( I moved this from the modding forum )
I am about to build a new system with a z77 mobo and 3570K processor but I am having a hard time deciding on a case to buy. I am going to
water cool the system at some point so I need a case with lots of room. The MM extended u2-ufo case looks interesting and so does the silverstone tj-11.
has anyone had any experience with the MM cases? Thanks for any advice.

Not a shill here but......I highly recommend you check out the CoolMaster Stryker Full Size case. TONSSS of room and the build quality is....well, you won't find any better.

Check out the reviews over at Amazon and you will see.

If you hate having a bird's nest of wiring in the middle of you case, this is the case for you.

Thanks for the reply! My current computer is in a CM Stacker 830 so I am sure the CM storm is great. If I went with a tower case I will
need to mount my tube res somehow and I am not sure how that is done. Do you water cool your CM storm?

I don't water cool but there is room for a 240mm resevoir on the lower, right side of the case.

I plan on using the Dark Knight II heatsink. It's big but I got the case that can handle it!!

I mostly love the one inch bump they molded into the sides of my case. Gives extra room behind the mobo for ALL of my wiring and the other side gets extra space for my Dark Knight II heatsink which will need it.

If you go to the CoolMaster website, you can download the manual for the Storm Stryker and easily see how you mount a 240mm resevoir.

Sounds like a good heatsink. Got any pics of your build?
