Default Case suggestion

This is going to happen later on but im sure the case i decide to go with wont disappear between now and Christmas.

Anyways i have a custom Single Stage Phase Unit thats put in a steel box like you see these pre-made Vapochill units. Was wondering what kind of case would be great for installing a phase unit into it. I prefer mid tower but i know itll be bigger than that for this project. So for LANs ive just decided to make a seperate build in mini-itx which is also slated for later.

Anyways what i want is a top mounted PSU, room for a water loop and SLI video cards, and an under carriage that i can either clean out for phase, or something already built with phase in mind.

There are alot of cases that have places under where the mobo tray is that hold either HDDs or HDDs and PSU.

Here is a rough example of what i mean.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

That little under area where the PSU goes.

hmm, well there don't appear to be very many that have the layout you want.

i found this one
Newegg.com - NZXT WHISPER WHI - 001BK Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
psu would go on the bottom, but it looks like it would have a good bit of room if you gutted the bottom out.

or there's always the big freaking haf case
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
psu would go up top, extra room on the bottom.

i'll keep lookin around.

Yea ive seen a few Lian Li cases like that where i could probably mod the top to hold the PSU instead. Or if it would be safe to hang the compressor upside down i could just mount it on top and keep the PSU on the bottom.
