Default Cases that fit 3x120mm Rads

I'm looking for cases that can internally fit 3x120mm radiators. I've only been able to find a small hand full and they can get pricey.

My Absolute Favorite... except it's huge and quite pricey

Corsair Obsidian 800D

Not too big of a fan of this one

Cooler Master Cosmos S

Impartial to this one, people seem to like it well enough

COOLER MASTER HAF 932

I currently own a Thermal Take Armor Series... and it looks like you can mount the Rad in the front with a little modding... but the case is just too messy on the inside...

Example 1
Example 2

that and I'm no expert at cable management... I currently have it mounted on the back and I'm just kind of tired of that kind of a setup.

Does anyone else know of any other cases or have recommendations?

All comes down to having the money as always. I'm pretty sure from what I want out of my case I might as well bank around spending 300 for it at this rate

Hmmm... the Pinnacle can handle two 3x120 rads.

I have the Lian-Li A70B, there's plenty of room for a big radiator

I looked into mounting a 3x120 rad in my Armor and it was going to be a pain. It can go up front but you have to go with one dvd drive and use the triple hd holder up by the psu.

I saw one where the guy reversed his psu to the bottom for a top mount and that looked the best but some serious work is involved.

Needless to say the Cosmos S is top on my list right now. Some of the Mountain Mods are up there as well but I would need to go back to the states to save on shipping.

the antec 1200 has room for a triple 120mm rad. allthough installing it can be a pain it looks nice when done.

The Lian-Li cases have always looked very good. I am intrigued by the mountain mods chasis as well. The Obsidian gives me the idea that it's going to be freaking huge. Bigger than the Thermal Take Armor series cases... I'm not superior at wire managemnet... and thats what I was really intrigued with the Obsidian. They make it look like a dummy can do it. On top of that, on my Armor this is my first WC setup.. come to realize there is no easy way to drain ALL of the water out of the system lol... so once I narrow down on a case I'll have to look into that next...

Thanks alot!
