Hi. I'm planning to upgrade my system and thinking about using the NZXT Kraken x60 to cool my CPU. But, the unit uses a dual 140mm or a 280mm radiator. I cant seem to find a case that can support a 280mm radiator. Can you guys help me find a case that is good, affordable (around 140$ is my budget) great cable management, and most importantly, Support the 280mm radiator that the NZXT Kraken x60 uses.

Here is the compatibility list from the NZXT website.

Kraken Compatiblity Chart V1.1 Updated: 01/28/2013

If that link is not working go directly to NZXT and navigate your way to the X60 page and on the right-hand side under Downloads will be a link to a PDF file listed with Compatibility in the title.

The Corsair 200R is a good budget choice at around $70

Corsair also has 300R which would work and is a little under $80.

The NZXT 630 is a new case with good reviews for around $180 and the 820 is also a great case on the high end for 250.

If you can find them, Xigmatek Utgard series cases have room and mounting holes for top-side 240 and 280 rads. I have 3 but seems suppliers aren't carrying them that much anymore. :/
