Anything Bigger?

I am wanting to mod a Giant PC Case.

The biggest one for a starting point i have found so far is http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-BAY-ATX-FULL-TOWER-SERVER-COMPUTER-CASE-wheels-NEW-/390261114893?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5add60080d

Computer case 8.5" x 16.5" x 26.5".

So help me.. Can we find a case taller then 26 inch? I would prefer it had removable sides but i can work with whatever..

(budget is 50-70 since i also have plans to paint and redo parts of whatever case i do find)

I WILL be posting a build-log and many pics when i do get started.

Thanks, AlderonnX

    Not really much room in the budget to look for larger cases.
    "CAN BE USED AS AN ATX, AT, LPX CASE WITH A LITTLE AMOUNT OF WORK"
    Makes you wonder if his defination of a little amount of work is the same as yours.
  2. Seems to be missing something on the backside when compared with most other cases.
  3. I thought this was going to be a bedroom incident when i read the title.
  4. wtf no mobo io plate cutout??????
  5. Yeah, that is gonna take some Modding for sure.

    I would have to put a new MoBo Tray and redo the entire back of the case.
  6. And just about as much work to get a decent fan/cooling setup

    My mom gave one of those to my grandfather well a case like that roughly 10 years ago when I was a little kid :/ Now my grandfather wants to build a new system in it.....
  10. Wow ! a fossil . for $ 70.oo max you'll be hard pressed to find a full tower case that meets your needs . I have seen old lian li server cases on craigs list occasionally and they are bigger . with the old formfactor psu opening and missing mobo io maybe you should pass on this one ? . I was in a scrap yard the other day and saw literally piles of old steel and aluminum cases . anywho I digress , good luck :)
