Buying a New PC Case and Other Things. Need Suggestions

Hey guys, I am buying a new case and some other things so I need some suggestion as which one to buy.

My already purchased rig is -
CPU : Intel i7 4771 4th Generation
Mobo : GigaByte Z87X-OC
GFX : Asus GTX 760 DirectII OC
RAM :16 GB RAM Corsair Vengeance
HDD : 4 TB WD Green ( 2x2 )
PSU : 700 W Cooler Master PSU.

I will also be getting 240 GB SSD and Corsair H100i Liquid Cooling.

I need a Full Tower Case . So suggest me a good Full Tower Case that has more space and good air flow and better cables management.

Also which brand of SSD should I get ?
And is the Corsair H100i Liquid Cooler good enough to keep my rig cool ?Asking because I will be buying the DirectX 12 supported Graphics card or Nvidia 880 whichever is released shortly.

Kindly help.


Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    I dont know if you need liquid cooling, since the i7 4771 is locked processor. In the future if you will be buying i7 4770k, then yes get aftermarket cooling, but for now with the i7 4771, even a $30 air cooler will do more than enough proper cooling.
    -About SSD, go with Samsung, Crucial, Kingston or Intel.

    Yes I know that 4771 cannot be overclocked and I never overclocked any processors till date. I feel that doing it forces some kind of pressure on it. So, I avoid overclocking anything.
    But the 4771 is the upgrade model than 4770K right ?
  3. They are almost the same, except the 4770k is unlocked one. If you don't care about overclocking, you will not see any difference between 4771 and 4770k or 4770 (non k) at stock settings. I assumed you might be overclocking later if you will be buying the 4770k, since you have Z87 chipset motherboard, which is made for overclocking.
