Case for Triple Radiator
 
Hello,
I will be buying an XSPC RS360 water cooling kit very soon and i want to know what cases there are that will be able to fit this radiator with no problems at all. Preferrablyaround $150 USD if possible. Thanks!

i do believe the SS RV-02E has room enough to mount a triple on the bottom side under the 3 180 mm fans. plumbing grommets are already built into the case for WC as well

I have used the Coolermaster HAF 932 and Corsair 800D with internal triple rads with 6 fans attached. Also the ATCS 840.

You might find the HAF cases more within your budget.

What would be the cheapest case for a triple 120mm rad?

Cheap and watercooling are at opposite ends of the spectrum. If you are looking for an internal mount, it pretty much means a full tower.

If your budget is that tight, almost any case will do if you go to an external mount with a rad box.

Very true,

Cheapest I would go with WC internal is the HAF932.

Can't beat the big black monolith (700/800D) :)

I was thinking of the Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 for an internal triple rad, would that fit?

Have you seen any references or build logs that show a radiator going into one? It claims to be water cooling ready, but that could just be refering to tubing holes on the back panel......

It's pretty hard to tell from the information provided on that page. Unless you're a seasoned WC/Modding tech, I'd strongly suggest sticking with something that's been tried and true....
