Reasonably priced case for these rads?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Anyone know a case ~$300, that can take a 280mm, Alphacool XT45 (push only) in the front and a 420mm Alphacool XT45 (push only) in the top.

I'm a fan of Fractal Design and Phanteks cases if that helps the recommendation.

 

GPU would be a Asus 1080 ti STRIX w/ EKWB full cover block

PSU would be a EVGA 750w G3

The Phanteks Enthoo Luxe should do the trick. Just kidding it only fits 240mm in the front.

From those two brands, The Define R6 should fit the 420 in the top as long as you're using low profile RAM and you're using either a full CPU+VRM block or low profile VRM heat sinks. The upcoming Evolv X also would hold all of that, but I would hold off until we get a thermals review, as the original Evolv ATX case was terrible for airflow.

The Phanteks Enthoo Luxe fits within those options.

The so the R6 only holds a the 420mm, not the 280 in the front. Also, why is using a full CPU+VRM block of importance? 

 

I forgot about the Evolv series, hopefully it'll be good this time around!

The 420 would go at the top, the 280 at the front.

 

The block is only somewhat important if your Motherboard has especially tall heat sinks on the VRMs. Most boards shouldnt have an issue, but some high end boards might use super beefy heatsinks. Good for VRM's, bad for top mounted 140mm variant rads.

Quote

there mustn't be anything higher than 36mm on the Motherboard in the respective area.
