Hey all!, i was just wondering which case would be good for the following components, (would be off course a full case/large tower)

Intel Core i7 3630k

Asus Rampage IV Extreme

Kingston 120gb HyperX SSD

Seagate Barracude 2x2TB

Kingston DDR3 16GB 4x4gb 2133mhz

XFX Radeon HD 7970 (might get another one for crossfire)

LG Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Burner (BH10LS30)


The website i'm custom building for has the following case brands:
Antec
Bitfenix
Cooler Master
Thermaltake
NZXT
Fractal
Corsair
Enermax


You can check the cases here:

You just have to select the no PSU included case :D 

I just need a case that when i wanted to upgrade i could get another Radeon 7970 + Get water cooling, also if it has a window on the side + great cooling would be even better (:

Thank you in advance (:

just did my new build in a coolermaster storm trooper and would highly recomend it

best case i have had --and i have had a few

though it doesnt have a window --new side panels with a window have been released

i narrowed it down to that case or the coolermaster cosmos 2 ultra--but that case was just too dear even

though it looks like a fantastic case

spend an extra $50 and get the CoolerMaster Cosmos II Ultra imo

Fanatastic case all round, only niggle might be the size/weight

the CoolerMaster Cosmos II Ultra is a great case

but in the uk its almost 2.5 times the price of the storm trooper

storm trooper £120

Cosmos II Ultra £300 plus

i couldnt justify that price difference when the storm trooper is a great case anyway
