I've been looking around on the egg, but i'm not finding much in the way of reverse cases (btx???) where the motherboard is inverted and the access panel is on the right rather than left.
EDIT: forgot to mention it should have a window
Any suggestions? Price is not a big factor but im not trying to spend a shitload at the same time lol

Thanks!:toast:

SilverStone and the 90* rotation of the board is about the best you are going to get in full towers. They did just release m-ATX version of reverse-ATX/BTX

:banghead:

fail... I thought BTX was over all better than ATX as far as thermals go? since everything is the right way round considering that heat rises. Plus you can put the case on your left and still see it.

yeah, my TJ11 sits on the left, but the I/O faces up! something to consider that offers close to what you are looking for. I mean the configuration/layput not the $600+ case.

how about the lian-li PCA05B ? Completely reverse but still ATX form factor. Compact though :)
