As the title states, I'm looking for a new case for the build I'm gonna put together in about a month. Definitely needs to be full tower, would prefer it to have enough room to fully house a liquid cooling loop for cpu and 3 gpu's. I'm in the US, in case that makes any difference in case availability.

Hi there,

Have a looksie at the Coolermaster Atcs 840 or the cosmos s or the haf x or the nzxt phantom. Even look at some of the silverstone cases like the raven or the ft02 or even lian li. Honestly, there are a lot of choices it depends on u whether u want to go watercooling or wanna mod the case etc.

I already have a raven, what I'm looking for is a case capable of housing a 360 radiator internally.

Look at the Cooler Master HAF X, it's a massive case and will easily take a internal rad.

Just got mine the other day and it's amazing!

I was actually looking very closely at the HAF X. Could you possibly take a few good pictures of the inside of the case? Preferably the top? What I'm wanting is a case that requires as little modding as possible to stuff a radiator in it. So far all I've found is the 800D and the Lian Li PCA 77

A 360 rad will not be not be able to keep a CPU and 3 GPUs cool. You would need more radiator to cool 3 GPUs.

However look at the Haf X or the Cooler master Atcs 840 they are both real nice cases for water-cooling.

Sure, well it's not much to look as I'm waiting for my PSU, MB and CPU still .

For me the water cooling pipe exits are great for holding the case lighting switch, perfect fit .

The cosmos S can hold two 360's with a little mod to the hdd cage and also it even looks sexy (i have one)

Thank you a million for the pictures! Very helpful, although it doesn't look like the braces in the top are meant to hold a 360? Am I seeing that right? Is the other set of holes above the 5.25 inch bays?

NP mate..

I'm not experienced with water cooling, let me try and find a 360 rad size while I wait for you to reply.

Got a tape measure here

Edit:

Ok 400mm will fit it's just the case of which holes go where .

Picture shows 400mm from the first screw holes which look like they're for a rad.

Tape measure isn't very accurate.
