You are looking at the U2-UFO in this case from mountain-mod.

Customized for the 4-way horizontal (XL-ATX) + space for a 360 or two, should cost about 350$. You can go even higher if you want special painting or different sides.

I'm using the ascention case, which is also pretty amazing.

Another option is the new XSPC H1 cube case, but it cost about 500$ and I'm not sure it can fit a XL-ATX motherboard if you need one.

Get a Lian li PC-A77F, the replacement top panel, and a set of those brackets made by UN design and then mount dual 360 radiators internally.

At least I think this'll work. Take a look-see:

And then the UN brackets mount the other 360 radiator in the optical drive bays, though you're on your own when it comes time to mount hard drives. Probably attack some of those mountain mods hard drive cages to the back of the front radiator:

or just chop up one of the stock ones to where it'll do the same.

Wait, it looks like you can mount a dual 140 in the stock top. That might be a better option.

For cube cases Case Labs has got that! Personally a much nicer fit and finish than the Mountain Mod cases.

Take a look at my sig for the Case Labs owners club as well as the Case Labs forum section here.

Here is a list of the dimensions, some prices and items/options http://www.overclock.net/case-labs/9...mparisons.html

A couple of pictures of the M8 and M10 series http://www.overclock.net/case-labs/9...-shipping.html

There are more pictures too but once you start looking around if you find them interesting you can probably see the rest.

Also make sure to check out the build logs in the official Case Labs club link as it gives a more personal look at what the cases look like with gear in them and what people are able to do.

I purchased an MH10 that fits 120x4 sized radiators internally and is capable of holding an SR-2 mobo. I am in love with the build quality and options it has available.

A lower cost Fractal Design Define XL could work at $150 and put the extra cash toward the system or Water Cooling gear.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-005-_-Product

I've seen a couple of mods that put a 360 up top. Can also drill out the HDD Bay rivets in the bottom compartment and fit a 240 flat (or two sandwiched on their sides) down there. Removing the Upper Compartment HDD Bays and cutting out the "floor" of the 5.25 bay area should allow a 240 rad to fit in there vertically as well.

I personally love the TJ07 but it's a bit too expensive for me. The 700D is always a solid choice and I've heard some quibbles about the ATCS 840 materials, but I'm sure it's a nice case. Hard to go wrong with many of the Lian Li options too.

I'll likely turn to the XL for my next WC build as it seems flexible, quiet, and has a nice, understated look. Not to mention it's wallet friendly and a little modding never scared me.

If you have $300, throw in a little more cash and get a Case Labs M8.
