Looking for a new case.. I had found one but cant remember what it is called now.
It is much wider then standard ATX cases and fits the motherboard in horizontally instead of vertical.
The PSU goes on the bottom under the motherboard compartment in an compartment of it own.
Also it has rollers so it can be pushed around if needed??
Oh and it has one or two optical drive bays I think but not sure.
Comes in the color black but I could have swore they had a white version as well??
I think someone here had one with a threadripper in it but I am to lazy to page through all the threadripper posts.
Any one have a clue what case this is or what they are called??

Maybe one of the Thermaltake cube-style cases?
Yessss... found it, thanks guys..!!
It was in fact a Thermaltake Core X case.
I am torn between the x5 or x9 snow edition and this case
Thermaltake Level 20 XT E-ATX Extreme.
Any one have either of these and do they include roller wheels with it?
Also will it fit exteneded tower coolers like the Noctua Threadripper Air cooler??
The case in my Sig is to narrow by an inch and a half to fit the Noctua Heatsink, so I have to keep the side panel off and I hate doing that due to dust and crazy cats trying to chase after the RGB lighting..

I have level 20XT, its internal frame is same as core X9. Case quality is very good. No, they dont include roller wheel. You can buy it separately.

Lol this case is too huge, you can fit 2x noctua NHD15 in it. This case is also stackable and custom liquid cooling friendly and has lots of customisation options. It can fit two large size PSU with SSI-EEB server mobo. On top you can install dual 480mm X 86mm thick alphacool monsta radiator with 25mm thick fans.

So what do you think of it? Do you still like it? Would you recommend it?
I like this case, but question is do you need it ?
I purchased this because of my Asus Z10PED16-WS motherboard was too large for a normal case. I was not able to fit it inside my old Corsair 780T case. I needed large case to install two of alphacool monsta 480mm rads for my gpus and both 18c xeon cpus. Earlier I was considering thermaltake view 91, but that case is too huge than this case.

If your motherboard is smaller m-atx and you dont plan to use large custom loop and 3-4gpus, then there is a similar design smaller size model, level 20 VT.

I will need a bigger case for the x399 platform which have larger motherboards and extra large air coolers. Dont think i can fit my motherboard into that smaller case. The motherboard is a x399 Gigabite gaming 7 but I am wanting to upgrade to the Asrock Taichi or maybe a next gen Threadripper v3 motherboard when they are released.

Then ur case requirement is same as mine. My Dual cpu asus mobo size is SSI-EEB 12" x13" size and it can fit inside this case with ease.

Thermaltake core x5 TG is another similar design case but slightly smaller than level 20 XT.
Core X5 TG can house dual 360mm thick rads on top, whereas level 20xt can house dual 480mm thick rads

Yes I have been watching reviews on all 3 cases and cant decide which one I like best.

I know this is an old thread but I'm in the same boat and need a large case that can house my rx 6900 xt without issue. I've been running a CM HAF932 for over a decade now and its just too small inside for my hardware. I had to bend the drive cages to get my MERC 319 RX 6900 XT Black inside with no room to spare.

And yes I also want wheels underneath just like my HAF932 came with.

I have three 922's. Isn't the 932 the "big one"? My 922's didn't come with wheels. I bought double braked casters, put them on 2.5"x1/4" aluminum bars the width of the case, and used 6-32 screws to attach them where the original case feet had been.

Also, I tried a Gigabyte GTX-1070 Mini OC card, and was very satisfied with it -- it's about 7"+ inches long. I'm going to avoid full-sized graphics cards in the future, if I can help it.

Yes the 932 is the larger case but it only has 12" of GPU space. I'm not using the 5.25 drive bay up top so I chose to collapse the side to accomodate my card which is almost 14" long. When I got it I set it and my gtx 1080 side by side and it dwarfs it at 2.5 slots plus its like 2" longer.

I could just cut that section away leaving the bottom for future hard drives. Currently I only have one mechanical drive and the other 4 are ssd's.

The lvl20 is a nice case if your not going to add large radiators, or you going with AIO / Air cooling.
The x9 is a better case if your going to go overkill with radiators.

I have 2 x 480mm radiators mounted top side on a x9.
The x9's can also be stacked on top of each other, if your into that stuff.

Personally tho, if your going to go all bat LCS, the x9 or Tower900 is probably ideal as you have plenty of room to work with, and the cases are pretty forgiving in tube routing.

If you want a blingy RGB fan light show air / aio case, the lvl20 with 3 sides tempered glass will win over a x9 anyday in being blingy.
