Upside Down mounting case search.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
i am looking through case options as i am doing a new build to replace my half deceased mATX build.

the only real request i have, is that the mobo mounts upside down.

Side window Prefered, but if not i can easily make my own.

heres an example of what im looking for:


So far im looking at:

CM Stacker 830 ( right one ? )
Lian-Li PC V-1000B
This slot is lonely
This one too.

I've long had a crush on the Tagan A+ Black Pearl, which is basically a reskinned Lian Li V1200 (or V2000).

Hope this helps!

If you're a fan of smaller cases you could go with the Lian Li A05 (ATX), or the coolermaster Centurion 541(matx); the Temjin 6 is big and heavy (e-atx) while the other Lian Li offerings can run quite expensive (I've owned all three named cases).

REALLY easy. The motherboard on the Stacker 830, 830 Evo, 832, and 830 Nvidia is removable. It slides into two channels, top and bottom, that are mounted to the case subframe and then locks in with a few clips. There is a set of these channels on EACH side of the case. Remove the motherboard tray, turn it upside-down, and slide it into the other side. That's all there is to it.
