    I am planning to get MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio graphic card and Corsair Hydro H100i PRO AIO cooler next month or later but these wont fit in my current 13 years old case Apevia X-Plorer Silver Neon Midi Tower bought back in 2005.

    So I am looking for a new tempered glass case to fit MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio graphic card, Corsair Hydro H100i PRO AIO cooler and Pioneer Blu-ray drive but all case user manuals are very poor written. There are few cases I like:

    Bequiet Pure Base 600 Window

    Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass

    Thermaltake Versa H26 Tempered Glass Edition

    https://www.thermaltake.com/Chassis...8/Versa_H26_Tempered_Glass_Edition/Design.htm

    It seem Versa H26 is my first prefer case, accorded to Thermaltake Versa H26 spec with GPU clearance is 310mm but if you look at pictures in gallery there are plenty of empty space. MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio graphic card which is 327mm long surely can fit in it?

    Bequiet Pure Base 600 Window is my second prefer case, I would need to remove 1 or 2 HDD cages space for MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio graphic card to fit in. Not sure if 360mm radiator can be use on top of case like it can be done with Thermaltake Versa H26 while I can still use Blu-ray drive?

    Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass is my third prefer case so I am really not sure whether or not 240mm Corsair Hydro H100i PRO AIO cooler can fit on top of case while have only 1 5.25 inch drive. If it cant fit, I am not sure what the length Corsair Hydro H100i tube is and whether it can use on the front case?

    Though decisions, don't know how reliable these cases so I like to hear comments from you or owned these cases.
