    Hi there :)

    I'm planning to buy a water cooling system (EK-KIT H3O - Supreme HF 360)

    And i think that my current case (Antec 902) isn't enough to contain a water cooling system so i decided to buy a new case but i don't know what should i choose

    so help me to choose :banghead:

    Thanks a lot

    What about the CM HAF X ?

    Actually the Corsair 800D is pretty expensive

    HAF-X is more for air cooling, but I am not sure might be worth looking at people's experiences with the haf-x, the main problem with water cooling is the radiator mounts.

    This reason is why most people who use watercooling go with the 800D
    you should also provide us with your budget, it'll help.

    But anyway the HAF x is enough for one 360 radiator right?

    Well my budget is about 240$, but the prices here in Sweden is different than in US, the 800D costs 340$ and the HAF x 240$

    Yes it should, if you need triple radiator can always just buy longer tubing. Most people seem to have this lay out http://www.tech-forums.net/pc/attac...-price-limit-watercooling-system-dsc00714.jpg, but for single radiators, that'll be compatible with any case really as you'd presumably be mounting it on your exhaust fan
     
    Gainward says thanks.

    If you are going the Coolermaster route, I would suggest the ATCS 840 over the HAF X. A tripple easily fits up top. It's a bigger case with many more options, even adding another dual in the drive bays, the inside just isn't painted black like the HAF.

    Here it is, with a tripple mount shown. The nice thing is it's all internal.
