    The title says it all.

    My requirements are:-

    MUST be internal, preferably in the front (I don`t require an optical drive) but a top mount is acceptable.

    Minimum amount of modding. Moving drive bays etc isn`t a problem but I don`t really want to have to totally rip the front / top to bits.

    Has to be portable. What I mean is the case has to be smaller than a full tower.


    I`ve seen a few cases that look suitable but I can`t find any information with regards to my requirements. Lots of cases with double rad mounts in the front and top, not too many ready for a triple.

    I hope this is in the correct section

    Isn`t the V2000 a full tower?

    You are asking to fit a fairly large radiator into a smallish case. After a quick google I have came across the Coolermaster Centurion 590, a cheap case but should easily fit a triple 120 rad in the front although you would have to find another place to mount your hard drive(s).

    I`m impressed by your suggestion. I found some information here

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/CoolerMaster/Centurion_590/4.html

    I think it will go straight into the front after I`ve constructed a bracket to hold it in place, straight after I remove/alter the I/O panel at the top.


    It`s going to be filled with an i7 930 in a Asus P6T V2 or a Gigabyte UD3R
    and 6GB Corsair Dominator 1600 RAM.....or at least that`s the idea.
