Default Need help picking a case

choose from
Lian li pc-343

Lian li tyr-x500


Was looking at the cosmos s but its just too gamey for me. I need something that can hold a triple rad like it was meant to be there. I know the cosmos and 343 can do it but the x500 is going to be hard and its a mid tower. Any other suggestions? Would like to stick w/ lian li.

Have you considered the x2000?

Or you could mod a case like these guys did:

I know little to nothing about water cooling but I love my A10B and it's a huge mid tower.

Oh the one that cost $600. Yea I thought about it and its expensive as heck.$300 range
the 75 is nice but too conventional. I'm leaning towards the 343

my only gripe is its a mid tower . How I would fit a radiator in is beyond me. I would have to get creative and cut. Whereas the 343 you can mount a triple rad on the right side but the down side to that is I have to buy a bunch of perforated drive covers from fresh air. It does however hold a dual rad up top no problems.
