Which Red Case Should I Get?

Okay so I have purchased a motherboard and all the other components. My mother board is an Asus Maximus V Extreme which is a extended ATX motherboard. I'm water cooling with red coolant to stick with the motherboard's scheme. I'm having trouble finding a good looking red case that will fit extended ATX. This is my first build fyi. My graphics card is a EVGA GTX 680 if that makes much of a difference. My radiator will be external. Also, when I say red, I don't necessarily mean completely red, it can be black with red accents such as red fan blades or red trim. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, I'll take it for consideration. But a window would be nice :p 

EDIT

The Phantom does actually support E-ATX, if you decide you can forgo the window.

How about picking a case you like regardless of colour and painting it your preferred shade of vermilion yourself?

Good call. I didn't look at the board specs. My vote's in for the DF-85 :kaola: 

Add a red fan to the side, put a red led stick in it..... I'll take picks of mine when I get home so he can see it all glowing and stuff.

In the homebuild section,
whilst building take a ton of pictures, some may never get posted but its better to have them and not need than the other way round :) 
check out some build logs here and around the net to get an idea of what folks do, but its basically photocataloguing your experience and showing off the finished result ofc :p
