lian-li.com/v2/en/product/pro...s_index=61&g=q

    Cooler Master Cosmo S
    Good case for watercooling, tubing holes are on top, PSU is in a BTX format, and honestly its big enough for anything you throw at it (maybe not Water Chilling) but big enough for any watercooling setup.
    http://www.coolermaster.com/products...ate=17&id=3947

    Coolermaster Stacker 830/832
    Nice blend of traditional and modern style, spacious, popular gaming case. Might require some modding to fit large internal rad, good for adding some flashy elements in your case
    http://www.coolermaster.com/products...ate=168&id=174

    Cooler Master HAF 932
    Spacious, good air flow, water cooling ready at top 230mm fan, it's compatible with 240mm rad for internal setup, has predrilled holes. Successor to the Stacker in many ways, and many would agree superior in terms of features and water cooling abilities.
    http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2810

    Cooler Master HAF 922
    Spacious, good air flow, water cooling ready at top, one of the only mid-tower cases that is truly compatible with 240mm rad INTERNAL without modding. Essentially a smaller version of the full-tower 922.
    http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2919

    Cooler Master HAF-X
    Successor to the CM 932 in most respects, takes a great layout and design and adds even more modern features. And for the price, it's a killer deal, although the aesthetics are a bit "industrial", not as sleek as SilverStone or Lian Li.
    http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/prod...roduct_id=2988

    Cooler Master ATCS 840
    Slick traditional aluminum full tower, one of the few cases that can fit a 360mm rad internal without modding since the brackets and holes are included. A single 120mm rad will also fit at bottom 120mm vent or second 240mm with a little modding involved by cutting HDD caddy and another 120mm vent hole.
    http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?category_id=18&product_id=2870

    Corsair Obsidian 800D
    Gorgeous minimalist black-on-black case with tons of cable management features. Can internally fit extensive water cooling setup with a huge interior space. Isolated cooling zones and hot-swap drive bays further add to the possibilities for enthusiasts.

    I own the P80 and i am ordering the PC -A77 on monday unless i find something better. The NZXT Khaos has a strange shape but its cooling set up is very nice, but its also very expensive. Lian Li will be releasing 5-6 new cases this month with new designs. The DVD and floppys are now on both sides of some of the new cases. Here are a few of them that are not listed

    TYR PC-X2000 / PC-V2010 / PC-V2110 / PC-A7010 / PC-A7110

    Wow, the PC-A77B is NICE! Never tried too hard at the Lian-Li site before today so I just found all the good pictures. You can buy replacement tops that come pre-cut for water cooling radiator (2x120mm). I couldn't find a retailer for it though, do you know any in US?

    The hot swap SATA board in the 7000 series is intriguing. Have you had any experience with it? If so, how do you like it? It says RAID capable, do you think it is any better than ASUS built in version on Maximus and other mobos?

    Yes, my Lian-Li A71 also has an optional top case cover that's precut for a 240mm rad as well. Very nice.

    Finding it, however, for the 7x series is VERY difficult. It may be a special order. If you're serious about it, lemme know and I can ask Xoxide if they are able to obtain it.

    I'm not going H2O until my next rig, the wifey is at wits end with the time I spend here already.:rolleyes: I was just curious, spending $600-800 on new case and water cooling might push her off the deep end right now. When Bloomfield and Nahalem come out I'll see what I can find and may ask for help then, thanks for the offer

    Almost ALL new cases are 120mm. However, I've seen more cases using holes for 120mm and also 140mm now as well. I don't know of any 140mm rad holes though, maybe Deton has.

    no I haven't seen any rad for 140mm fan yet. I'm not sure if they're going to make them. It will be to clunky and hard to work with. You might just use car radiators.

    Even with Thermochill and Feser rads are big/thick enough not to fit into some cases all ready.

    I think with the new cases that have 140mm fan holes to give you the option to use bigger fan for better air cooling and quiter.
    As you all know; bigger fan can move more air at lower rpm as smaller fan at high rpm. That is why case maker start leanning torward to 140mm fan. Remember the olden days, cases hardly have any fan or only 60mm, then move to 80mm, 120mm. Now they are on the way to 140mm, lol. They are getting bigger, bigger every day.

    I'd recommend the NZXT Tempest as a great watercooling case. It has place to mount a radiator and tubes at the back for water cooling tubes. It's also a great all round case. You can see it at:
