When you've been considering to shell out a grand for a SMA8 + accessories, I don't think you'll see me call something crazy expensive anytime soon. That said, I'm really not a fan of the design. And when I'm shelling out about a grand, I'm expecting perfection, or something that comes really close. I'm an enthusiast user, like many here. I don't want to make compromises, not when I'm shelling out this amount of money. Don't forget we're talking about metal boxes here. Sophisticated, carefully designed metal boxes, but still metal boxes.

Also looked into that, but it won't house enough rad to get it really quiet. Also needs a ton of modding to get it to look really clean.

The thing is, there are barely (if) any angels in this industry. Everyone copies everyone. There's only so many variations you can make of a metal box.

Already looked in LD. Was the first thing that came to mind after CaseLabs.
I've also looked Mountain Mods in the meantime, but those don't seem to offer anything that fits my requirements and still looks decent.

Might actually look into a scratchs build soon. But the logistics, materials and equipment are a total nightmare for me.

You are either then going to have to mod one to your liking or do a scratch build because it seems nothing out there suits your requirements.

I guess I'll take one last look at CL and see if CL, BestCases & me can work something out that makes everyone satisfied. If that doesn't work, scratch it is.

If there end up being any left, the MBX MKII is pretty sweet. Or you could always go the custom TJ07 route.

Yea, but it costs and arm and a leg - for the base model. That doesn't even include most of the fancy stuff. And, like many other cases: doesn't house enough rad to keep it whisper quiet. I guess it's gonna be an SMA8. Would preferred to avoid BestCases, but it seems like I'm not really left with many alternatives.

This one can fit what you want, nice and expencive: http://www.phanteks.com/Enthoo-Elite.html

Can "only" fit 420 + 420 and looks like an old school TV: http://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=100-E1-1014-K0

"Caselabs" look-alike but limited rad support: http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-d600/

Same as the over but more limited rad support but good airflow: http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-a79/
