Best water cooling cases

Published

on

High-performance parts like the CPU and GPU get hot after extended gaming sessions and require cooling. Some buyers opt for air-cooled systems, while others prefer water-cooling to regulate their PC’s temperature. Both solutions work well, and it comes down to user preference.

If users run a water-cooled system, they need to consider the space required to fit it into the case. All-in-one units are the most straightforward water-cooling systems available, but they still require space for the radiator, water block, and tubes. More space is required if users want to install a more complex system to cool down other components like the GPU or motherboard. Apart from the physical space taken up by the water cooling components, there should be enough space for users to access other components.

Here are the best water cooling cases currently available. 

Best overall water cooling case

CORSAIR Crystal Series 680X

Corsair’s Crystal Series 680X is a dual-chamber case designed for optimal airflow, and it also has ample space for a water cooling system.

This case is designed to circulate air and keep the components cool. It comes with three 120-millimeter RGB fans on the front panel to suck in cold air and another 120-millimeter fan on the back to exhaust the hot air in the case. There’s also ventilation on the top of the case to allow warm air to escape.

Having a dual-chamber design makes the Crystal Series 680X easy to work in. One chamber contains the PSU, cabling, and drives, while the other chamber has fan and radiator mounts to keep the heat-sensitive components like the CPU and GPU from reaching high temperatures.

Users can add up to four radiators in the Crystal Series 680X. The top and bottom of the case can house a 240-millimeter or 280-millimeter radiator. There’s also space for either a 280-millimeter or 360-millimeter radiator on the front panel and either a 120-millimeter or 140-millimeter radiator on the back of the case.

Buyers can use Crystal Series 680X with air or water-cooled systems. It comes with built-in fans, and there’s ample space to add radiators and other water cooling components. The only drawback of this case is its high price, which might be out of reach for some users.

Best tempered glass water cooling case

Thermaltake View 71

Tempered glass cases make it easy for users to show off their build. Thermaltake’s View 71 has four smoked glass windows, allowing people to view the interior from all angles. The five-millimeter-thick side panels are hinged and swing open for easy access.

Some cooling features are built into the case. Like the Crystal Series 680X, the View 71 comes with three preinstalled 120-millimeter cooling fans on the front panel. There’s also a single 140-millimeter fan at the back of the case.

There’s enough space in this ATX case to install liquid cooling components. The entire case measures 22.7 by 23.3 by 10.8 inches (LxWxH), and it weighs 42.10 pounds. Users can add a single 360-millimeter or 420-millimeter radiator on the front, top, and right sides of this case. There’s also room for either a 120-millimeter or 140-millimeter fan on the back of the case and a 240-millimeter radiator on the bottom of the case.

The View 71 provides an excellent platform for a water-cooled build. It has enough space for multiple radiators and gives the option to mount them vertically. Being compatible with certain Thermaltake AIOs is another benefit of the View 71. This feature allows users to easily install a supported water cooling system without wondering if it will be compatible or not. 

Best dual-system water cooling case

Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D

Dual-system cases offer extended functionality because they allow users to have two complete systems in one. The Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D is an enormous case with space for two systems inside. One motherboard mounts in the typical vertical alignment, while a second, smaller motherboard rests horizontally on the bottom of the case.

One of the benefits of a dual-system case is that there’s enough space for complex cooling systems. The Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D measures 31.4 by 19.88 by 31.4 inches and has enough space to fit multiple radiators. In its standard form, the Obsidian Series 1000D can fit a single 140-millimeter, 280-millimeter, or 420-millimeter radiator on the top and front of the case. There’s also room for either a 240-millimeter or 120-millimeter fan on the back of the case.

If users buy additional trays, the radiator capacity increases. Both the top and front panel trays increase the capacity of the Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D and can fit up to two 120, 240, 260, or 480-millimeter radiators.

Despite its copious amounts of space and dual-system functionality, the Corsair Obsidian Series 1000D isn’t for everyone. It’s very bulky and expensive, so it’s only worth it for buyers who’ll use the dual-system functionality or need the space for an advanced build. 

Best open-air water cooling case

Thermaltake Core P90

Image via Thermaltake

Open-air cases have excellent airflow and are a fantastic way to show off a build. Thermaltake’s Core P90 has an unconventional design compared to most cases. Instead of looking like a rectangular box, the P90 is shaped like a triangular prism standing upright. Two sides of the triangle are for mounting equipment, and the other acts as the back of a conventional case with ventilation holes. Both sides house components and have five-millimeter-thick tempered glass windows to enhance the look.

The shape of the Core P90 gives users multiple options for its orientation and placement of components. Users can decide whether they want this case in a vertical, horizontal, or wall-mounted configuration. Having an open-air design means there’s less restriction on the height of radiators, and they can be installed vertically or horizontally. Like the View 71 case, users can choose between compatible Thermaltake AIO units supported by the Core P90.

The Core P90 is an ideal option for a water-cooled case because it lacks the space constraints of enclosed cases. On the other hand, it also has all the common disadvantages of open-air cases like attracting dust and being noisy. 

Best budget water cooling case

Cooler Master MasterBox TD500

Building a water-cooled PC doesn’t have to be expensive. The Cooler Master MasterBox TD500 is an affordable case with adequate space for air or water cooling. 

For a budget case, the MasterBox TD500 punches above its weight. Like on the more expensive 680X and View 71, it comes with three 120-millimeter RGB fans on the front panel and a single 120-millimeter non-RGB fan on the back panel. The left side of the case has a tempered glass panel, and the front has a mesh cover to allow better airflow while filtering out dust.

The MasterBox TD500 may be a budget case, but it includes an ARGB controller. Users can switch between colors and presets using the controller, and it also links up the fans with other components like the motherboard and lighting strips

Compared to cases like the Core P90 and Obsidian Series 1000D, there’s less space for water-cooling components. While the MasterBox TD500 is a smaller case, it can still accommodate a 360-millimeter radiator on the front panel and another 360-millimeter radiator on the top panel. There’s also 160-millimeters of space to add a CPU cooler.

Cooler Master’s MasterBox TD500 looks like a premium case despite its affordable price. It has enough space for two massive radiators and includes an ARGB controller. It might not have the most features compared to the other case on this list, but it has the best value.

New World team share details of upcoming server transfers in Q&A

Published

on

New World players have been eagerly awaiting news on the promised server transfers that Amazon Game Studios announced to remedy long server queues on launch. While they have been delayed, many questions were answered regarding the subject during a Q&A on the New World forum earlier today.

The Q&A took the most popular questions from the community regarding the server transfer service and provided some insight into its limitations, what players can expect, but sadly, no official date for it to join the game.

When server transfers are added to the game, all players will receive a single transfer token that is tied to the account, not character. This means that if you have multiple characters, you’ll only be able to transfer one. These tokens will be permanent so they can be used any time after distribution.

Amazon also confirmed that players will only be able to transfer between servers in the same region, but cross-region transfers are something the team is looking into for the future.

Something that players were worried about was not being able to transfer into servers that are currently marked ‘full,’ but the team attempted to ease fears of this by sharing that many servers will have the ‘full’ tag removed over the coming days.

“We monitor full status on a daily basis with changes as recently as today,” the spokesperson wrote. “’Full’ doesn’t indicate a server that always has queues, it indicates a server that during typical peak usage has a substantial queue. We will be relaxing Full status on many worlds when transfers start, to allow the most flexibility possible. After transfers have slowed down we will re-evaluate which worlds might still need the designation.”

If server transfers overwork a server, the team said they will re-evaluate and hand out new transfer tokens to players where necessary.

There were plenty of other questions answered so if you’d like to know what was said in detail you can check out the Q&A here.

NoPing releases its Dota 2 roster, will reform for next DPC season

Published

on

NoPing e-sports and its Dota 2 rosters have agreed to part ways ahead of the next Dota Pro Circuit season. In a statement, NoPing said it will be fielding a new roster for the next season, but the organization has no news to share at the moment. 

This is the second top-level South American roster to split with its sponsor organization in order to pursue other opportunities, following Thunder Predator doing the same following The International 10. 

“By decision of all players in the team, we will not continue with the current lineup,” NoPing said. “We respect the decision and wish success to the players that took the NoPing VPN name to various achievements in Dota 2.” 

Neither NoPing nor the players—William “hFn” Medeiros, Gonzalo “Darkmago” Herrera, Oscar Chavez, Farith “Matthew” Puente, and Jose “Panda” Padilla Hernandez—specified why the decision was made, but it is likely due to the team failing to qualify for TI10. Even though they were one of three teams from SA to make it to a Major, finishing ninth at the WePlay AniMajor, they flamed out in the regional qualifiers, losing to Infinity and Team Unknown.

It is also unclear if the players wish to continue playing together or if they will disband entirely and look to find teams elsewhere rather than pursuing a new sponsor together. Here are the players that are now looking for a new home. 

With this announcement, only beastcoast and SG esports remain untouched among the top four teams in SA, meaning they have an edge heading into the next DPC season if their squads remain together. The ex-TP players did note that they would continue playing together, so even if they don’t find a new sponsor they will likely still be a force in the region.

Call of Duty: Mobile season 9 is called Nightmare

Published

on

Call of Duty: Mobile’s season nine is almost here. The new season will be called Nightmare, Activision revealed today, as Halloween is right around the corner.

As usual, a lot of new content is dropping with the season. This includes a Battle Pass (BP) which contains a new operator, weapon, blueprints, calling cards, charms, and more.

At tier 14 of the free BP, players will be able to get the Tak-5 Operator Skill. This skill gives players the ability to heal their team in battle. Besides this, players will be able to get the Swordfish at tier 21. This tactical rifle was first seen in Black Ops 4 and is now making its way to CoD: Mobile as well.

Modern Warfare’s Havoc Sawmill will be the new map for season nine. Additionally, the Halloween Standoff is returning to the game for a limited time as well to mark the festival.

Later in the season, players will also be able to unlock a new weapon, tactical equipment, and battle royale class through seasonal challenges. The weapon is called Thumper, which is a grenade launcher with just one ammunition. Flash Drone is the new tactical equipment that blinds enemies. Finally, the Pumped BR Class gives players a jetpack to take to the skies.

The season will last for about a month. The new content will be available gradually throughout season nine, Nightmare.
