    Been thinking of getting another case for my rig. I currently have the original CM Stacker case (with windowed side panel) and I have my 120.3 in the bottom of the case which fits quite nicely. Been looking at the current cases on the market but im unsure that I could fit my rad inside them. If there is anyone else out there that has 120.3 inside their case let me know what model you have!
    Also why dont more of the current cases have windowed side panels anymore, is that not cool any more or something?

    If anyone knows of some big upcoming cases can you let me know about them too, I love choice!

    Thanks

    :)

    Yeah, I quite look that. Would be nice to see a pic with the rad and all the bits and pieces inside.

    i though my old Cheftec big tower would do it but it won't (i would have to have the door open all the time , so when i get to finish my moding it (drilling new fan holes repainting it ) i shall just stick the rad ontop on its side , can't be assed to make a stand at this time.

    Can you do the same thing with the Lian-Li PC V2000?

    I think the V1000b is a bit small for me.

    Edit: Anyone thinking of getting a PC-S80? Do you think you could fit a 120.3 rad inside that?

    if the v200 is bigger then hell yes :), and the s80 from what i heard is a monster so again plenty of room to do the top mounted rad

    edit (i think the S80 is not an upside down mobo tho so would be mounted at the bottom like in your stacker)

    Cant say I like the layout much.

    Why dont they make side windows anymore for newer cases?

    wow not what i was expecting when filled, dont think your going to get a 120.3 in there without alot of modding. And as for windows i prefer to cut my own not keane on purchased ones anyway. and maybe because more people mod there cases nowadays maybe they just thought they dont need window panels

    G70 as the new replacement for the PC-70 is better suited than the S80 as it has dual PSU mounts ala original stacker so plenty space to mount a triple rad at either top or bottom.

    S80 has dual pannels and is more like a Windy case, not going to be good for internal water cooling at all. Looks a beast though. :D

    G70 is the successor to the PC70 which is arguably the best case for watercooling out there.

    G70 looks like a stacker to me.

    2 spaces for PSU at top and bottom, same as stacker. Just all aluminium and looks a little better.

    i think you could also get a 120.3 rad in the top of the p180, by sacrificing the top 120mm fan

    i dont think the p180 is of the same standard as the above case namely G70

    Just found another pic of the G70, looks nice.

    Roomy inside too. Shame there is no side window unless you can buy them one their own.

    Did not realise, but you can already buy these for £137.99 Inc vat, which aint too bad.
