New case time? Help me find one that fits..

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

So hopefully someone can help me out. I have reached a dilemma with my current build. I am using an OEM case and sadly it doesnt have enough HDD bays for the way i work and kit i have.

I have 1x 2.5 ssd and 5x 1tb HDD. I also have an R9 290X in my build.

I have been looking around and found a case i like (plain boring and non RGB with no glass.) the Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 (Linky)

But i am worried that my GPU won't fit as it seems to be quite long. Can anyone confirm if this is right or recomend another MATX case that would be able to have lots of HDD and the GPU??

the other one that seems to come closest is the Fractal R4 but that is an ATX case. Yes i know that my MATX board will fit but dont like the big gap below the mobo.

Not a fan of the cube cases.

What is the exact model of your R9 290x ?

There's a high chance it wont fit as the case maximum acceptable card length with all of the drive bays attached is 265mm, your card is 287 mm in length. Without the drive bays its no problem but i guess that defeats the purpose. 

 

Btw have you considered buying a USB 3.0 hdd dock for instance ? (since you seem pleased with your current case) Your going to run out of spaces for HDD's in that build as well eventually... Which might make it better to just get a dock station for cheap and quick data saving.

 

PS: it will fit however in the Fractal define R4 case if your wondering.

Just had a brain wave... Should i perhaps pull two drives out of my nas (currently 4x 2tb drives) and use them inside my PC 

That could save the working space problem and with a dock you could just save afterwards data that its mainly meant for archiving purposes, and with time get again higher capacity drives for your NAS, i dunno the prices there but with the prices in my country with the money it takes to buy a fractal design R4 case you could get a docking station and at least a 2Tb HDD drive...

Silverstone - PS07 has 5 3.5" drive cages, a 2.5" drive bay and 2 5.5" drive bay, should be just enough (or the SSD just runs without screwing it down).

 

Otherwise the Fractal 804... is more like a cube unless you have it stand face-down (front panel facing down).


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

would the nas run with just the 2 drives?

Why wouldn't it run ? Unless there's some kind of raid setup.
