Looking for a Reverse ATX case

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have been on the hunt lately for a case with the motherboard facing right, namely because I want to be able to see into my computer and its not really a possibility to put it on the right side of me.

My rig is in my sig (Black Jarvis), standard ATX motherboard.

I already know about the Bitfenix Outlaw and not only is it difficult to find, it has crap cable management so it would be ugly inside, making it kinda pointless.

Also I know about the super sexy Be Quiet! Dark Base Pro 900, but since I live in Canada that case will be around $300+ to my house and I dont have that kind of money. (Pro version its the only model with the glass side panel)

Max budget is like $200CAD, I can stretch it a little for the right case, which I thought would be the Dark Base 900, but again, cant afford the pro version.

I've had an eye out for a nice reverse ATX case for about 6 years now. None of them ever seem to really fit my needs, although the silverstone mATX ones were really good. I've been looking at the BeQuiet Dark Base 900 as well, it is reversible and big but also fairly classy but like you said the price is pretty high. Its such a niche market I don't think we'll ever find a really good one.

Here's an FT05 from SILVERSTONE for only $174.99 with rebates that could lower it to $159.99!

Here's an OCN thread discussing it:

It's the best deal for an awesome case!

Seems nice but it doesn't seem to have a window making it pointless to me.

I just realized you wanted a window on the right side of the case and the case I had that fits the bill for you is either the RV02 or FT02 from Silverstone.

Here's the RV02 for $200 USD ---> HERE

I had the white version of that case and I loved it!

Another option is the all aluminum FT02 but that's currently hard to find and expensive, so in it's place I'll recommend the FT04

https://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Extended-ATX-Aluminum-Computer-FT04B-W/dp/B00DU6RWIE

It's a bit more expensive at $229 but it's a good choice!

It can definitely fit 2 cards with no issues even the ones that are around 11 inches long. As for your H100, you have 2 options of doing it. You can remove 2 or 3 of the 180 mm fans at the bottom and use the H100 as is or you can opt to use the 180 mm fans and place the radiator there. The case comes with radiator mounts for the 180 mm fans, you just need to read the manual on how to mount it.



See those two rectangular bars up top, those are the radiator brackets you use to mount to the 180 mm fan. thumb.gif

Just watched the HWCanucks video on the case, no chance my system is gunna fit. I have 3 HDD's and an SSD frown.gif Reason it wont fit, the 2 video cards are 11.5", which cuts off almost all access to the HDD's for cables.

*EDIT*

Also with the 11.5" GPU it just barely, but does for sure, make those mounting brackets for the rad put it in the wrong spot so rad runs into the gpu
