I am trying to chose a case for my i7. I am going to be using this motherboard:

GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

I like this style of case but dont know if it would work:

Thermaltake LANBOX Lite VF6000BWS Black SECC Japanese steel Gaming Cube Computer Case - Retail


Any suggestions of better cases along this style that would work? Or just better cases overall?

The motherboard you linked as stated in the description has an ATX form factor.
The case, as shown in the specifications section supports micro-ATX and mini-ITX form factors. So it will not support standard ATX, which is that motherboard.

If you are set on that motherboard you will not be able to find a case that small. You will be stuck with cases that support ATX.

You have two options.

1. Purchase a micro-atx motherboard for the micro-atx case.

2. Purchase an an atx mid-tower case for the atx motherboard.

Isn't freedom of choice great? :D
