    Suggestions for water cooling case.

    Hi all,

    I currently have a LIAN-LI PC A-17 case but want to go down the watercooling route. I bought a heap of watercooling stuff about a year ago but have never got off my butt to fit it and to be honest I would prefer to find a case more suited to it than having to cut up the Lian Li.

    So, peeps, can you recommend a mid tower case that will take a triple rad in the roof with the PSU in the floor. NB I don't want anything much bigger than the A-17.

    Need 2 x 3 1/2" bays internal and 4 x 5 1/4" bays external

    many thanks in advance for your input.
    Rgds,

    Re: Suggestions for water cooling case.

    AFAIK none, larger than midtower you've got things like the corsair 800d.
    But for a mid tower your only option is to get cutting.

    It's very rare to be able to fit water cooling without some modding being involved, doubly so with a triple rad involved.

    This is a mod to consider will work with you existing case, but you'll lose drive space:

    Otherwise, an A05n will fit a 3x120 in the top
