Default Looking for something.....

Any one know of a site that sells cases that are a little bit bigger than a full sized atx tower? Don't ask why i need a case that big, i just need one thats that big and it needs to be under $300 -.-

Or possibly one of them big cube cases?

Im thinking ill just "make" a case..... Buy 2 cases, on one of them ill take the right panel off and on the other take the left panel off and just slap them together, have Oak wood around the entire thing..... Don't sound to hard and it will give the extra room i need and want..... But the reason i want a lot of room is because im buying an extremly powerfull water pump and 3 rather large radiators in the next 5 months. lol

If your doing that why don't you just make it entirely out of wood,Just rip apart an old case for the mobo tray and the 5-1/4 bay holder,That way you can build it to any size you want

Because im lazy and not good with measuring things..... Or cutting things correctly.....


EDIT: Plus i will need a total of 8, 5.25 drive bays, 4 of them would be for the water resorviors the other 4 would be for the hard drive cooler and dvd drives i have.

not only that but wood is a pretty bad material to build cases it from although it has been done.

Didn't think those cases had gotten that cheap...guess I shoulda checked first..last time I saw it was quite some time ago and I know it was $500

My friends got one, watercooled as well...here's a rather low quality pic I took at last saturdays LAN

sexy -.-

I could buy the lumber and the two cases i would be using for about $200...... So it would be cheaper to put the cases together and put a wooden shell around it. Not the greatest at helping with the cooling but on well. -.-
