After spending some time with the Phobya case, so have I found that it wont work very well without modding the case.

So before I start modding, so do I want to check other options.

 

Phanteks and Lian Li have both dual case motherboards, but nether have enough cooling space or not enough space for storage, unless I have missed something.

Thermaltake also have an offering with there Core W200, but with a weight of 29kg by it self and my experience with there Core X9, so dont I want to go there.

I know that Caselabs has/had a dual motherboard case, but its not listed as an option in there shop.

 

So that leaves me with MountainMods and ether Extended Ascension or Extended U2-UFO:

But does anyone know the quality of the case and material they use?

 

After all, this tells me nothing: " It is made from thick aluminum making it lightweight, sturdy, and thermally friendly".

Especially since the 1,5mm thick aluminum the Phobya case uses, dont feel as high quality as 2.3mm and 1.6mm aluminum Caselabs uses.


I speak my mind, sorry if thats a problem.

I recently used a Mountain Mods Pedestal for a radiator box. The cases are aluminum panels like from CaseLabs. Again I built a radiator box from one of their pedestals -- it's 18" square by 9". I'm considering moving another setup I have into one of their Gold Digger chassis as well. Their chassis have a wide range for customization, and they sell spare side panels and parts in case you change your mind on something or screw up a mod. There are some video reviews of their chassis on YouTube as well, and there may be some here on LTT who've used them in builds.


Wife's build: Amethyst - Intel i7-5820k, 16GB EVGA DDR4, ASUS X99-PRO/USB 3.1, EVGA GTX 1080 SC, Corsair Obsidian 750D, Corsair RM1000

My build: Mira - Intel i7-5820k, 16GB EVGA DDR4, ASUS Sabertooth X99, EVGA GTX 1070 SC Black Edition, NZXT H440, EVGA Supernova 1050 GS
