    Recommend a case for 120mm watercooling?

    I have a swiftech ultra watercooling kit which has dual 120mm fans externally. Can anyone recommend a suitable case for this setup at scan.

    Thanks

    Yep the Gigabyte 3d Aurora has Dual 120mm rear fans and has rubber grommet thingies on the back for the tubing, great case with plenty of room for all the gubbins you could need.

    I would have to say the aurora, even though I don't have one of these! Heard great things and have a friend with one.

    I've got an Antec P180 and a swiftech kit, I've bolted the radiator to the top fan mount and that works well. You might want to look at a Swiftech Radbox, that'll allow you to attach your rad to (almost) any case.

    Cheers...
