    Help choosing a case

    Hey folks, I need your help in selecting a case to upgrade my current Corsair 800D.
    I'm upgrading this build: http://www.dazmode.com/_forum/showth...-project/page1

    I've upgraded the Aquaero to a 6XT and the CPU from a 3930k to a 4960X.
    I'm also waiting for the new 2080 Nvidia cards to come out to upgrade the dual titans I currently run.

    Now this being said. When I play games on my 3 x 27'' (1920x1080) monitors, the water temps are getting a bit too toasty to my taste (43-45oC).
    So I'm looking at upgrading my build to the following:

    1x and possibly 2x Quad 120 rads and I already have a triple 120 rad

    Also adding a second D5 pump and a dual d5 pump top

    I was looking at the new Phantek Enthoo Elite. It's a gorgeous case, but no place where I could put my Aquaero and PowerAdjust modules. The 5.25 bays attach to the upper right corner of the case, blocking rad installation. I was also considering Caselab SMA8 or TH10, but can't find those in stock anywhere (quick ship versions). If I ordered now, it would be end of April before I get the case.

    Any suggestions?

    Is that the famous Venom build case? I'm considering options right now. SMH10 would fit the bill. How much?

    Yes, this is decommissioned Venom.

    You can send your offer trough store, whatever you think fair. If that fair for me as well, we can check on other details.

    You consider 43-45 ░C toasty? My cards and CPU seem to run at that (or even higher sometimes) when I game as well, and I have 720mm of thick rads with push/pull fans. I think that's about normal for Maxwell cards at least (I'm running 2 980 Tis overclocked, and a 5930K @ 4.55GHz)
