How about building a case such as this...

There is a program called Sketchup which I have been reading about in my fav mag Custom PC and they are doing a step by step guide on designing a case such as this.

I have alredy seen a few cases similar to this design that have been built from scratch using metal for the frame and then perspex for the sides. I will try and find a pick of the one hat I am talking about.

It would be fairly easy if you had the tools i guess. But if you dont (like me) then i'm sure it would cost a small fortune to get the tools.

Im sure family members and hire shops would have them... I know I could easily go see soem of my uncles and get the tools needed. Im sure I could get them to help me build something like this...

Maybe I should get a copy of Sketchup and design a boxed case that can house 2 or 3 120mm fans a water cooling kit 4 stacked HDDs a couple of DVD/CD drives and all the other inerds.

Ummm... I think I may have to start another project then. I already have a HTPC project on the go so maybe I could do this one aswell and record my prgress in a thread on here with pics and what not.

I will cost it up later today for materials that I would need and sketch out a rough design.

Fancy building me one that looks like that? I'll pay you (but not £300)

Ah so. Was just converting $$$ into £££, typical US websites, won't ship overseas

EDIT: oops, they do ship overseas
wonder how much they'd charge then? Might be cheaper than buying it here xms...

ive seen that case and thought of buying it....but it got a bad review, because it opens in 2 peices, and is hard because of all the fan connectors. but other then that its awsum...but then theres the size and wieght of it

its like a frigging 2ft cube!!!!
but u could get 2 duoble heatercores in there....sweeet
but with a price of 400$...hmmm

Yes...two dual heatercores (or even a tripple black ice+dual heatercore) INSIDE a case would be totally amazing!!!

Just been sourcing info on custom designs materials and a few small guides and I have come across some brilliant designs using Lubic Kits.

With one of these kits a boxed frame about the size of the case show in this thread is easily obtainable. Using either perspex or metal side panels and a few modded components from an old ATX case a simple design could be made.

Lubic Kit P3519 = £54.95

The hardest part would be the perspex cutting... One mistake and thats money down the toilet.

I think for a decent case the price would be a little over £140... But thats just for the frame and perspex.

I think creating the frame from scratch would be alot cheaper if sourcing good cheap metal or even wood.

Definetley a long and hard project but I think worth the effort.

I will stick this one in the fire and see what I can come up with for the cheapest ammount of cash.
