Though that lazy man one you mentioned could be pretty appealing. I almost feel like your trying to tell me something Diva?
If I had a case that I had to convert to reverse atx, are you offering for me to bring it over, I don't know, maybe your place... and Do some "Construction" ?
You never know what you might learn from a cougar these days . . . .
The SM8 is ambidextrous, right out of the box . . . you can assemble it ATX or R-ATX . . . . . no change in the actual parts, just how it's assembled.
That's about as lazy as it can get, but immensely practical if you need your machine on the left side of the desk for example, but might get a new cubicle/office where you need it on the right side.
The bigger cases, of course, are orientation specific, and need new additional chassis parts to reverse them.
To me, building a reverse atx build means modding a normal case that never came in reverse orientation, so that you can do a build in it that's flipped from what you would normally see in that case.
I find the reward comes from engineering thru the impasses, so that it looks like it came stock in reverse form, and finding ways to add liquid cooling where it wasn't originally a priority in the design.
