    Anyone who has read my other recent threads has picked up on a common theme. Heat. Way to much of it. I know I'll be building a new system in the next year and what I want to do is get an big case. XXL big. Right now my case has little room to work in. The dvd rom drive actually hangs over the 20 pin power connector, the other cables are crammed in, in funny angles. In addition to all of that there is only one true exhaust fan spot and no decent intake. I had the maintenace guys cut a hole in the side so I can mount an intake fan but I don't want to have to deal with that hassel next time. So anyways, back to the question... Where can I get a huge case. It doesn't need lights or doors or anything crazy but I'm not opposed to them if they are there. I just want something big to work in and hopefully a place to tie the wires back and out of the way.

    Many thanks.

    **EDIT**

    ATX form factor please, or something that supports multiple forms.

    Well I have a full case for my desktop, so it's fairly tall. Do you have any height restrictions (like a desk)?

    Not really, if it doesn't fit where its supposed to go then I'll move it.

    The only downside was the included 420W PSU decided to die and take my motherboard with it. Otherwise I love it.

    However my next desktop (if I build any more, I like laptops more now) it will be a cube setup.
