Looking for portable case

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey!

 

I am looking for a portable pc case. I do have a few requirements though and I shall list them.

 

Needs space for a watercooled CPU (240mm likely)

Space for watercooled GPU (120mm)

2 x 3.5" HDD bays

1x 2.5" SSD Bay

 

Beyond that, it doesn't matter to much. Looks aren't *that* important to me.

 

This build will incorporate a Ryzen 7 CPU (1700 or 1700X) and a EVGA GTX 1080 TI Hybrid. Thanks!

Wish I could recommend the Corsair 380T but it's been discontinued :(

 

You could look at the Fractal Design Define Nano S

NZXT Manta mate

or the Bitfenix Pandora but water cooling will be extremly difficult

Should've said this earlier but kinda and looking for something that is horizontal and a bit slimmer than the nano S

Would the Evolv Shift work?It has a very small footprint

Manta's airflow is better simply because it has more open space and it's like a 20 dollar diffrence

Bitfenix prodigy, watercooling can be a bit tough, but has been done in it before. It has handles too.

Sorry again. Another oversight on my part. I am using AIO cooling solutions. I have a 1080 TI hybrid as is and will probably just use a corsair or what have you for CPU

What is your budget? If budget is not a question, you might wanna take a look at a case labs solution: http://www.caselabs-store.com/bullet-bh2-mitx-case-customizable/

I have suggested lian-li cases in the past, some people like them, some people dont. If I had to pick a portable case it would be the TU300
