Looking For White Case w/ Good Airflow

I’m looking for a white case with good airflow/cooling. Preferably with good vertical GPU mount support without killing the card. The specs are an RTX 3080 and i9-10900K. Looking for a mid tower design with support for an ATX motherboard. Plan on using a 240mm AIO for CPU. Probably would use 360mm, but support for that is harder to find. They also have very few white ones to begin with. I’d like to stick with Corsair for this one, but the only alternative I would accept would be an Asus one. I’ll link all necessary components that will influence case and referenced items below.

 

I’m currently considering the Corsair 4000D Airflow, but it doesn’t really support a vertical mount without hugging the glass side panel. The NZXT H710 is what I’d prefer due to aesthetics, but cooling is not the best.

 

There is a Lian Li case that I can’t seem to find the specific one that fits all the criteria (I think), I’m not sure how well it does on airflow. It’s just unnecessarily large and is more meant to be used for water cooling.

Thanks, I have seen this case but it is nice. If I remember correctly, that case has similar performance in terms of thermals as the 4000D. It has no support for vertically mounting GPU of any kind. I still prefer the 4000D over this. Although the support for vertical mounting in the 4000D seems to be at a heavy sacrifice to performance/thermals given how close it is to the glass panel.

oh it looked like it had a vertical gpu you problbly have to buy that sepritly.

 

imo vertical mounting the 30xx would mess with its air flow...

If you really want a vertical mounted GPU I would recommend getting a separate mount so you get better clearance from the side panel.

If your asking about the White Lian Li Lancool II Mesh.

They sell a separate GPU vertical mount. 

But I would recommend leaving it horizontal, and putting one or two case fans on the PSU shroud to shove more cool air at the GPU.

While I think you are technically correct. I do not believe it’s enough to notice a difference. Maybe a degree or two as long as it’s a decent case. And airflow/pressure is managed properly

Thanks, I’ll take that into consideration.

I’ll probably have to do something like this. I found a case, Thermaltake P3 I think is what it’s called. I like it, it checks all the boxes. I just don’t like how it’s not closed off whatsoever. If something happens to spill and/or get dropped onto it, it would cause much more damage than if the case was fully enclosed. It would be nice if it was at least covered on the top.
