I havent entirely made my mind up about the cooler, i have the H60 but after realising its not going to get me that great an overclock im considering a h100 or forgetting water cooling entirely and going with a NH-D14 which is supposed to give similar results to a H100. With this in mind i really need a case that can keep my options open, in other words so i can do water cooling or air cooling.
Both cases above will support a H100 in the top although the Zalman needs the top panel removing permanently. I believe both will also support a NH-D14.
Thanks i really like the 400r, the one im looking at isnt quite a 400r but its as good as, same chasis just cheaper. I'll be buying it tomorrow so if anyone has anything to add or a reason why i should get the zalman instead please let me know. I've looked at a lot of cases these past few days, some as high as £110 but this novatech branded 400r seems the best value.
Well i still havent decided on a case, i was set on the novatech branded 400r but when i went to order i found it wasnt in stock until april 26th ! Since then i've ordered a corsair 400r only to cancel it an hour later and change it to a zalman z12 plus which i have now also cancelled. Arghh who knew choosing a case would be so difficult, not me ... I've done lots of research on various cases and i still dont know what to get. My gut is telling me to forget the h100 and go for a case optimised for air cooling like the antec eleven hundred but something is stopping me.
