Lets start out by saying that I would water cool in both of them and they should bot do a great job so this is mostly aesthetics and what you guys would be best. Both I would water cool a 7970 and i7 3770k and either a monsta 360 or 480 rad.
First off what I would do for the Magnum M8. In there I would probably either do a UV red build and really nothing too different about it.

Now the Mountain Mods H2-H2O. I actually have a really cool idea for this. What I would do is have half windows on the left and right so that only the components would show. Also on the top I would go with a big window. It would be yellow aurora coolant and I would have yellow led's at the bottom. I think that this would give it a really cool look so its almost like a treasure or something

And i have an asrock mobo with the gold caps so that I think would make it amazing. Forgot to add this obviously the mobo would be mounted horizontally.

So what do you guys think? Normal water cooling loop in the Magnum M8, but the perk being caselabs quality, versatility, expandability, and great modular design. Or go with H2-H20 since I have an interesting theme that could be amazing?

It sounds like you are way more excited about the MM case, so you should probably just go with your gut feeling. That being said, I would vote for the Case Labs case. I think you could find ways to be just as creative with a M8.

Oh and maybe you should have added a poll for people to vote easier.

I actually talked to Jim from CaseLabs (he's a really nice guy). He said theat they have are going to have a mATX case that will have a horizontally mounted mobo that will probably be available in mid April its called the S5 so I think ive decided to hold off till that comes. An mATX build would probably be smarter for me with college less that 6 months away, it would let me take it to and from school alot easier

I will just weigh in -

Around two months ago I was in contact with both mountain mods & case-labs regarding my ideas for a new build and what I wanted to achieve. I also needed a good quote on shipping to Australia. I sent a large email to both companies, with a myriad of questions.

I got one sentence back from mountain mods telling me to create an account & I got a half a page of detailed information back from case-labs, which was sent by Jim who is the owner. I re asked mountain mods and told them I needed to know a few things before making an account & I never heard back from them. Jim from caselabs then proceeded to run me through all the questions I had, the best case for my situation & which case design I should be looking at.

He also is professional, friendly & very knowledgeable. To me, case-labs cases look better, are built better & the fact that they actually give a damn about their future customers is a good sign. Granted I don't own these cases, but I've seen and been up close with both. They're both good cases but I have to recommend the M8, it's just amazing & much more professional looking than any mountain mods case.

I laughed at mountain mods horrendous one sentence email. They just refused to talk to me until I made an account with them.

Ive talked to both companies also. Jim is a really nice guy and CaseLabs is certainly better about getting back to you and with a better response.
