Will do a super build based upon new Intel Quad 3.5 chip and set for 64bit. Will have liquid and fan cooling. Needs lots of room to alter design and figure out best monster board needed. Lots of bays, holes, slots and room for at least four harddrives, solid states, opticals, system monitoring modules, pretty lights. Case must be on rollers. Color will bel Barclay Purple. Don't want to go over $500.

Any use to you? its pretty versatile and I'm trying not to buy one myself
(Need to downsize my rig:p )
no wheels but modding a set of castors on wouldn't be difficult and if you want to paint/colour it purple you still have plenty from the $500 budget left
and it will take up to XL-Atx mobos,
I think you'll be hardpushed to find exactly what you want though in regards to features, a little modding may be necessary whichever case you get
lian li do some nice variants http://www.silverpcs.com/index.php?cPath=98_109&osCsid=...

Well, you won't find anything in Barclay purple.
You could possibly paint the case later.....
The AZZA he linked will be fine for what you want, other than the paint.

thank you. I was looking at a Case Labs model, but their ST10 is a pure erector set. I looks like several brands go that way. the biggest problem I worry about is the drill holes in the proper places to fit the components. I've heard this as a major complaint. I'll be using a two reservoir liquid cooling with a 560mm radiator and lots of fans. (My current system overheats like crazy at 3 of 6 sensor points). Thank you so much for the wisdom.

As for the Barclay Purple: This is a special purple formulated by my inventor/industrialist grandfather, Fletcher W. Browning. I'm doing it in his honor. The build will be called "The Fletcher".

Nods to family are always a nice addition to a project :) 
if you don't have holes where you want them, you can drill 2-3mm holes for mobo-sized/hard drive screws and use the screw to thread them,
brackets can be used for mounts and are as simple as grabbing a right angle section or even old meccano parts, modding is about thinking outside the box to get the result you want,
the 560 won't fit in that case, it supports a 480 but for my plans I'd envisioned two maybe three 360's in that top section and that more than enough rad for most schemes,
but if you check the W/c sticky and decide on your cooling requirements, I can help plan the mods needed to accomodate your plans,
