The unfortunate answer to this is that it is up to you. I can recommend cases all day, but you are the one that has to be looking at it. The S340 is a good case on the more budget side. The Lian Li PC 0-11 dynamic is a beautiful case on the higher end side. I would go to Newegg and go to the case section, select what you can't live without and then go from there and pick a case from a reputable brand that you think looks good.

thanks for reply, but Im from EU, so I cant go to Newegg :( I wanted to buy Fractal Design Meshify, but I dont know if radiators from CPU cooler and GPU cooler will fit it or not. If not then maybe something like R6?

Rin_Itoh 1 point 3 months ago

The Meshify C has room at the back for up to a 140 mm rad, at the top it has room for up to a 240 mm rad, and the front has room for up to a 360 mm rad. It should be able to handle both of those AIOs no problem.

Thanks again.. last question.. is Be quiet! Dark Base 700 a good choise compared those two from Fractal Design?

Rin_Itoh 1 point 3 months ago

It should have the same rad support, but should be quieter (obviously). Any case from a reputable brand should probably be good.

I help you to clarify the doubt about Meshify C

Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Aorus Waterforce Xtreme Edition Length = 266.67mm

Cooler Master - MasterLiquid ML240L RGB thickness: 27mm Radiator + 25mm Fan = 52mm

Fractal Design Meshify C Graphics card length limit: Max 315mm with front fan mounted (25mm)

315mm-27mm (radiator) = 288mm. If you want a front radiator this is your graphics card length limit, so no problem here.

If you want the radiator in top position, it is the Ram that could interfere. From Fractal site: Top radiator 120/240mm (max component height on motherboard 40mm). The height of the Patriot Viper RGB is 45.4mm, here instead there is a problem of space.

Fractal Design Meshify C, Fractal Design Define R6, NZXT S340 Elite, NZXT H500, NZXT H700, Corsair Crystal 570X RGB Mirror Black, LIAN LI PC-O11 Dynamic, or the new Phanteks Evolv X (comes out in August)
