Hello all! I'm tied between the Corsair Crystal 570X White RGB or the Lian LI PC-001 Dynamic White. I understand they are different configurations, but which would be better? I like the way they both look, though here is the issue:

Corsair: Doesn't support a 360mm radiator at the top. Would putting it on the front intake cause the case to run hot? I see a lot of people putting a 360 radiator in the front, I was worried about thermals.

LI PC-001: Doesn't look as good and doesn't have the upgradability as the 570x.

Can I get your thoughts? Some pros and cons of both cases?

Edit: I will do future liquid cooling, but for the time sake, I will keep my aio.

 

Thanks,

 

Loch

Of course once you buy them.

You even have the plus to choose them!

As one fan from another may result in close to zero airflow.

Investing in case fans is very important and can have a huge difference.

well, i was specifically referring to the fact that it doesn't come with any, which is something to keep in mind

The majority do not come with fans and if they do, they are to be replaced.

except on very expensive high end cases, that still some fans are not included

The answer is always "Fractal Design".

😛

Then again you seem to have your heart set on a white TG case and the S2 Vision apparently isn't available in white.

 

 

The 360 rad in the front will increase the air temperature inside the case perhaps with 1 or 2 °C.  It won't really make a difference for the GPU and definitely not for the CPU.  So I wouldn't worry too much about that.

Radiator in front intake.

There's no intake at the front in a nzxt h500, itll choke/beg for fresh air. It has bad airflow generally

most importantly, unlike most fractal design cases, doesn't cost an arm and both legs

Wasn’t even aware of this to be honest. 

 

I remwmber that when I started looking at building a pc mid last year I was like, dafuck?! €100 for cases? (Thinking they only cost a 10ner 😂) have learned heaps since
