    My water-cooling case concept

    This may not be the best category to post this in, but oh well.

    Since the beginning of last february, I've been designing a line of cases aimed at water-coolers that would still be great for air-coolers.

    I hope to pitch these cases to Antec, so a positive response here would be a big help.

    There's the typhoon, aimed at people who want a smaller WC setup. ($120-140 retail)

    • mid-tower form factor
    • 240mm radiator capacity internally
    • ATX/mATX motherboard compatible
    • ample cable management space
    • space for 3 HDDs/SSDs (hot-swap)
    • easy-remove drive bay covers
    • washable air filters
    • 3 fans included


    All feedback, suggestions, questions, and kind words are welcome.

    There's also the Maelstrom for advanced/hardcore WCers ($180-220).

    • Full tower form factor
    • 2x 360mm radiators plus 120mm radiator internal capacity
    • ATX/EATX/XL-ATX compatible (9 pci slots)
    • ample cable management space
    • Space for 6 HDDs/SSDs (hot-swap)
    • Easy-remove drive slot covers
    • Washable air filters
    • 5 fans included

    They're concepts I designed. I want to pitch them to Antec.

    I think they would be good cases for anyone who wants high airflow, is considering WCing, or is an avid Wcer. Being so flexible is, in my opinion, their best feature. They should also be significantly cheaper than the 800D and the TJ07

    I'm probably going to redesign the Typhoon door to add more intakes/radiator slots in the next week. I think the maelstrom door style looks better anyway.

    Ever think about trying to add water cooling holes for the tubes to the side where the gpu's are??? just wondering, never did WC cause I cant afford it, but Id preferably myself would think about tubing holes on the side always wondered why it wasnt done. Cause mainly every case has that air duct that isnt even used.

    I think I know what you're talking about and some cases do have holes for tubing next to the pci slots on the back. Almost all Antec gaming cases have them. However, they would only do you good with an external radiator.

    Well, TBH Looks like Corsair stole ur case =P

    400R Mid-Tower Case

    Has my idea too haha, but urs looks great too tbh, And I see what u mean about the holes and external radiator, but like I said I dont know anything at all about LC but could just give my 2cents. Thanks for letting me know man. Also I Like this for sure though, antec used to be my Case of choice, but most of their parts started becoming plastic, so when I built my new rig, I had to goto Coolermaster, for the Haf x for sure. Can you really deny a all metal rig with some Very hard plastic? lol.

    My old rig still uses a Antec 900 V1 where it has the Headers mic and power button all the grounded together or w/e the problem was, as in the very first 900 not v1/v2/v3 the VERY first one XD. And a TPQ650 PSU wich might of went, but antec nicely gave me a new one regardless of the new model TP 650. Great guys, Always chattin with them. I hope ur idea works out man and you pitch it.

    Thanks for the update, but Corsair's case can only mount fans on the side panel. Both of the cases I designed will have brackets to hang a radiator on the drive storage tower and suck in air through the side panel.

    Most of the case will be metal. The only plastic parts are the top and front pieces, just like the old Antec 900.

    Like I said, a large and positive feedback here will be a big help. I really hope I get Antec to bring them to market.

    I actually like that Typhoon. I have a mini P180 right now and I have a radiator mounted to the back...I hate it. I've never mounted an external rad before now and I don't think I'll do it again. It is always getting in the way and it looks ugly to me. If I could have a similar case with the rad mounted internally I would be a much happier camper.
