Suggestions on a case for mini itx case for watercooling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I have been searching for a Mini ITX  case that can accomodate a 240mm rad, and maybe also one of those new flat reservoirs from ekwb (preferrably also a 240mm one, if not, a 120mm one will do).

I already looked these cases Raijintek Ophion Evo, Raijintek Ophion M Evo, Corsair crystal 280x, Phanteks Evolv Shift / Shift Air (this one cant accomodate most of the gear i want, without modifications to the chassis), Silverstone LD03/LD03B.

I am planning on using an Asus rog strix Z390-i Motherboard, and a MSI 1660ti Gaming X, and later on upgrading to a 2080/2080ti with custom watercooling. 

I find the raijintek Ophion M Evo to be my best option, but suggestions are always welcome.

 

Thanks in advance for any help/feedback provided.

Most of these cases are mATX. Is that because you're making sure it has enough room for watercooling in the future?

Yes, it is. I want to make it as "portable" as possible, while allowing it to be watercooled. I plan on doing a full EKWB quantum build with their new rectanguçar/square pump+reservoir combo units in the future. Meanwhile I am going with the h100i AIO I currently own.

Assuming you want to custom watercool both your CPU and GPU, you'll probably want two 240mm rads, as one 2080ti is enough to saturate a 240mm RAD in some overclocking cases. 

 

The Silverrstone RL0* is inverted, but can hold dual 240mm rads (or a 2870 at the front) and is relatively compact.

A more traditional aloyout would the MEshify C Mini
