I need a huge case, with many openings to install extra cooling. I don't need any fancy features but I would like 2 USB 3.0 slots and an eSATA slot. I would like something like the Lian Li PC-343B Modular Cube Case with the many slots for drives. It needs to have at least 8 expansion slots, support an EATX motherboard, and I need room for a 149.225x79.375x92.075mm psu and a 279.4x(dual slot)x111.1504mm I don't want anything like a skeleton case. Liquid cooling support would be nice, if not, I'm sure it has fan holes. I don't care what it looks like but if you can actually find a pretty one I will worship you. An HDD cage would be nice, also cable routing holes and other ways to hold wires. I think that's all I need, All the good ones I see have 7 expansion slots or they don't support an EATX motherboard.

I am looking at the Lian Li PC-X2000F and PC-V750. They are great, what others are like it. Which one is better?

My computer:
Spoiler
Asus Z9PE-D8 WS motherboard
2 x Intel Xeon E5-2687W 3.1GHz Eight Core 20MB 150W (probably going to overclock)
Kingston 128GB DDR3-1333 REG ECC (8x16GB)
2 x NVIDIA Geforce GTX 690 4GB SLI
2 x PNY Quadro Plex 7000 (I will shut down this driver and unplug it when not in use, but yeah I'm so going to run both graphics cards together =) ) (external, goes into PCI-E)
Asus Xonar DX PCI-E sound card
Intel RS2BL080 RAID Controller (PCI-E SATA 6Gb/s 8 Channel RAID 60,50,10,6,5,1,0)
Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB SATA 6Gb/s Primary disk
Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB SATA 6Gb/s Secondary disk 1
480GB Intel 520 SSD 2.5 inch (SATA III) Secondary disk 2
E-Power EP-2KW 2000 Watt power supply (this will hang outside no matter what, 2 parts)
I'll find the latest and greatest Windows Server OS and dual boot Unbuntu
2 x Asus 12x Blu-ray Burner SATA (black)
ATech PRO-35U USB 2.0 Internal/External Card Reader
Intel Battery Backup Unit for RS2BL-Series (BBU8) (for RAID)
Koolance radiator, 9x120mm 18-FPI Aluminum and all liquid cooling accessories
maybe a few other drives if I have room

I like that one. I will probably expand so the size is awesome. One thing though, I can't figure out my max radiator size. Not like I can't mount it to the side if I screw up though. I'm looking at their other cases though.
