need help choosing a new case

ok so im wanting to buy a new PC case since i recently bought a new AIO for my gaming setup. the case must support the MasterLiquid Pro 280 AIO, also the case must be able to be purchased on newegg as i have a credit card with them so if i buy a case from them i can make monthly payments and keep the wife happy lol.

below is a link to the AIO i need the case to support my budget for those who ask is 100$ max i would love to stay under 80$ if possible but 100 usa is my limit

also must support a full size ATX socket 1336 mobo 2 6tb hdd's and one 240gig SSD

no drive bays required they are optional assuming i can install windows 7 from a usb drive lol

the only requirement that is a must is the case must come from new egg unless you can find it way cheaper someplace else

edit to clarify i am going to be putting a new mobo in the case and my Z400 will be retired as a spare pc just incase people get confused

HP Z400 workstation with a GTX 750Ti

Since you mention a 1366 socket, I assume it's the HP Z400 you have in your signature. IIRC, not only the PSU is a proprietary design that won't fit regular cases, but also the motherboard has a proprietary 24pin connector. Is this the pc you're swapping? You might have some trouble if it is.

Edit: yep, just did a quick googling, someone in LTT already tried this case swap and failed. It required a second try and a fair bit of modding.
