Smile Upgrade Computer Case Help Please

So I've got a Antec 900 and I want to upgrade because the video card I have is hitting the hard drive cage. In addition the air flow is being blocked because of the video card. So I did some researching I found a case Rosewill THOR V2, would a H100 fit in the case at all. I want to liquid cool my i7 3770, I'm really bad with knowing these kinds of things help would be appreciated. If not what are some case's that's within the $120 - $180 price point that will fit a H100 and a 12" video card? Also the case needs to have 10 rear expansion slots and the THOR V2 was the only case I found. THANKS!

I have the money to get a 4-way crossfire motherboard and three more 7970 Lightning Editions I keep on changing my rig so I do not update it lol. I need a bigger case. Plus, once I get the case I'm going to buy the better mobo and GPU's plus a LEPA 1600W PSU and that question was off topic It's fine though LOL!

I just want to be able to fit a H100 ultimately in the Rosewill THOR V2 and was wondering if anybody tried or knows someone who has. I also would not like to spend $300 on a computer case please.

The Rosewill Thor V2 has support for a 240mm rad up top and will comfortably fit an H100. I do not own the case, nor the H100, I just read the reviews and checked out some build pics with the combination through google.

Most full towers should be able to support 4 cards with either 9 or 10 slots being pretty common in a full tower chassis.

The Cosmos from CM is one that stands out.. Lian Li will have options too and then there is the likes of the Corsair Obsidian 800d

Choose a Case - PCPartPicker
Nice list of full towers.. You'll need to have a look and see which have the 10 slots your looking for.

Pretty much any mid range Mid tower can take a H100 too so that shouldn't be an issue but as with everything check anyway to be sure..
