      The one I have my eye on:

      Corsair Crystal 570x

      I'm open to other options. The two things I'm looking for is a case that has very good cable management and the ability to add liquid cooling down the road. I'm pretty sure I need a full tower. That's what I have currently and the GTX 1080 barely fits. It's a 10 year old AZZA case with 10 drive bays. It may be a file server one day, but I've had it for a long time and I basically just replaced all the internals within the last 3-4 months, so I'm looking for something to better show everything off.

      Parts that matter for fitment:
      Asus Sabertooth TUF Mark S
      EVGA modular PSU
      1 TB HDD
      1 500GB SSD (with available 2.5 to 3.5 adapter)
      Blu Ray drive (Not a necessity. The 570 doesn't have a place for it.)
      Asus 1080 GTX

      I believe that's all the big parts that need a place to go.

      Has anyone used the Corsair listed about? Any other thoughts?

      Looks like a test bench mounted to the wall. Thats a nice looking case you picked out BTW.

      I just looked up some builds with this case and they're pretty clean. I'm just worried if would be an even bigger and dustier mess that a traditional case can end up if not cleaned regularly. Of course it would be easier to get to the components to dust off 'em.

      I'm pretty happy with the Corsair case I got. It fits the water cooling system perfectly, lots of room inside the case, cable management, etc... Great case.

      I have the budget version of this model and it is great - cable management is a non-issue with this case, I highly recommend

      Check out cases from Sentey if you don't mind a mixture of plastic and metal.

      Otherwise I'd go with a Corsair or Thermaltake case. It'll do your job.
