Could easily cut an inch away to fit a radiator in there.

I like HP's Blackbird case, and some of the Voodoo cases are absolutely freaking gorgeous when you see them in real life. But those aren't exactly affordable or readily available.
Well I'd have to say Voodoo cases are gorgeous, just the Blackbird, heavy but not that big from the inside. I wish you told me before Vortex, when I worked on the Blackbird side with Voodoo's working across from us :P

Lowfat thats a nice clean looking case lots of space in and no obstructions in the back could mount a quad rad if you choose too.

I'm a little on the mainstream side perhaps, but I really, really love the Coolermaster Cosmos "S" if it wasn't for the silly way drives were held in, it would get 100% in my books

Yeah. I acutally just found the Lian Li A7010, and I think it is the perfect case for me. Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.

I could mount one tripple rad to the 2 internal intake fans, and mod a second tripple rad up top. All with keeping it looking smart.

Do a little more digging on their site Cptn, they have optional side panels with windows and replacement top panels premodded for rad mounts. Probably nine million dollars, but might be worthwhile if you don't have a shop full of tools.

I love that case, been humming over it for awhile!

That case is pretty similar internally to mine.. they have a long board in their pics but the case does have a crap load of room.
