Default Water Cooling Case

Hey guys,

ATM I'm looking for a case that I will use in a build I'm doing for a buddy. I am looking for something that I could easily mount a rad internally....I don't want to mount the rad on the back (I am using the swiftech h20-220 kit)

Some cases that my friend likes are: (preferably something with a window)
-coolermaster haf 932
-antec 1200
-thermaltake spedo advanced
-coolermaster cosmos (buy extra windowed panel)
-coolermaster cosmos s

any suggestions.....


thanks for any help

Personally I think the nicest one out is the ATCS 840. Its a good price at newegg.ca

I was torn between HAF and Cosmos S. I've got HAF - excellent case, perfect for watercooling. But next build will be Cosmos - too sexy to resist.

I'm in just the opposite boat... I love my Cosmos-S, but wouldn't mind a chance to try out a HAF on my next big build. If money isn't an object, there's a thread around here that mentions a new aluminum version of the HAF... might be worth looking into. :)

I wish they make HAF with glass door, so I can observe my treasuries!

I'm also not that hot on Antec1200, I have 900, pretty much the same. This thing is dust magnet!

daz I understand....

I love the haf but hate the fact that there isnt a full windowed side panel
the reason I like the antec 1200.....

I also was thinking of the silverstone raven but the cosmos with a replacement windowed panel would be epic imo

+1 for the HAF. Mounting a 220 rad in that thing was SO easy, routing tubing (I used 1/2" ID tubing) was easy too. Oh, and it was my first watercooling job ever as well. So much space.
