The old steel Coolermaster Stacker for a for a budget and the new aluminum ones if the cash is available. They have a ton of room to work with :)

None of the above.

Go with the Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 for a fraction of the cost of any of those. I reviewed it and I am still using it for my main rig.

Or if you want REALLY massive, grab an Antec Titan.

Check out this one : Cooler Master Stacker Case - Black (STC-T01-UWK)

It has a lot of room inside. I seen ppls with dual watercooling radiator mounted into it. Lots and lots of room i tell you! I personally have one... Check out the "Case gallery section" for some pics. And its quite cheap nowaday.

I agree with Patriote, the whole CM Stacker series are awsome cases with tons of room, cooling and modding potential. I should know, after 2 months of research for my new pc i chose the CM Stacker 832! hehe. Hope it helps! Enjoy!
