Experience with danger den double wide Tower
 
Hi,

In my semi-permanent search for an SR-2 case with the capacity to hold the SR-2 and my 2 GTX480 + my watercooling gear. It would be, 2 X 360 RAD or 1 X 480 RAD + 1 X 240 RAD. Anyway, the case looks like it would work. Seems like their is place for 2 X 360 RAD, plus some fan controlers.

But I dont have anyone withe direct knowledge of the case or the shipping from Danger Den. So I am wondering if anyone has any input on it.

No experience here with the case nor with DD's shipping, but damn that case looks fine.

Quad + triple rads (quad up front, triple out back) should work, allowing ample space for the SR2 in the left chamber. PSU up top side left.

ps. thanks... ;)

$440 on a case? No thank you. Especially one that is made out of acrylic. Although honestly I can't find any other SR-2 cases that are watercooling friendly besides Mountain Mods, which I do not like in the slightest either.

EDIT: MM cube cases that is, their Pinacle 24 is pretty slick. Should even have enough for two 3x120mm radiators. Plus it about $160 cheaper than the Danger Den one you are looking at.

yeah price is no good, but it ssems to be the only option with mountain mods ascension. I looked at the Pinnacle 24, look at the video on the front page. The position of the PSU and the drive bay make it look like I cant put two rads in there.

regarding the pinnacle, we will get 1st hand experience ! Looks like 3 X120 + 2 X 120 is possible in there.

yeah, to expensive by far. I took a look at a couple of build on Failbook. REeally nice looking... 3 X 480 Radiators in there...

Have you thought about modifying a 700d/800d w/ a mountain mods tray?

matsta31 January 23, 2011 12:15 PM

I dont like my cutting skills + becasue of my GTX 480s, I would need an external Radiator.. wich I want to try to avoid for now.

I found another option, wich looks nice in my mind. I like the fact that is is a full window for the mobo :
