Default "An ATX Case Case" (yeah you read that right)

Is there such a thing as a case for an ATX case? Like a cushioned case with handle, kinda like a briefcase, that I can put my tower in to bring to lan parties and such? My case (to be) is pretty huge and heavy (in my sig).

I won't be going often, but at my school they host some LAN parties in the computer department several times a year.

I don't think there are cases designed for ATXs, but you can get an ATX with a handle. I had one, it is made by powmax. It was a cheap case, under 50 dollars if i remember.

nah, I wouldn't base my case purchase for LAN parties when it's going to be at my house 99.9&#37; of the time. I guess I can just use my duffel bag really.. but if anybody knows about a specific "case" designed for this, I'd like to know.

Best bet is to get a large, hard-shell suitcase and line it yourself.

Why not just liberate an old refrigerator box or something and make something that the machine can just slip into that you can carry it around in that will absorb the dings and bumps.

Temps should be fairly well with that "case". Looks like there's a few vents and a few fans to keep it down. Nice mod though, whoever made it.
