Mirrored cases?

My current setup consists of a desk where I can only place my PC on the left side, either on the (hard) floor or on my desk. The right side I use for a chair and the desk part above is for my laptop. I can also put my PC behind the monitor, but the airflow would be cramped up totally. It's not possible to change the orientation of my setup or I would have to flip around my entire room just for my PC position.

What triggers me a bit is that all cases are designed to be put on the right side of the user. So my question is: Can you recommend me some mirrored/left side cases? It must support a 240mm AIO and use ATX boards, not MicroATXs. Preferably a medium or full tower. Tempered glass panels and RGB are nice to have, not necessary. I'm NOT looking for inverted cases where the GPU is on top and all is 90-degree rotated.
What options do I have? I don't need to buy it right now, perhaps later in the year. No fixed budget.

The Terminologgy you're looking for is "Inverted cases"

The G3 looks pretty good. The Corsair is nice, but hard to fit for me and I might not be able to seeing the Corsair logo upside down. lol

Thanks, I will have a read through them. I wasn't sure to use the term inverted cases as sometimes I see posts referring to those case with the GPU on top (where the connectors are) and motherboard at 90-degree angle. What are those called then? Could be that I'm wrong or others mixed up the terms.

Those are Rotated cases or layouts. 

 

It should be noted that not listed in that list is the upcoming Lian Li PC-O11D Evo, which will be similar to Dark Base Pro cases which allow the case to be partially disassembled and inverted. No timeline on when that case will release though, so if you're looking for something within upcoming months this should not be considered as an option.

Thanks, that's good to know to differ them from now on.

I personally really like cases that can be customizable and perhaps modded as well.
Not in a hurry, I could even wait until the end of the year if I need to. I already have a case, but a normal one though. This topic was mostly to see what options I have for when I want to change my case later on.

Currently there's no release date yet for this case, I would expect it to go into production by the end of the year at the earliest so that falls within your timeline. The Original O11D is one of the best cases I've ever worked with (and I'd wager anyone else who has done the same will agree) so it's a very strong contender, but I always recommend considering all options first.
