Mini-ITX Case suggestions for water cooling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

I want to build a Mini-ITX for university this year, I'm trying to find a case that allows me to have a full-size GPU and a proper water cooled CPU cooler.

I am also trying to avoid any large boxy cases.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Cheers,

Ryth

What Size CPU cooler, and your budget/location?

There are none because of size restrictions, those cases are almost as big as normal µATX Towers or something like that.

 

A compact case would be for example this:

And due to the Boards, you can't (and shouldn't!) overclock anyway!!

 

I personaly have two ITX Systems, one office/IGP wich is really small and one not so small Silverstone RVZ-01, wich I think is rather big...

 

 

And with that space you could fit at best something like a Noctua NH-L12 or similar. Though I'd personally would go with Heatsinks that have 25mm thick fans...
