Default Tech Forums Liquid Cooled Case Gallery

Can we start a LCS Case Gallery here? I know extreme systems has one, buy can't we? Also list your opinions on your current case, pros and cons.

Here's mine:
Antec 900
Single loop Swiftech full cover GPU Block
DTek Fusion CPU Block on my PII 940
Lang DDC Pump and XSPC Pump top and Rex
Swiftech MCR 220 Rad (soon to be 320)
Zalman 6 channel fan controller

The airflow in the case is great, but there isn't a lot of room once you start adding larger graphics cards and more hard drives. The PSU on the bottom takes up valuable real estate and the top fan of a PSU can be a problem for dropped screws during removal/install of hardware.

With Pleasure:







Case: HAF932, like it a lot, wish it had more options for a dual loop setup... debating between cutting it up for a second rad, or buying a TJ07... or that new Corsair Obsidian case...

Corsair Obsidian, eh? Nice lookin case... I'm still case shopping.. It's down to the Mountain Mods Pinnacle, Mountain Mods UFO-U2, Corsair Obsidian, or a couple others.

The Pinnacle has almost too much room, and no real racks to mount anything.. Although MM does supply brackets to mate to a 120mm fan to house 3 HDD's each. The Silverstone Raveen is out because of the Vertical MB mount (I/O panel on the top.) I'm dancing around the idea of a Dual Loop Coolant system, but I'd need another thing to run coolant to on the CPU side of the loop.. Going Dual 4870's soon.

This is getting exhausting.. LOL..

Here's a Vid of the Corsair Obsidian.

That Obsidian looks pretty cool. One thing I noticed on the water cooling one was that the tube on the left that went down to the psu level looked kinked a little.
