Default Looking for a case for a top mount H115i Platinum

Hey all,

Looking for recommendations on a case that would easily house the H115i Platinum in a top mount exhaust configuration. Looking for one with the glass side panel of course and good airflow as well.

What would you guys recommend?

The 680x would be one choice. It’s wider than a lot cases and sets up well for 140mm fan builds. The separate chamber design allows bottom fans and that tends to take care of most airflow issues especially for the GPU.

The 680x has terrible air flow. It does look nice being a dual chamber bbut if you use mechanical drives for plex or backup. There is no air flow on them at all.

I would personally look at the newer 4000 series cases from Corsair. I'm not sure what you want to spend on a case. But for $80 I would take the 4000D airflow case or one of the other cases in that line up.

Yeah! I saw the 4000D and think it looks great! My main concern would be my RAM, I am currently using Corcair Vengeance RGB Pro and in reviews and such they are recommending low profile RAM for clearance. As silly as it is, I would hate to have to ditch perfectly good RGB RAM in order to get the LPX just to clear the H115i at the top.

With the H115i install as a top exhaust, are the top of your DIMMS tucked in behind the fans and rad at the top?

I don't have the 4000D but my ram clears fine in the 680x if that is what you are asking. I have the Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB. They are the same height size as your Vengeance ram I believe,

Just bear in mind that the new 30 series graphics cards are mostly on or over 320mm long.

Can anyone confirm that it's possible to mount a 280mm radiator AIO (like the Kraken X63 or H115i) in this case, when using high ram like the Vengeance RGB pro ?

Yes you can install a 280mm radiator in push or pull in the top with Vengeance RGB Pro.
