Favourite water cooling case
 
I am thinking of going into the world of custom water cooling. Mostly for fun and to make my system even more quiet.

The 2 cases I really like are the NZXT Phantom 630 and the Caselabs Merlin SM8 Case. The Caselabs is pretty expensive especially going over the border so I am not sure I would want to fork over that much.

What are some other great water cooling cases? Oh and I would prefer to have options like 2 or more radiators.

You looking fore ATX cases.

I like my Little in Mini ITX Prodigy with 200 mm rad and 140 mm rad. one drain hole mod bottom of case. 5 1/4 is blocked by 200 mm rad with modding it could be fixed.

can fit duel 120 mm rad on top. with modding duel 140 mm rad on top.

Yeah looking for ATX cases. I would love to do a mini itx build but not for my main pc. I like to have options and 1 pcix slot is many options especially when I like good audio quality. USB sound cards are improving though so maybe one day.

IMO NZXT Switch 810 all the way. You can't beat that water cooling potential for the price.... but the aesthetics are subjective to the buyer :P.

Phantom 820 is nice but the price is not. Not too sure about the 630 as I haven't looked into it a ton but the Bitfenix SHinobi XL can fit a ton of radiator as well.

Fractal Arc Midi V2 Review - YouTube

I am really liking this case. It is a mid tower that supports 2 280 mm radiators and has better aesthetics than the NZXT 630.

Can't go wrong with fractal. Great build quality and amazing price.

maybe not the smartest choice but has a special kind of appeal for me: Silverstone FT-02 with a triple 180 rad at the bottom (RV-02 is fine too but rather the simpler fortress design)!

What fan spacing does it use for the radiators?

After Building 30+ water cooled systems now, MountainMods are by far the easiest to run multi rads watercooled loops.
