Cheapish, 280 rad compatible, small ATX compatible cases?

Sun Mar 11, 2018 12:59 am

Can anyone recommend a cheap/reasonably price case that'll take a 280mm rad? Preferably top or back mounted for exhaust.

Fractal Design Define C is compact and reasonably priced (to me)

I'm assuming that "small ATX" means compact ATX and not mATX....if you meant mATX, then the Fractal Design Define Mini C still supports two 280mm rads.

I can't vouch for those guys, but they do have a bunch of suggestions listed. Fractal Design Focus G is mentioned there, and it's under $50 at Newegg, so maybe that one?

I have a Fractal Design Node 804 (µATX) and a NZXT Kraken X62 (280mm). It fits, but not with much space to spare.
