Need help choosing the best case for gaming and it needs to accommodate a NZXT Kraken X60.
I have a short list:
Cooler Master HAF X - would need modifying to fit Kraken
Cooler Master Storm Trooper/Stryker - both compatible
Thermaltake Core 71 - compatible I think
Thermaltake Urban T81 - compatible
Thermaltake Chaser A71 LCS full tower - unsure
Any other suggestions for cases? Or should I choose a different water cooling system?
Budget is £150 for case and £150 for water cooling. This is a pc build for my brother who would like water cooling system since he will overclock his CPU and GPU.
I recommend he get a mid tower case as a full tower is probably overkill for his build.
I also recommend a Noctua NH-D15 which will cost much less than the x60, perform exactly the same, and make less than half the noise.
Oh okay that's interesting. Noctua air coolers are awesome, I have one for my build. In what scenario would you only recommend a full tower case. I would have thought buying a bigger case would allow you space for extra additions of components over the years.
