Default Best Water Cooled Case For Workstation 1-2 GPU Max

This is my current parts build:

I7-2700k CPU
Asus Maximus IV LGA 1155 Z68
G Skill Ripjaws X Series 16 GB DDR3 2133
Crucial M4 256gb (Main) 2 x 1TB 7200RPM WD Drives (Storage)
1 x Quadro 5000 GPU
Silver stone 1500 W PSU

I was looking at the SilverStone TJ11 case but it seems quite like overkill since im only gonna have 2 GPU's

plz help me with any suggestions

The TJ07, 800D or even yes, the TJ11 will probably be your best bets for quality and cooling potential.

The TJ11 can handle two 480 rads internally, where the TJ07 and 800D(with some minor modding) can house a 480 and 240 rads internally.
Pricewise, 800D might be the better of the three.... but the TJ07 is just a beautiful case.

CaseLabs will be be a greater pleasure than that TJ11.
The TJ11 has a bunch of plastic slapped onto it... YUCK!

Budget?

If you are only cooling the CPU and 2 GPUs, you can get away with a triple rad with a push/pull fan config. I'd look at Corsair, Lian-Li, Mountain Mods, Caselabs and Silverstone.

If your budget is high, I'd highly recommend a case that can handle additional rads.

I would say a MM UFO case, or a TJ07.

If you don't care about windowed panel and hot-swap HDDs, 700D is cheap alternative to 800D. HAF another cheap case. Anything else is totally overpriced IMHO.

Also I think somebody is selling cube case in Buy-Sell section.
