Corair builds compatibility into their cases for the H20 products.
profile's not available
yeah I know but some only work in pull (exhaust) configurations. I know the H105 fits in the 500R but only in pull. I'd want a push configuration so it exhausts air from the case out as well as cools the radiator but that's not possible with the 500R and the H105 (too thick I think)
Or you could try contacting member ''hood'' he has a 750 D as well, I recently seen him post a picture of his case on my cable management thread.
I did some reading and push/pull doesn't have that much of a benefit unless you're willing to spend money to replace the stock fans and buy four high pressure fans, so I'm gonna still with either push or pull, and one of those will fit in the 750D for sure
I'm thinking about going Micro ATX with the case but I'm not sure... you can get SLI/Crossfire microATX motherboards that can overclock and whilst I was looking at the 750D it's about £125. The Fractal R2 XL is £100, but I have more than enough room with the 500R at the moment and seeing as I have no intention to set up custom watercooling I don't think there's really a point in getting a full tower. Also a small PC is more practical (lighter, space-saving)
I'm not sure which form factor I'm going to go for yet but my picks are
mATX - Fractal Design Arc Mini R2
mid tower: NZXT H440/Corsair 450D
full tower: Fractal R2 XL/Obsidian 750D
What do you think about this?
That's a really good case actually, I like that front 200mm fan. I don't think it's as good looking as the 450D though which is like £2 more. I'll look ups some reviews for sound levels though. I can't believe thats selling for $99 in the US tho, we're getting shafted over here.
that Enthoo case is definitely the most practical around £90 (more than 450D, H440) but the others look better + sound quieter
Does "fan header" mean the fan speeds of the fans plugged in can be controller by motherboard? or is it just sort of like an extension plug and they're just either on or off
