stuck between two cases
 
Looking for a case better for water cooling.

I have been looking at Silverstone Temjin TJ07 as I have two rads 360 and 240.

But then Fortress FT02 looks to be good with a 540 rad on the bottom.

I like how the powersupply is mounted on the TJ07 vs Corsairs Obsidian 800D.

I will be running 3 gpu's and cooling the cpu and no overclocking.

I'd say the the temjin. Seems like the better case of the 2 and more mods for it as well

Its realy your call, TJ07 has 180 deg mouting, ft02 has 90deg.
FT02 wins hards down for cooling, triple 180 is more cooling area then 360 + 240 rads but you lack the selection thus your single rad might not be as efficient as the 2 other ones.

Fortress for the bottom fans for your SLI,always heat at the heatpipes side of the cards,will blow it up to the top back fan..

I found a FT02 at memory express for $169.00. Best I could find is a white TJ07 $269.00 with $40.00 MIR at ncix. Save on shipping I guess.

That's a Silver TJ07, they don't make white. And that FT02 on sale doesn't have a window, not sure if that matters to you.

I've had a TJ07 for over 2 years, recently moved into a RV02 with a 3x180 Magicool rad. The TJ07 is a beautiful case with classic lines, and there's some nice mod parts available for it. Check coldzero.eu, he's a sponsor of mattlef's TJ07 build.

Yes, silver not white. I did pick up the FT02 today locally. No window. I do not look at the case where it is now anyways. I am running a single 360 rad in a Cosmos S and temps are good. Looking at this case, there is rad mounts included. I may just mount the 360 vs removing the hard drive cage to fit a 540 rad.

Wasting your time and money... Why run water if you don't plan to OC?
