  • Solid build quality
  • Easy to set up

Cons

Aesthetics & Build Quality: The Lian Li O11 Dynamic is a tough mid-tower chassis that features more tempered glass than I am used to seeing in cases.

Cooling Performance: Its large-sized, dual-chamber design provides excellent cooling, which is also helped by its 27mm tall feet and the bottom that brings in cold air. For cooling, we have support for up to 2x 360mm radiators and 1x 240mm radiator. Both my test CPU and GPU remained under 70Β°C under stress, and noise was minimum.

Features: The chassis supports all motherboard sizes from Mini-ITX to E-ATX (under 280mm, though) and also shows impressive GPU length clearance at 455mm. Moreover, there is plenty of room for easy cable management, and features like the installed cable clips eased my experience further.

WARNING: There are no fans included in the package, so you will have to purchase them separately.

Buy It If

βœ… You need ample space: I’m sure everyone would love the amount of space you have inside the Lian Li O11 Vision.

βœ… Easy cable management is key: The chassis’ dual-chamber design, cable holders, a cable tie point, and more, make cable-management fun.

Don’t Buy It If

❌ You expect pre-included fans: You’ll have to purchase the fans separately as this case does not come with any.

With its three sides of tempered glass, impressive thermal performance, and great potential for water cooling, the Lian Li O11 Vision is a must-have for water-cooling enthusiasts. Furthermore, its dual-chamber design allows for easy set up and cable management. In summary, the Lian Li O11 Vision is my pick for the Best Overall Water Cooled PC Case.

Cooling Performance: For cooling, there’s plenty of room for experimentation thanks to its size. It has dual radiator mounts for the front and top, so 2x for each build. I set it up with two systems and was pleasantly surprised how cool both systems ran with this dual-configuration.

Features: You already know what the top features of this case is, and its also my favorite: the ability to support two systems thanks to its triple chamber layout. Its large size also provides you with ample cable management space, so things went breezy for me in that department, too.

Editor`s Note
Image

The Corsair Obsidian 1000D is one of the rare cases out there which allows dual-setup configurations, and the consequence is its massive 29.5kg of weight without any components installed.

– Faizan Ahmed

Buy It If

βœ… You want to set up a dual system: If you’re interested in building two PCs within one casing, this case offers that unique feature.

Don’t Buy It If

❌ Portability matters: The Corsair Obsidian 1000D’s sheer size and weight make it cumbersome and challenging to move around, compromising its portability.

❌ Additional expenses concern you: It doesn’t come with a PSU or fans, which was a disappointment for me considering its hefty price tag.

NZXT has been impressing me with the build quality of its products for years, and this one is no exception.

Cooling Performance: Thanks to its clever design, the chassis allows for maximum cooling and excellent airflow. Talking radiator support, there’s provision for a 280mm one in the front and a 120mm in the rear. The H510’s design kept all the components cool and quiet in my testing, thanks to this design.

All-in-all, the case was extremely easy to work with for me, and even a beginner should have a straightforward experience.

Editor`s Note
Image

Just like the S340 from NZXT, their H510 established itself as an instant classic with its sleek design and aesthetics. As far as water cooling is concerned, though, it offers decent support and also comes with three fans for an overall decent cooling package.

– Faizan Ahmed

Buy It If

❌ You want the best value: The price of this PC case is also up for debate as many people think that it is overpriced.

What Makes It The Best Custom Water Cooled PC Case?

The NZXT H510 is a great PC case if you are just starting in PC building and want to get your hands on a water-cooled PC case. It generally has good reviews and provides a lot of thermal protection when used in tandem with a water cooling system.

CoolerMaster Masterbox NR200P

Best ITX Case For Water Cooling

Cooler Master NR200P
Cooler Master NR200P

Specifications: Type: Small Form Factor Mini ITX | Colors: Black, White, Blue, Pink, Orange, Purple | Motherboard Support: Mini ITX, Mini DTX | Dimensions: 11.5 x 7.28 x 14.80 inches | Radiator Support: 92 mm (Rear), 120 mm/ 240 mm (Bottom), 120 mm, 140 mm, 240 mm, 280 mm (Side) | Ports: 2x USB 3.2 Type A, 1x Audio I/O | Drive Bays: 2x 3.5 inch, 3x 2.5 inch, 1x 2.5/ 3.5 inch

Pros

  • Includes Riser card for vertical GPU mounting in package
  • Small yet spacious design
  • Built via sturdy material
  • Good value alongside a glass model
  • Provides great cooling and cable management

Cons

  • Limited Availability  
  • The front panel is plain
  • Aesthetic and paint finish are considered bland by most

Aesthetics & Build Quality: Just like most of Cooler Master’s cases, the NR200P has a rather plain and simple design, along with a nice, compact built. I like how there’s options for a tempered glass or a vented front panel, and its combination of steel and plastic show a super-sturdy build.

Cooling Performance: You’ll be surprised to know that the chassis support up to seven fans despite its petite size. Furthermore, it has two liquid cooling pump locations at the bottoms and a side radiator mount. Running a 240mm custom-loop setup with the chassis, I was blown away by how cool every component ran during my stress testing.

Features: I loved the fact that this chassis allows you to dismantle every panel as it made installation a breeze for me, despite its small size. What’s more, it supports triple-slot GPUs. We also get 2x Sickleflow fans and a GPU riser cable for vertical mounting – very impressive!

Editor`s Note
Image

When it comes to compact chassis, there is not a lot that the NR200P from CoolerMaster lacks. So long as you’re okay with its plain aesthetics, it should be your top pick for a mini-ITX chassis.

– Faizan Ahmed

Buy It If:

βœ… You prioritize straightforward installation: The Cooler Master NR200P is an easy-to-assemble chassis thanks to its dismantlable design.

βœ… You seek a simple design: If you’re a fan of a plain and simple chassis, this one is as good as they come.

Don’t Buy It If:

❌ You require USB C ports: The I/O panel does not offer any USB Type-C ports.

❌ You seek textured aesthetics: Its painted colors lack texture, potentially disappointing those looking for more visually dynamic cases.

What Makes It The Best ITX Case For Water Cooling?

Cooler Master’s Masterbox NR200P is the Best ITX Case For Water Cooling if you are on the quest for a Mini-ITX case that can support water cooling. It is also a great option if you are on a tight budget. You may also need a Low-Profile CPU Cooler for this.

Thermaltake Core P3 TG

Best Budget PC Case For Water Cooling

Thermaltake Core P3 TG
Thermaltake Core P3 TG

Specifications: Type: Mid-Tower | Colors: Black | Motherboard Support: Mini ITX (6.7” x 6.7”), Micro ATX (9.6” x 9.6”), ATX (12” x 9.6”) | Dimensions: 20.2 x 13.1 x 18.5 inches | Radiator Support: up to 420 mm (Side) | Ports: 2x USB 3.0, USB 2.0 x 2, 1x Audio I/O | Drive Bays: 2x 2.5/3x 3.5 inches (Outside), 2x 2.5 inches/1x 3.5 inches

Pros

  • Good looking and modular design
  • Top-notch build quality
  • Decent amount of drive expansion ports
  • Ample cable-management space
  • Tempered Glass looks gorgeous

Cons

  • GPU length is limited by water-cooling
  • Dust can be problematic in desk orientation

Aesthetics & Build Quality: The Thermaltake Core P3 TG features a gorgeous open-air design, featuring a 5mm thick tempered glass side panel to offer a crystal clear view of all the components. There’s nothing to dislike about the design for me as someone who likes open-air chassis, and its steel section shows solid build quality.

Cooling Performance: With open-air designs, you already know the airflow is going to be excellent as there’s little to no obstruction. Moreover, there support for up to a 420mm radiator or up to 3x 140mm on the left side. Everything from the SSD, to the GPU stayed showed solid temperatures as I stress tested them with this chassis.

Features: The chassis supports three layouts: as a wall-mount, or horizontal/vertical placement on a desk. We get an included riser cable for vertical GPU mounting. Although, I was disappointed by the fact that GPU length support is shortened to 280mm when the radiator and reservoir is installed. 

PRO TIP: Make sure to clean your fans and components of dust occasionally, as the open-air design can be more prone to dust accumulation.

Buy It If: 

βœ… You want wall-mounting support: If, along with water cooling support, you want to display your build on a wall, this is an excellent chassis for that.

βœ… Easy assembly is important: Just like the NR200P, this chassis features a dismantlable design, which makes the set up breezy.

Don’t Buy It If:

❌ You’re planning to use a large GPU: Installing a water cooling setup limits the GPU support to 280mm long, which is too low for modern high-end GPUs.

What Makes It The Best Budget PC Case For Water Cooling?

If you are on a budget and looking for a PC case among the Best Mid-Tower Water Cooling Cases, Thermaltake Core P1 is the right choice for you as you can get it at an amazing price, but the 3-year warranty will provide you with peace of mind as well.

How We Tested and Selected These Water Cooling Cases

Here are the main factors we considered and the reasons we used them.

  • Hardware Compatibility: Ensure the case you go for supports your motherboard and offers sufficient clearance for components like the power supply and graphic cards. Look for ample space to accommodate all parts and manage cables, along with room for a water cooling system such as reservoir mounts or built-in reservoirs. 
  • Water Cooling and Space: Full tower cases offer ample room for components like pumps and radiators while mid-tower cases are also common for liquid cooling. Compact ITX cases are less prevalent due to limited space. Sufficient space allows for effective setup of cooling loops and accessories.
  • Aesthetic and Design: While functionality is key, showcasing your rig’s design is equally important to many. Personal preferences vary greatly, whether it’s a flashy black case with RGB lighting or a sleek white design. Case design also impacts its size and storage capacity for components and cables.
