Hey Guys im new to the whole watercooling concept and was wondering if you guys could help me decide on which of these two cases i should buy.

My Current System Specs are

Q6600 @ 2.4 | ThermalTake Volcano V1 Cooler |
ASUS Striker II Formula | Kingston 2048MB 1066MHz DDR2 RAM - 5-5-5-15 - Hyper X SLI Ready Series | OCZ 850W GameXStream SLI Ready Power Supply | ASUS GeForce 8800GTS - 512MB DDR3 TOP Edition | Seagate 1TB 7200rpm Serial ATA-II-300 HDD

But i plan to add another 8800GTS and another 2GB of Ram and overclock my CPU to 3GHZ +

Would either of these Cases be Able to cool My CPU as well as both Video Cards ???

While the Armor case is excellent, the TT LCS is junk. I would get the case and buy WC gear separate. The LCS included in these cases would be good for CPU only (maybe CPU and one GPU).

I wouldn't use either. Tony is right, the TT W/Cing stuff is garbage. I never have liked the Armor, but somehow I ended up stuck with one for a few months until i could get it sold. It has solid construction, but I really did not like it.

I currently have the Armor. My biggest complaint about it is its poor wire management. Other than that, it's a very good case, IMHO.

However, right now I'm waiting on delivery of my Mountain Mods Ascension case. I think I could move a family of six into it. (smile).

Thanks for the advice the guys think i might get the armour case and add some upgraded water cooling later on down the track

The new Armor + has better wire management and a removable mobo tray.
