Need Desktop Case advice for a 4-GPU system? (EATX motherboard)

Hello,

I'm looking for advice on a wider desktop case.

I currently have two GPUs on an Intel motherboard in a CoolerMaster HAF XB EVO, but am looking for something with more expansion slot capability. (The HAF XB only has 7 slots exposed, even a 3 GPU system would need 8 slots with my current motherboard).

Ideal would be a case to support 10 expansion slots, in a E-ATX or XL-ATX. Everything I see on shopping sites is a tower-style case, like these:

  • Rosewill THOR V2 Black Computer Case
  • COOLER MASTER Storm Series Trooper (SGC-5000-KWN1) Black Computer Case
  • Rosewill Throne-Window - Black ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case - Supports E-ATX / XL-ATX Motherboards, Supports Up to 8 Fans

I'd also like something that is easy to put water cooling in, if I put 4 GPUs in the box and run all the CPU, it's going to get pretty warm. Surely with all the 4-way SLI boards out there, there is a compatible desktop case.

I ended up going with an 8-slot "cubical" case - to go with a Gigabyte Z97X-SOC Force motherboard with 4 PCI-x slots

It claims to support 4-way SLI and 4 double-width GPUs, and will fit in a Corsair AIR 540 case I found.

The case does support 8 expansion slots, and will have no problem with the Gigabyte Z97X 4-way SLI motherboard.

Thanks! I had not heard of those brands (Caselabs.)
