Reverse atx with a little RGB bling . . . . Ideas needed

Hi guys,


I need some suggestions . . .


I need to build a pc that will sit to my left and have the usual glass side panel and some RGB bling on the opposite side of the case so it all shows with the pc on the left.


The only factory cases that come to mind with a reverse atx interior format are the old and dated Bitfenix Prodigy M, which was matx, and a Corsair 600C, which was atx, but big, plain, and unblingably ugly.


I don't mind doing some case modding to reverse the layout, but it doesn't seem that the newer cases that I see on amazon and YouTube are actually reversible.


The last case I reversed was an NZXT Phantom, which lends itself quite well to being flipped. (pic below)


Can anyone think of a smaller full atx, (7 expansion slots) that's reversible . . . . white would be nice, but I can paint pretty well if necessary.




Thanks in advance,


Darlene

Roritoro CR1080 is one of the smallest ATX cases you can buy and is inverted ATX. Personally I think it looks kinda meh, but some people like it.

be quiet! Dark Base 900, it's kind of an old case too though from late 2015.

Silverstone makes the LD01 which looks pretty sweet but it has a blocked off and solid front panel so airflow would suffer.

Lian Li PC-O12 is kind of inverted (completely scrambled is a better word) but it looks sweet if you ever plan on going with a loop. it looks kind of goofy if you're sticking with air though.

Just ordered the Riotoro CR1088 RGB from Amazon for the bargain price of $59.99 USD.

Several YouTube vids on it as well . . . . . . not as nice as addressable RGB, but pretty decent for a $60 price tag.




The really small size is going to be a plus for where I plan to put it.

Some nice RGB fans and a fresh white paint job, and it should come out looking like a much more expensive build.


Thanks for the suggestion!




Darlene
