Default Shuttle style case

I am looking to do a new build i am looking for a shuttle style case but i am kinda picky

the motherboard i am going to be using is: ASUS Rampage III Gene mATX LGA1366 X58

the things i am looking for is this case is a window, good cable management. I doubt this is possible but i figured i would ask first before i scrap this idea and go atx x58.

Thanks
SKW

In this for factor you can also look at some lian-li. Out of that you are out of luck. What are you searching for features?

What I've generally seen is really small case = no window. Lian Li might though, so definitely take a look at them.

Thermaltake Lanbox should be the only windowed case on the market, if not one of the very few.

They're pretty hard to find too since they're almost EOL.

If you want the window that badly, ATX is the way to go.

EDIT: Have you checked out the Silverstone FT03? It'll be released later in Q4 2010.

yeah, I have been looking and there is no shuttle case that i find i like for a new build. I am also build a HTPC from parts that i already had and i am going to get sugo case for that.

So i think I am going to buy a atx motherboard and a mid level case. What do u guys think of the
silverstone. This is the one had in mind.

I actually just finished a build with the thermaltake lanbox windowed and it is a great case after a bit of modding

other than this case i have not really seen any that have peaked an interest

Most of the Silverstone case are awesome. Feture are great, look is clean, build is solid. So if you like the FT-02 go for it!!
