Are parts gonna look small and ugly in this case?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have two options and havent 100% decided yet but i like big cases so my two options are Lian Li PC-V3000WX (probably gonna go with Lian Li it seems so far) and Phanteks Enthoo 719

 

I like the look on both but currently im leaning towards PC-V3000WX because it kind of looks cleaner and drawback with phanteks is that Hard drives (i have 2 SSD and 2 HDD) can be mounted only in two places, either in the front when not using water cooler but i plan to put water cooler so i want to put radiator in the front (360mm) so the onlyy other option for HDD on phanteks is mounting HDDs in front of vertical PSU shroud but that makes them really visible and not so pretty so Lian Li is probably way to go

 

Since im probably gonna get Lian Li can someone who has experience tell me if this parts are gonna look small and ugly with too much empty space around them in that case

Parts are:

Msi z490 ACE mobo

I9 10900K

4x 16GB gskill tridentz RGB

probably corsair h150i pro 360mm AIO

two evga rtx 2080 TI in nvlink with water cooling custom loop with soft tubing, transparent tubes but not colored coolant cause im afraid of clogging and its my first time im gonna try custom loop at least for GPUs

Asus essence STX II 7.1 sound card

Corsair 1600W PSU (btw, is that too much for this build)

and bunch of probably corsair fans on cpu AIO and GPUs custom loop radiator and some more fans to fill up all empty fan holes in case and probably a corsair LED strip

 

What do you think, are parts gonna look small in that huge lian li case and have too much empty space making it ugly?

 

Also since i havent yet decided i want to hear what do you think, Lian Li PC-V3000WX or Phanteks Enthoo 719?

 

Thanks in advance

honestly with that much hardware especially with the amount of rgb and aestetichly cool pieces you will have i dont think it will look bad at all.  also personally i like the phanteks case better, but with aestetich choices like this it all depends on your preferences and modularity and compatibility with your current parts and maybe some upgrades down the line.

My upgrade pan is to maybe one day replace soft tubing with hard tubing for gpus when i feel more comfortble with working with watercooling and also maybe replace CPU AIO too with custom loop down the line.

 

I agree there are some aspects where phanteks look better but the issue with HDD mounting and not being able to hide them anywhere in Phanteks case really sticks out as a big drawback to me which is unfortunate cause phanteks looks really good too

Not sure about the parts but they call this

"massive" storage? 

 

even my old and boring $60 case has more bays than that probably $1000 case. come on.

 

The phanteks looks better imo, I'm not going to spend $1000 on a case but still, it looks better.

You could always insert HDDs to make it look less empty. xD

Considering that im data hoarder and i managed to fill up every single device that has any sort of storage i might as well do that LOL :)

My drives are 3.5 and as it says in picture its only in main chamber for 3.5, i looked at few reviews and for 3.5 there are only two options, in the main chamber instade of radiator (meaning i cant put one 360mm rad for cpu and one for gpus) or next to PSU shroud also in main chamber of the case, i will try to find the video where ive seen this

Here is the review where its shown the two places where 3.5 HDDs can go at about 7:39

On the front where i plan to put one of radiators and on the bottom in front of PSU shroud but that doesnt look really nice :(
