Hi, i was just wanting to know a few Mid Sized cases that fit a Corsair H100 In the top. Thanks.

Corsair 400R or 500R. Both have a good overall quality (Corsair) and features.

400r, 500r, 600t white/black, obsidian 650d, so many more. 650d/600t is your best bet for water cooling in a mid tower.

Everything the above have said...Another case not mentioned nearly enough is Fractal design cases. The one I like is the MIDI ARC by Fractal.

It actually offsets the H100 so that it will not interfere with the memory. Its a sleek design with no side window unless you feel crafty enough to build one.

I like the clean look but if you want a window go for 650d.

The fractal Arc midi takes a H100 . As my own rig testifies.

Good kit the H100 . My i5 2500k O/C'd @ 4400 is yet to see a temp higher than 32 degrees. Case is excellent too.

Fractal cases are awesome, but just so you know, the R3 can't handle the H100 for sure. Sometimes it works ("tight fit"), depending on your motherboard, but most of the time it doesn't. :)

Still don't see the need to spend so much money on a cooler like this. For less than 1/4 of the price coolers like the Hyper 212/EVO or even my own Arctic Freezer 13 can keep an i5-2500k cool at over-clocks of 4.6GHz+

All that extra money saved could be better put towards the next best GPU or an SSD :)

Very likely so...but lower temps mean lower noise.

It certainly does in my case. Plus of course, effectively longer life.

It also gives me an upgrade path of low temps....longer life, lower noise.

Ok, not an exact science, but some overkill does give some security, and peace of mind

Works very well for me

Also aesthetics come into play. You can hide the radiator in the top (depending on your case). Watercooling can possibly look very nice and clean and that is important for a lot of people. Otherwise there wouldn't be cases with windowed side panels. ;)

Mhm, than both the corsair dude and the one with the pictures are wrong. :p 

Does the fan in the back still fit? And which motherboard is it? Is there a lot of room left?

And no Sir here ...

Don't take the risk for the 400r, it might block the power connectors unless you have a right angle connector.
