Best case for watercooling

Dreaper
 Share

These aren't the best cases for hardline...

Personally, Either spend more on the case for a larger and nicer one, or go with the P400s

First and foremost i know for a fact that inwin and Evolv have terrible airflow, also size is a limit so i can only go with Full/Mid towers no super towers :)

Ok. I've heard bad things with evolv airflow as well, but none from the twin case.

If you want airflow:

Personally, I believe you should go with what you are most comfortable working with and what you want aesthetically wise. Its up to you. I am only giving you some more ideas.

the Define C is really nice, as long as you dont decide to do it like i did and slap a 360mm rad in the front like i did

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

well, you can look at the Northern Bee log in my signature, space runs out to mount pump and res, you cant have any 3.5" drives and when you can have a 280mm rad it just seems like a much better option

Ok, as long as it has decent Rad and res support + airflow and then your fine.

I would normally also go with Define C TG, but the Enthoo is longer so you can A, do push/pull front mounted or B, do push or pull top mounted

 

Technically there's also the H700i, but I'd wait until they drop the smart hub before recommending it, since that drives the price unreasonably high

Yea i was advised against the Define C because its my first time hardline and its a harder case to do it in, would do Define S but no TG :(

So you think the Enthoo Pro M TG is the best for TG Watercooling?

I'd say it's a pretty good platform to start with!

I mean it will be a good case to get you into it. You're not going crazy with six 420mm rads or anything

SE is the special edition. It comes with a White interior instead of black, and includes Phanteks New HALO RGB fan grills which are Asus Aura Compatible (they can go onto any fan so they're not proprietary in either software or hardware!)

AFAIK it's not dimmed like the Meshify C, should be mostly clear
