Any case that fits micro-Atx and upwards will do, whats the rest of the hardware?
**Edit sorry, my googling gave me results for the Gene, which is the M-Atx plate, my bad :) 
Thanks Jack, good catch mate :)

@Motopsychojdn
I read a lot of rumors people find it difficult to find a chasis/case that would fit E-ATX Motherboards.

BTW Here's my rig:

Ram: Corsair 16GB 1600 Quad Channel Kit
Cooler : Corsair H100
GPU: Asus GTX 680 Direct CU II OC
Mobo: Asus Rampage IV Extreme
CPU: i7 3930K
PSU: SilverStone Stider Gold 850Watts

EATX is the same height as ATX (30.5), but a little wider (27.x instead of 24.x). Not counting openings for cable management, almost any ATX case should fit.

However you can easily check manufacturer specifications to make sure even the cable management openings aren't covered by an EATX board. Just look into some cases you like in the first place.

Some good cases:

Corsair 800D
NZXT Phantom
NZXT Switch 810
Fractal Design Define XL
BitFenix Colossus
....

Some LianLi and Silverstone cases are good options, too.

I gotta argue with Moto above as a mini-ATX chassis is certainly not going to fit an EATX MoBo.....An ATX chassis won't fit an ATX board, you need an EATX chassis.

How much ya wanna spend ?

@joshua,phantom is one of my favorite case,moto is a cable management geek so keep it tidy :) 
and i won't suggest level 10 GT because-
recently saw it on a nearby shop and the things that i noticed:
pros-
great build quality and looks,the case is sturdy and looks bad as hell.
color changer fans look cool and suck plenty of air.
good cable management and can fit large graphic card(s)
roomy enough to fit a high end *air cooled* system.
hot swap drives,headphone holder and other stuff is common now days but still looks cool.
pros-
expensive and not worth a $300 price tag(you can it cheaper may be $290 or so)
looks big,very heavy, but still not enough room to fit a heavy watercooling loop.the best you can do without cutting your case is-

there are a lot of other cases that are cheaper and provide similar(or better) features.
side window is too small to show off things.
bottom line don't get level 10 GT unless it's a personal preference because you can get the same features for less.
good luck with your choice ;)

+1, I am the C.management monster here on Toms :) 
and if you ever bought a level ten, it should only be the Aluminium proper one, not the plastic GT,
I'm just waiting for some kind person to donate me one to mod hehe
Are you listening Thermaltake????

hey can you tell me one thing,is it possible to fit a 360mm and at least a 120mm rad in level 10 gt?

120's go anywhere,
you should manage a 360 up top with the first portion inside the optical drive cage, I can't find any pics on the nets where anyones done it though

yeah but if we do some modding then we can put rads out side of the case but rads hanging out of case look ugly.still for watercooling,800D,TJ07,TJ11 and Swtich are best IMO.

Modding is always an option with me man, you should know that :) 
I tend not to look at a case as a finished item, more as a baseline for me to start from

I once modded a kitchen into the Pc but the Cable management was a nightmare so I took it back out, shame really the fridge and oven bits were great :p 


after kitchen removal,

It may be evolving further soon, we may be moving the Pc's into a different room so I have plans for a centralised chiller box/res feeding both of our Pc's loops :) 
means a W/c loop for the Gf on my pocket ofc but I don't mind hehe

Actually I was looking for a Cosmos II or TJ11 as my case but they're both out of stock. I might sell this phantom full tower case if Cosmos II will be available hehe

@Op nice progress shots man, looks like I'm not the only one to measure the DCII with a tape and go 'Dayumm' :p 
maybe post a build log on here with some text for the pics, and then some finished pics in the members gallery?
