Case Question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am looking for help finding a case for a build I am putting together. I would like to use the H150i cooler, on a top mount, and the MSI - GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB DUKE Video Card. Therefore I need a case that has good airflow using the top mount, and can fit the GPU. Any suggestions, I prefer a darker colour scheme and a side glass panel if possible.

 

Thanks!


EDIT **ATX form factor**

Meshify C is a great case for looks and airflow.

Doesnt the case top hurt top mounted rad performance? also i think it has compatability issues with the GPU.

not sure what you mean there because top mounting it is what you asked for, but I can tell you that the Meshify C is doesn't have enough length to hold 360mm up there nor the height for fitting any most radiators out there. At least the most common one from Asetek doesn't, as I know NZXT X62 doesn't fit.

 

Cooler Master H500 with mesh front will be my pick

I believe that Gamersnexus said that the top wouldnt be a good place in that case, as there isnt enough opening on the top.

I was looking at that - if that were the route to go, I would need to get some case fans i believe. Any recommendations?

Bling (RGB) or no bling? Here's a nice build in that case, but I would make the AIO the top intake, put 3 fans on the bottom as intakes to supply fresh air to the GPU, and make the side fans the exhaust.

The Mastercase H500 only supports a 240 rad in the top, the H500P Mesh introduces the 360mm top compatibility. 

 

@FeaR418 look into the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG

Either or are fine, just keep the costs reasonable! 

Edit ** Those Corsair fans look cool, they're on the pricier side tho **

I think the slots are 120's/140's. At the most economical, some Arctic F14's (+/- PST)

Next maybe Noctua Redux or BeQuiet Pure Wings 2.

I think I saw some Corsairs on sale. Are you in the USA?
