Water cooling tower

Recommended Posts

So here is my dilemma, I have a Antec 1200 case.  I don't like it.  I wan't a case with a nice window, high quality, something that will fit a nice sized water cooling system with a reservoir.  I think I want to try open loop but I need suggestions on a case.  I like this:

but I don't know if it is big enough

 

I love this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119252

 

But it doesn't have a window.

 

I have been burned by getting some of the off brand cases because they fit the need, only to find that the cases are crap and full of cheep crap.

 

Any suggestions would be stupendous!

Nothing wrong with the two cases you've linked if you like them.  I'd like to add a few more to consider though;

 

Mid-Tower

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2

Corsair C70

 

Full Tower

NZXT Switch 810

How is NZXT as a brand?  I am use to high quality stuff from Cooler Master or other various brands.  I had an experience with a NZXT case and it was very poorly made.

my two experiences with NZXT have been good. One was the Source 530 which is a mid tower and the other I can't remeber (it was a long time ago).

Must have gotten a bad apple on your previous NZXT case.  My two experiences with them were great, even though the styling was kind of radical at the time.  The Source 810 gets generally rave reviews for a steel/plastic case.

Back to NZXT.  I've got two of their inexpensive mid-towers (the Source 210) for my FTP / Vent server and for one of the HTPC machines at home.  I caught them on sale for $29.00 + free shipping and probably the best $29 bucks I've ever spent on cases.  Even their inexpensive mid-towers are pretty well made.  My previous two NZXT cases were from their upper range cases and they were awesome.
