upgrade form antec 300
i know a lot of you know much more about case than me... so that why i ask the question..
First, that my hardware
i7 920 stock hs(back to stock for now)
evga gtx260 55nm
samsung dvd burner
wd caviar black 640 x1 now (i think i will upgrade to 3 soon)
antec 300 moded
mod to the 300:
removing the hd holder
add lian li hd holder il drive bay
hole for cable management
hole to remove water block without removing the mobo
add 2 120mm yateloon on front(1350rpm)
and noctua p12 on side(1300rpm)
bolt antec tricool are at low
The problem: I hate this case, it sound like washroom, i remove all my water cooling stuff to have a quiter case(mcp350 is too loud for me), i still way to buy a noctua 1366se edition(back order on ncix) but i think i need a bether case
Than was my option for the moment
1: Zoob have an mountain mod twice7 for sale in her FS thread(for a long time i want to try a mountain mod), but i have 2 question about this case, anyone know if tower style hs will fit in this case? does mountain mod are quite?(with the right fan)
2: Lian li pc-A05NB, i can find a BNIB one for 90$ on egg, but the only thing i know about this case is i need to mod the top to have bether airflow
3: Another option?
What i want:
with a windows is bether, but i can mod it
can fit tower style HS or 120.2 rad
you have a question to help me more? feel free to post in the thread
forgot to say, my last case was an HAF 932, i change it because of size and buy the 300 to have a cheap case:whistle:
Thanks for your reply joe, but no one have any experience with the mountain mod or lian li?
A friend of mine runs the Lian-Li (PC-A05NB) and he gave up on water cooling it since it's an extremely tight working space and isn't very resevoir friendly.
Sorry I don't deal with mini cases very much, so I don't have a lot of suggestions for you; although I'd personally be leaning towards the Mountain Mod. They have a great reputation for a reason...
Those are some choices, but it's really user discretion on case selection. Look for what you like and then buy it.
