It's a nice idea, but really - 10 years?

A hell of a lot can change in 10 years mate.

Xigmatek Elusium
Has lots of water cooling potential without costing $$$$.
Very spacious, supports HPTX and every other board format for that matter.
Roof fits 60mm thick 360/420 rad in p/p.
Front can do 480 if you get rid of the HDD cages.
Silent with stock fans.
A breeze to move around with the wheels equipped.

I own it and it's great and price is very friendly when put aside of other alternatives. Plus you won't feel bad tossing it out when you get tired of looking at it for it was so cheap.

Both the Xigmatek Elusium and the Corsair 900D look frickin amazing! The Corsair 900D is huge!

Like someone else said tho, 10 years? A. A lot can change. B You might get tired of looking at it in 10 years. C. The thing is massive in size.

The corsairs are nice but I have a CM HAF 932 right now and I have had it for about 4 years. Good luck getting a case to last you 10 years; I just rebuilt a new computer in the CM case and I am itching to get rid of it for something new to look at. Things change, why not change with them?
