    just shopping around for my case right now... i plan on doing water cooling simular to EnergyFX's Rig but am having trouble finding a case i like, i am gonna completely mod and paint the case, i don't need a new case just something larger than a super full tower thats not a cube:(... if any one has something they would like to sell or recommend please comment below.


    Planned specs:

    ASUS P5E64 WS EVELUTION
    INTEL QX9650
    4x Raptor 150GB HDs
    ASUS Xonar DX sound card
    two (4870 x2) in CrossfireX

    I was wondering if anybody had any reccomendations on Koolaces new PSU and CPU-340... i was thinking of laping the bottom to expose the copper for better heat transfer.

    EDIT: still wondering about the psu and new block.

    thanks alot...

    the first one is exactly what i was looking for, i looked at a Newer Super-Full Tower i like but i would have butchered it anyways (waste of money) thanks, i will update in a few days when i get the case.

    order server towers isn't always a good idea... check out a local dealer and see if they can order one for you (discounted shipping) or if a local PC shop can donate one to you.

    i wanna mount at least two triple rads in it... the PSU is water cooled 1300w and will have koolance piping coming out of it into the shape of a half square... (useing the vga spacers and elbow joints) since the main word in this build is INTERNAL... the psu will sit normally but pulled back 3" in the case.

    i would just keep everything internal... i think that with a large server tower you could pull it of..
