Suggested case for SLI gpu/hardline cooling...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am looking for the best case to build a dual gpu hardline cooled pc.  I’m interested in the Lian Li ROG WGX v2, but it’s not out yet.  So I am left looking at what’s currently available.  What are some of the best cases for hardline dual gpu builds?

Any case can do that. 


Need to decide on how much radiator space you can fit. Wanting to cool two cards and a cpu and full power. 


Then the things you want , narrow or wide footprint, tall, glass and storage limitations. 

Main RIg Corsair Air 540, I7 8700k, ASUS ROG Strix Z370-H, G.Skill TridentZ 16GB, EVGA 1080TI SC Black, EVGA 850 GQ, Acer xG270HU 2560x1440@144hz


Spare RIg Corsair Air 540, I7 4770K, Asus Maximus VI Extreme, G.Skill Ares 32Gb, EVGA 1080sc & 1060 SSC, Corsair CX850M, Acer KG251Q 1920x1080@240hz

Assuming the style fits your preference, many of us (myself included in the link in my sig), have found the Define series of cases from fractal (particularly the S(2)) to be fantastic midtower cases to build hardline dual gpu pc's in. I'm using a 280 (45mm) and 420 (30mm) rad to cool 2 980tis and a 5820k all super overclocked. That load is as much as basically any you would see these days, so it gives you a bit of an idea of how much radiator space you need/want.


The Define R6 and S2 have full panel tempered glass if that's your thing compared to the only 'large window' Define R5/S I used.
