Case Recommendation, Please


Recommended Posts

Premium Gold

I plan on starting a dedicated Folding @ Home pc build within the next few months.  My biggest struggle, aside from finding any reasonable priced gpus, is finding a decent case.  I will be using a custom loop on this build,  I plan on having 2 x 360mm radiators.  Can anyone suggest a case that will accommodate the radiators that I plan on using, and is enjoyable to work in? Thanks in advance

budget? 

 

Meshify 2 (or the S2, but the 2 is newer and marginally better). 

Be Quiet! Pure Base 600

Lian Li PC-O11

 

 

I'm planning on a high budget for this one....wish Caselabs was still around.  Thanks for these suggestions, I'll check them out.

I enjoy my Thermaltake Core x71, have a 420 up front and a 360 on the bottom side.

 

PSU at the bottom too

For as much as this is a great fit for what I'm looking for, I cannot support this company just on principle.  Please don't take that as a criticism on your pick though.  Thanks for the reply.

I'm a big Fractal Design fan, but I doubt I would try to fit 2 360 rads in my S2.

In my Define 7XL I've got a 420x45 and a 280x45 rad with push/pull fans, and even in a big case like that it's a tight fit. Dual 360 rads would work good in there, with enough clearance for memory. One thing I like too, the dust filters keep the system pretty clean! I try to clean them once every 2 weeks on a system that runs 24/7, easy to do and no dust on my rads.

 Dust filtration will be huge, I also plan to run this 24/7.  Great info, thank you
