Mini ITX Case with Water-cooling Support + Good Build Quality.

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a compact case that supports water cooling, with either steel or aluminum as the primary build material. I was originally planning on going with the Thermaltake Core V1 but it has limited water cooling support. I've been considering either the Fractal Design Define NANO S or the Enthro Evolv ITX but I'm not a huge fan of the plastic finish.

Any suggestions?

Nano S

I second the Fractal Design Nano S and would add the Evolv ITX from Phanteks.

It's a bit of a squeeze but you can do it in a SilverStone FTZ01:

I don't think that's possible lol. Not without external rads.

nvm, I saw what he did. Quite impressive, but still, I don't think you would be able to watercool the GPU and CPU without an external rad.

Fractal design core 500? Only if you're going for AIO water cooling though. I have one if you want to ask questions.

There's a fantastic Corsair 250D build on the site, as well as a pretty slick NCase M1 that I can't find for the life of me. Both cases have pretty nice build quality.

There's also the Zalman M1 and the Cougar QBX that have some water support.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I'll check them out and see what works best for me :)
