Liquid cooling ATX Mid/Full tower.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Greetings.

 

I'm currently browsing the market for some of the better cases compatible with liquid cooling. I'm currently using a Mastercase Pro 5 which, while usable, is a bit lacking. While searching, I figured I would ask this community what their thoughts are on the subject. 

 

My requirements:

  1. ~$100-250.
  2. Vertical GPU mount.
  3. Tempered glass side panel. 
  4. Support for either a 120mm/240mm/360mm radiator setup OR a 120mm/240mm/240mm setup.
  5. Basement for the power supply or a power supply shroud.
  6. ATX Mid or Full tower.
  7. Able to hold two 2.5" drives and two 3.5" drives.
  8. *Optional: Comes in white.

 

Any help finding something like this would be greatly appreciated.

Honestly? I would knock the Vertical GPU mount. Sure it looks great but it's not worth the performance hit that you take from having almost no room between the glass and the card

Isn't that air cooled performance? 

Yes, this is air cooled. If you're going water though, this is a great option!

 

The problem right now is that most of the cases I can think of check all but one box off your list, for example. The thermaletake 31 series (core/supressor/view) all have vertical GPU mounts but dont have basements... 

 

The Mastercase 5T is a bit overpriced, but it would work otherwise

Basically, I'm looking for a Magnum SM8, only with a basement like the mastercase 5. Not the Merlin because it doesn't come with a shroud, although I could probably make one out of acrylic.
