Hi - i may want to try this cooler but it wont fit in my current corsair 300R case -

i dont want to make same mistake and get a case that wont fit this cooler on top

i dont want a full tower case either - thats my problem - its too big for my space - but i didnt realize there are many different Midtower case sizes - i figured a Midtower case would be all the same - standard size for Mid - etc, i found out the hard way - so for my next build - i want to use at least the H220x and maybe add a extra 120 Rad to keep it even cooler - i plan to OC my CPU - which ever it may be at the time

my current system is out of order at the moment - had to RMA my board after two years - but it was running hot before - with a 3770k at 4.7 1.275V - using the antec 920 - which i am not sure how great it is or just my luck - i was expecting better - either way - i want to upgrade on my next build - use the H220x - with what ever i end up with -

my main thing is the case first - i dont want a huge one - but one that i can use this cooler and have room for wiring etc, - maybe add a 120 Rad later on if i want more cooling -

i like the corsair cases - but hard to decide which is best - i need at least two drive bays for Blu ray burner and another for cd dvd burner etc, - i dont mind having another one free - maybe fan controller -

any input on case that you guy can recommend -

thanks -

Have you looked at the Cooler Master HAF XM? It has plenty of room for water cooling and should handle any expansions that you want to do as well. If you're partial to Corsair I would look at their 650D. I hope this answers your question.

Regards,

I have the Corsair Air 540 case and the H240X fits with plenty of room to spare. Also, when mounting from the top, it hangs right in the airflow path in between the top front intake and back exhaust fans, so you get plenty of cool air feeding it. (I have mine setup using 3 fans, with the top rad fans in pull and 1 bottom fan in push, exhausting out the top of the case.)
