Showcase: Thermaltake Tower 900Staff Pick
Our favorite case is the Thermaltake Tower 900. I mean, just look at it. This is a PC builder's dream to put together a water-cooling loop. You can even run multiple loops, one for your GPU and the second for your CPU.
Super Tower: Corsair Obsidian 1000D
Corsair's Obsidian 1000D is a beast of a case. You can technically install two PCs inside this case with two power supplies and more. If you wanted to create a truly unique-looking standard tower build, this is your case.
Wall Mountable: Thermaltake Core P5
Thermaltake makes some of the more compelling cases, and the Core P5 is about as unique a case as you can get. Think outside the case for once and mount it to your wall. Just watch out for dust since it's completely open.
Easy Installation: Cougar CONQUER 2
The Conquer 2 from Cougar is brilliant, especially if you prefer some open space to get your water-cooling loop just right. The inside tray can be removed from the outer case, allowing you to install everything before sliding it into place.
Small & Mighty: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic
Lian Li makes some amazing cases, and the PC-O11 Dynamic is yet another fine example of the company's craftsmanship. It's a mid-tower case but can only hold up to a MicroATX motherboard, meaning you'll need to be smart with how you make your loop.
Impressive Design: Phanteks Enthoo 719
The Enthoo 719 is a stunning case from Phanteks that allows you to go all out and customize your water-cooling rig with plenty of handy features. You can cram plenty of radiators inside, run multiple GPUs vertically, and have two systems with dual PSUs.
The best PC case for water-cooling
If you're looking for a case to help you showcase your system build, the Thermaltake Tower 900 is a case you should strongly consider. It's a gorgeous chassis that can support two reservoirs and pumps for separate loops, one for your GPU and another for a CPU, allowing you to create some awesome-looking results.
Prefer to work with a traditional tower chassis? The Corsair Obsidian 1000D is probably the better option, rocking a more subtle look than the Tower 900 from Thermaltake, but still allowing you to pack so much inside. You can even go all out and install two PCs inside.
