If you plan to watercool check out the CoolerMaster Stacker. IMO it's one of the best cases to watercool on the market.

In terms of overall quality, while Antec cases are pretty good, they don't hold a candle to Lian-li. If you're considering the V series, go with a V2000, as the 1000 series are a bit cramped and airflow (even for water cooling) can be an issue..

You can't go wrong with the CM Stacker 830. Lots of airflow, and has tons of room for watercooling

Lian Li has the best quality of any case, hands down. And a lot of great cases to choose from.

I just got my Lian Li and I love it. It is a V1000 Plus. It is by far the nicest and most well constructed case I have ever seen. I you want the best of quality then as others have said lian li is the way to go. But also as others have said the stacker is supposed to be one of the easiest and best cases out there to watercool so the ultimate decision is up to you.Desktop
