No, it's not. But if your looking for that orientation, then maybe an M8, but they start at 419$. I listed the S8 because it's their newest case and a hot ticket item. The magnum will be replaced in about a year with the Gemini series

I edited that last post, but I'll post them here also.

Measurements:

S3: 10.5"Wx15"Dx15.5"H
40 Liters volume

540: 13"Wx16Dx18"H
61 Liters Volume

My bad I actually was thinking s5 and typed s3. Doing a little more digging the s5 is slightly smaller than the 540. But if u get the extended top panel they are virtually the same size. The s5 just uses the space better.

And no the MB is only horizontal but u can always get the top window option so you van still see the CPU block

In fact, I have a tape measure here, I'll go measure now, stand by for an edit with the dimensions to each.

Edit: Measurements

S3: 10.5"Wx15"Dx15.5"H

540: 13"Wx16Dx18"H

That's why I figured it was odd because the 540 can support ATX and the S3 is mini ITX.

Anyway, I'll probably take a look at the S8 if I get the top panel and some other features. Can I get the switches in custom colors?

Sorry to derail this thread. :/

No, but they are a standard Vandal style switch. So you can have them left out and supply the ones you want. The power is a 22mm w/blue ring, and the reset is the 19mm w/red dot

Go take a look here:

Thanks for all the help. I'll be asking my questions over there. However, considering my needs right now and how I could be spending my budget elsewhere I'm leaning towards the 540 and hopefully will be joining the club soon. smile.gif
