White Watercooling full tower case suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've just ordered all the internal components for My new PC, an 2950X on a MSI MEG CREATION and 2 1080Tis, but now I need to find a case with watercooling options because I want this to be my first watercooling build. The problem is I can't plan a loop without a case because I won't know what I can fit and where. Here's my PCPP: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Pyrii/saved/NVrV6h

 

My initial selection was the Phanteks Primo in white, but I'm not entirely happy with the case. I would like the option to side-mount.

 

I wanted to try and go for an all-white theme build with the water colour being the contrast so white/silver as much as possible. I realise that some modding may have to be done, but having an already-white case would save a LOT of work since I'm disabled and painting an entire case is not a job I want for my first attempt at modding.

 

I've used the Fractal R3 and R5 in white till now, but I'm disappointing by the R6, nor do I think it has the space I need for my build.

 

Sadly with Case Labs out of business I can't go for a custom case, I've tried a couple of custom case companies in the UK but they only do server rackmount chassis.

 

So in short:

  • White outside and inside with clean look (I'm not a fan of the "Gamer" Aesthetic on everything lately with logos plastered everywhere)
  • Room for triple RAD in front and top.
  • Clear side window (The phanteks ones are strongly tinted which would mean replacing them :/
  • Mounts for watercooling cylinder res, and separate pump, fill and drain ports a bonus so I don't have to drill my own.
  • UK/EU supplier

I've always been a fan of the Corsair 760T. It's huge, comes in white, and has full side panel swinging doors

It's a nice looking case, but the white is only panelling and it only supports a pair of up to 280 rads

PC-O11, room for three 360mm rads

You might be limited to top and side RAD, I'm not sure if the bottom rad will fit in a dual GPU config (though it looks like it would)
