So, I've been looking into an ATX Full Tower case so I can add water cooling and these are the two cases I've been looking at and I'm not sure which one I should pick.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Vs.


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm looking to get this mobo soon as well: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm also going to be adding this GPU to my rig as well: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If those two cases aren't that great then you can suggest some other cases to me.

Price: Probably no more than $159
I would like it to look pretty cool with a great set of pre-installed fans with red LEDs and I would love to have dust filters and a fan controller, but it's not really needed. I would also like to have a side window or at least a mesh opening.

If you could help, thanks!

My prefered cases :

NZXT Phantom 410 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... (99$ @ Newegg)

Pretty cheap for the quality, fan controller on top and awesome design. Lots of colours

Corsair Carbide 500r : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (129.99$ @ Newegg)

Sexyiest case iv'e ever seen with some white led fans and a big whole on the side. So good !!



These two cases fit watercooling very well but i think corsair would do a better job at this point.

Are you a gamer ? You should get a better card if you plan playing games because that 7850 will not hold it for a long time...

Well, I already have the Sapphire Vapor-X 7770 GHz edition so I was planning on using both with crossfire. (Yes, I am a gamer.)

Crossfire ... i know it looks good and inexpensive but it may get you in a lot of incompatibility problems ...


You said you can crossfire a 7870 and a 7850 right ? I wasn't sure about that but you confirmed my thoughts. Even there, it would be more safe to CFX same cards incase of some incompatibility issues .... It's your choice, but i feel like CFX and SLI will never be as performant as 1 great card ... Sell that 7770 and get yourself at least a 7950 and CFX it when the new serie will be out (8000).

That's not a bad idea, but it's a LOT of money. Do you know when the 8000 series will come out?

Maybe at winter 2013 or more, or even during summer if they do it quickly.

Oh okay, I'd have enough money by then for it.

But back to cases, from the two cases I picked out, which one would you recommend?

I would go with the cooler master because it's a company that i trust and that makes good products. Azza is a small company and i don't think that case would last for long. My friend had a mouse and keyboard from Azza and they were crappy. Cooler master or one of the two i've shown you. You can look around for other cases on newegg but that's my personal taste.

That's what I was thinking. It does look like a better quality case then the Azza.

You are having the same issue im having, the azza vs the cm, they're both about the same price but cant decide for better cooling and fitting rad/fans (azza) or the better construction/durability(from looks) (cm). Im going for the white varients so my choice is between the Cooler Master Storm Stryker vs. Azza Genisis 9000W vs. NZXT Switch white. but going after what you mention i was think of going towards the Cooler Master Stryker. The NZXT switch also comes to mind because it is also in the same price range and has a built-in 6 fan controller. Sadly both the CM Stryker and NZXT Switch do support 240mm rads but not sanwitched fans. Yes you get get Noctua fans but i always like to sandwitch rads. Thus taking me back to the Azza 9000 that has full support for even 60mm thick rads. Three great case, all about the same price of $150 but each has something unique the other does not.
