that's a Lian-Li PC-V1000 (I have one of them). except they don't usually have a Window like that. that one's been modded.

it is a good quality case, and has a very different design. the motherboard mounts upside-down, the hard drives and PSU are at the bottom in their own compartments, and it is very spacious and has good ventilation.

however it is a fairly expensive case. $199 on newegg

Oh, wow. Yes, I like the colors but I was more impressed with the look of the case itself. I've got a P180 and I thought that looked good...

Mind taking a picture of your case then?

if I can find a digital camera, I will. but the system inside is not currently working though. although what you want to see is the case, so that won't matter.

I found one with a window at Xoxide for $243 dollars. I think I would want the black one instead of silver.

it has heaps of holes at the front, which is good for ventilation. it doesn't make the case weak at all though.

you can see that it is basically upside-down from the back. you also put in the PSU from the back.

the thumbscrews for the sidepanel are attached to the case, so you won't lose them.

the inside of the case. you can see its layout. (this is from the right side)

the hard drive bay can hold 6 hard drives, and they go in sideways like this. it also has a 120mm fan cooling them (I replaced the ones it came with with some Thermaltake blue LED fans)

Wow, that is a nice looking case. From the looks of the insides, your motherboard looks real small. Is that the case that can hold the extended motherboard or w/e? Also, how big is the case? It looks like it goes back pretty far. Like I said I've got the P180 so my PSU is at the bottom like that but I don't know if my motherboard is upsidedown.

Sorry, my conversions are bad. The P180 demensions are...

21.3"(H) x 19.9"(D) x 8.1"(W)

Do you have those demsions in inches? Or convert the inches to mm. I don't know off the top of my head the conversion.

EDIT

I figured it out.

541.02(H) x 505.46(D) x 205.74(W)
