Hey Guys, I've just ordered an Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360 and I'm in doubt whether it supports Corsair 465x case (Front mounted).

Are there any other cases in this price range that I can buy?

Thanks in advance

It supports:
-360mm;280mm at the front
-240mm at the top
-120mm at the back
So in short,yes it supports it.

Edit: Take a look yourself: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Cases/Software-Control-and-Monitoring-Cases/iCUE-465X-RGB-Mid-Tower-ATX-Smart-Case/p/CC-9011189-WW
Thanks for your fast answer!
Arctic's radiator is 38mm thick without the fans, with the fans it increases to 63mm. Is there enough clearance because of the PSU shroud in this case?
Here's a photo that shows the PSU clearance.

Im pretty sure that Corsair wouldnt advertise the radiator support for the case if it werent true.In other words,if corsair says that it supports 360mm radiators,im pretty sure that they meant with fans also.There is a "HDD cage needs to be removed" warning on the link i sent you,when you are looking at radiator support section.

That looks like a very nice case that I would be reluctant to change out.
What will be inside that needs 360 aio cooling?

The case has 170mm headroom for a top twin tower air cooler that will be the equivalent of a 280 aio.

If you want a aio, be careful how you need to mount it.
The coolant outflow must be below the pump to prevent air cavitation.

I am using Ryzen 9 5900x and I'm planning to overclock it to as far as I can. It outputs around ~200watts under full load. My motherboard of choice is Asus Strix B550-F WiFi.
Maybe I should consider another case like Lian Li PC-O11 for it's better looks and also better cooling capabilities using 2 sets of Lian Li Uni SL120 fans.

There are better looking cases in my opinion,but i gotta admiy 011 is a beauty.I've recently watched Linus' video about the smaller version of the 011,you should go check it out,he also used those fans u mentioned.

Arctic is a very thick AIO at 63mm (with the fans) and I don't think there is enough clearance if you mount it on top, It maybe hit VRM heatsinks or ram modules. Lemme know if I'm wrong
