    I voted for the 800D, but I'm looking forward to the 900D. I just wish they would release it.

    I just got my 800D a while back but am still waiting to swith my rig over to it. However I have been playing around with it and it is an awesome case with a lot of room!
    That being said, I would take a serious look at the Magnum Caselabs:toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I too am rather fond of my Cheiftec cloned Koolance Watercooling case.

    But for a modern case I would say the 800D.

    Hi

    This may help - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165780

    nb: I own an 800D and well I find it rather cramped with a dual loop, had to place one rad outside the system, also their choice when placing tubing holes left a lot to be desired. [to close together to fit a Swiftech MCP655 1200 L/ph Pump with Variable Speed Control : MCP655 and return the tube] ended up with a EK DCP 4.0 800lph 12V Compact Pump to get the shortest loop; fitted in the upper chamber.

    atb (all the best)

    The old CM Stacker gen 1 ST-01 or something like that.

    dual psus if you wanted, rad in the front, or bottom w/o modding, or with a little modding in the top.

    I have a friend who wants a very silent htpc setup, which I've been building for him piece by piece. I tried to get him to go water cooling, but he's under the assumption the the pumps are loud. I just need a simple closed loop system for him. Are the pumps loud?

    Most pumps are not loud. I can here the water rushing over the noise the D4 and D5 I own make. I could not hear the MCP350 at all.

    He's really anal about computer noise, so it's a bit of fussiness... but I rather thought using water cooling, and adjusting pump speed ect, it would be quieter than any air cooled system.
    Or am I wrong about that??
    And I'd go for the Corsair 800D at the drop of the hat.....

    God the Cosmos II is such a sick case!!! Thats what I wanted for a while, but then I kind of realized its huge, and only has 3 5.25" slots. And its 47 pounds hah! One thing i like about the 800D is the zones with the panel going across the bottom seperating the PSU area to the motherboard/components. I like that look a lot.

    Snag one of those DDC1A's up for sale on here. Silent and you can run them off of a motherboard header to adjust it even more.

    Well, depends how much you modify or what you use internally. I've ditched the DVD drive for a USB external one. No bulky HDD's just 2 SSD's. That creates lots of space for internal water cooling.

    I still say the TJ07 is a superb full tower case for water (although the TJ11 is even more huge). I have a 480 rad in the base and a 240 rad in the front bays. I also have two tube reservoirs inside the case (250mm & 150mm).

    There are also two Laing D5 vario pumps (at setting 3) in the case - they make no noise at all.

    I have a Switch 810 and for the price its the best H2O case you can get. I also have a CaseLabs TH10 (with Pedestal + 120mm Extended Top + dozens of customizations), and it is so insanely huge that I am seriously considering adding a whole 2nd PC to it!

    But having used the 800D, the Switch gives you more radiator room, is half the cost, and requires minimal or no modification. I have an EX420 Push-Pull and UT60 240 Push-Pull without any issues, as well as two reservoirs and an MCP35X2.

    I noticed the other day that both NewEgg and Amazon were listing the 900D, both out-of-stock. Now it's missing from NewEgg except in de-activated items, but still listed on Amazon, for only $337.26, and can be pre-ordered to be shipped when back in stock (supposedly in April). I foresee a great demand for this case for at least a year. I'm tempted to order mine now.....
