I'm having a very hard time picking my first water cooled build case!

I'm going with 90% ROG hardware, and the rest will be EKWB, Barrowch, Samsung and so on.

I wanted the CaseLabs sm8 or a Lian Li V3000wx but can't find either one for sale!

so now I'm stuck between choosing between...

Case: ASUS ROG Strix Helios GX601 - Black
or
Case: Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL- Black

Please help and tell me the better of the two cases and the reason for your pick.

THANK YOU ALL in advance for YOUR help and SUPPORT! :clap:

notarat thank you for your reply, could you please tell me why the Lian Li 011 Dynamic XL- Black is your choice over the Rog Helios?
The more detail the better :)

I think the Helios is a fair case but you're paying a lot for the ROG logo. You've got like a $100 markup for little in terms of added features. If you like it and don't mind that something is objectively a poor value because it appeals to you for other reasons, then go for it.

Thanks Fonda for the advice! 👍
I finally made my decision on a case it's not even listed in this thread 😝
I went with the Lian Li PC-V3000wx

It reminds me of the CaseLabs sm8 and I loved that case a lot! Unfortunately CaseLabs closed it doors about a year ago now. But this Lian Li is very close in style and quality build.

Nice choice:thup: Where did you find it? I can't seem to dig up a place to buy...

Looking forward to seeing some pics of your build.:popcorn:

I bought it in the UK and had it shipped to me here in the US.
it arrived a couple of days ago and I have to tell you it is one of the most beautiful cases I have ever seen extremely well-built and incredible to look at!

On YouTube is where I got a first look and knew this to be my case!

Here is a link to where I bought this amazing case!

Very nice case Fonda!
The RGB in front with the large venting strips looks great! I can see why you would want this case!👍
