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!

  3. The Phantom does actually support E-ATX, if you decide you can forgo the window.
  4. Thanks, any other suggestions would be great!

    PS. its quite easy to fit a window your self.
  7. How about picking a case you like regardless of colour and painting it your preferred shade of vermilion yourself?

    well it's not really Extended ATX though look at the specs still now that i checked the case better i think it won't fit

    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.

  20. Although expensive. I like the "Thermaltake Level 10 GT (VN10001W2N) Black Steel SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans-1x 200mm Colorshift side fan, 1x 200mm Colorshift top fan, 1x 200mm Colorshift front fan and 1x 140mm rear fan"

  21. I prefer the real Level 10, plastic one doesn't do it for me but I'd take one as a gift to mod,
    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/InWin/Dragon_Rider/ takes E-Atx, mods nicely and has several radiator mounting options

    This is my first build and I'm also new to tomshardware. So what section would a build log go under? Any tips? Thanks :D
  27. 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
