Actually, just a few cases are made completely out of aluminum, and just a few more have all the outter panels made of aluminum. You will not find full-alu unless you go Lian Li or Jonsbo (and not sure about this one being all the inner-frame alu too). And all alu on the outer panels... there aren't that many products, really.
My suggestion... go something wildly different. Like a slim case (motherboard and gpu both being vertical).
(this case, btw, is a Sunmilo BG3. It is chinese made and sold, so you will have to go to taobao and find a middle-man to do the work for you)
This sort of layout simply doesn't exist in the west. Well, unless you go the Lian Li route and their ugly PC-O5/O7 models, that is, but those are severely limited.
IMO, something along those lines will sell simply because there aren't other options. Slim cases? Well, you have the Node 202 / Silverstone RVZ02 and pretty much that is it, but those cases have huge limitations and very bad airflow.
