I've run into a bit of a problem..

As you can see, I'm running out of space.. FAST!
I've looked around and haven't been able to find a case that looks like mine does - but bigger. I love my case, but I'm afraid it can no longer handle my disposable income tongue.gif

Its a Lian-Li PC-8FIB

Please don't suggest a corsair.

I actually have a WC setup laying around. But I've designed it so its the last thing I can fit in the case.. Problem being, it requires heavy modification to the case rolleyes.gif

-Removal of the installed HDD cage
-A 4 slot HDD cage that'll go in-front of the PSU (under the GPUs)
-5.25" reservoir/pump combo
-Move the SSD into the remaining 5.25 bay
-Mount 240 rad in the front & a 140 in the top
-Replace 2 front fans with PWM modded GentleTyphoon AP-29's (currently on HSF w/3rd as rear case fan)

But I have a Z77 board waiting to go in, when I install the WC. Eventually, I'd like to have the GTX560 Ti I have laying around in as physx and folding.. But I doubt I'll have room.

Step up to a larger Lian Li case. You get the same materials and build quality to which you're accustom but with more space for drives and graphics cards.

Alternatively, you could run a more conservative setup in your existing 8FIB, then arrange a new build for a home server / nightly backup machine.

I fail to see the problem. what are you doing that would exceed the capability of a pair of 7970's?

to me that looks like an efficient use of space. you are one of the few people who can justify using an ATX case... most people have alot more empty spaces in their case....

what do you feel is "missing" from your current system?

It looks like you got plenty of space, if you feel it doesn't then look at this perhaps http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112342 it looks like a larger version of the case you have.
