Looking for fitting case

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Right now my pc is installed in a Phanteks P400S (titanium) for a year. I'm looking for something new that improves airflow (400S is restricting), but can't really find something that suits me.

I'm using an ATX motherboard, Corsair 280mm H115i Pro and Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64 (310mm length). I'd like to put the radiator on top and get a case with some RGB lighting that I can control via Corsair iCue or Gigabytes RGB Fusion.

 

Currently looking at the Corsair iCue 465X, but this doesn't allow the 280mm radiator and fans on top, only the front. Any other suggestions?

Any of the Be Quiet! cases have plenty of room for rads, water cooling, etc, and come with 120 and 140mm fans


I have a Pure Base 600 (full size ATX mobo) with:
a 120mm & 140mm in the front,
a 120mm exhaust
and a 240mm radiator in the roof (roof can take 240, 280 or triple fan)

with a ton of room left over

I'm only using an EVGA CL-240 and these are my temps

You could go onto Phanteks website and purchase the mesh front panel for the P400. It's like 20 usd. It's what I did and didn't have to buy a new case. Thermals are beyond perfect now.

Was thinking the same, except that the P400A mesh panels are only available in black and white, while I've got the titanium gray P400S, bit afraid it won't suit the rest of the case colours

In that case, how about the P600S in Gray? Front Door is removable for more airflow, and you can keep the Phanteks build quality and aesthetics.

Alternatively the Fractal Design Define S2 comes in Gunmetal (they dont have a Meshify version sadly)

Looks great in specs as well. Comes with 3 fans, plenty of room for radiator and fans on top. You could even remove part of the front panel and top panel for increased airflow, while still keeping the looks. I don't think many cases allow this.
