Those are steel.

If you're willing to shell out the money TJ07 is the best case on the market, and the nicest. 700d/800d are steel, but also terrific watercooling cases.

For all (or nearly all) metal construction. Corsair 800D(700 without window), Mountain Mods (cube shape), CaseLabs, or Silverstone TJ07 all fit the bill.

it all really depends on what you plan on doing. Look at your build, budget, and what you want to do.

800D is cheapest price wise (relatively speaking), well built, intended for WC, and has great wire management.

TJ07 is going to setup very similar to the 800D, but cost you $100 more.

CaseLabs and Mountain Mods cases are going to be a lot more flexible in how you can mount things, but they come with a higher price tag.

You won't go wrong with any of those cases, you just have to figure out what you want to build.

Well, I do have an old aluminum case that would hold everything, so I think I'll try and see how I can mod it to do the job. It quite big, and drilling/cutting it up should be pretty easy.

EDIT:
Nope, the old case isn't going to cut it (no pun intended!). So, back to the hunt for a good aluminum case. Going to use a 360 rad internally...
