Default Dual Rad push/pull ATX case

Hi guys, so im looking for an ATX pc case that can contain a push/pull dual rad cooling setup. I don't want any dvd drive mounts or 20 hdd mounts. Id like a window on the side and am looking to spend at max 220$.

Not sure that they exist as my searches seem to look like they fit untill you see a large gpu installed, any help would be appreciated!

Check out my current workaround monstrosity !

This has an offset radiator mounting bracket on the top which should allow it to fit:

Similar setup on this:

Or you could do something like this with it mounted in the front:

And this has tons of space on the side & top for just about anything:

I like the looks of that Li-Li (especially the fact that they've paid particular attention to room for the top rad), but where exactly would you put a tube res?

Hmmm, doesnt have rear fan mounts... Do you think by having enough intakes that a passive exhaust will be sufficient?

Hot air naturally rises so you should use that to your benefit. If you put in a couple intake fans on the bottom, that should help push the hot air up and out.
