Hi everyone, I have a parts list that I am 60% through purchasing. It is now time to make the final decision on the case and cooling design. I am a complete amateur at this so any advice would be helpful. A bit of background, where i live is often over 30C, i do not have carpets but do have a dog. The tower will be off the ground not covered by a desk. In the future i plan to dual SLI the graphics cards. Either 980's or 980TI's. I will be AIO the CPU.
Any advice on push pull, negative, positive air flow, number of fans will be greatly appreciated.
The cases i can purchase where i live and rough price are:
NZXT S340 = 75 GBP NZXT H2 = 75 GBP NZXT H440 = 100 GBP NZXT Source 530 = 95 GBP NZXT Phantom 410 = 90 GBP NZXT Phantom 530 = 110 GBP NZXT H630 = 90 GBP Corsair Air 540 = 95 GBP Corsair 550D Obsidian = 95 GBP Corsair 500R Carbide = 110 GBP Thermaltake Versa H34 = 75 GBP Thermaltake Commander G41 = 75 GBP
Fans will be brought in UK
I am also looking for easy install and cleaning. I rejected the Silverstone R5 because the install looked too hard. Oww and please don't mention Phanteks.... i cannot get them here :(
