Default looking for a case like the Coolermaster Centurion 590 but...

i'm looking for a mid-tower case(without powersupply) like the Coolermaster Centurion 590 but with the power button and 5.25" drive bay(for dvd)on the bottom. i'm asking because i'm in a wheelchair and i can't reach too high. currently my case is antecs nsk2400 which takes up too much desktop space . also i'd prefer a case that can hold atx or matx boards.

Is it not possible to put the computer on the floor instead?

You could also modify that case so the power buttons are located further down, but I'm not sure you'll find a case designed like that with low power buttons.

NCIX had a Coolermaster case like that I believe.

NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster Elite RC-330 ATX Blk Case 4X5.25 2X3.5 5X3.5INT No PS 1X120MM Rear Fan Front I/O Panel - RC-330-KKN1 In Canada.

Here you go.

You may want to go for a desktop case not a tower.

Where do you live?

Are you local to vancouver?

Coolermaster 590 will work perfectly for you.

Know what you gotta do?

Turn it upside down :)

All you'll have to do is flip your cdrom the other way and put the rubber feet on the top of the case not the bottom.

In all honesty, this is a great idea. I see no downside to this and a quick blast of black spray paint on the new top will make it blend right in too. Hell, the 590 even has a few fan holes in the bottom as well so you still would have the top exhaust with the case flipped.

Exactly and if you don't even care about color then paint isn't needed.
