A Great Watercooling Friendly Case
The Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 was built with
watercooling in mind, and in that regard it is tuned for low noise, easy
integration of watercooling hardware, and has enough room for even the wildest
of tangles of tubing to twist and turn. If you watercool your PC, this is
the only computer case you should be looking at. All components in the 3D Aurora
570 come together to serve the greater purpose - large slow moving case

nickel-plated steel rear panel to the case - too many times have we experienced case screws stripping out flimsy aluminum threads! The large Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 retails for $188 CDN ($168 US, £88GBP) without a power supply, but don't like the high price tag scare you, it's a really great case.
