    Flat bed chassis

    Hi all
    I'm looking for a new chassis that supports a flat bed style motherboard and I'd like input. Should I get a flatbed style or just get a regular chassis?
    I like the cube style and I want to fit a full CPU cooler which my current chassis can't.

    I'd like something like the Thermaltake Core X2, as below
    | i7 3770 / Zotac Z77 / 16gigs of DDR3 / HAF 922 / SuperFlower Leadex 650 / EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC GAMING ACX / Nuprime uDSD / Delid Mate & Relid v2 | Dutchie 6' 2" KingFish / DSD 6' 6" Hybrid / Magic Shot 9' Longboard |

    only reason I could think for going flat bed style is if you could view it from the top but you can't with closed cases so why no just go with a standard case

    Two things:
    1. What's the height of your CPU cooler?
    2. What size mothermoard? If you're mITX I can't recommend the Corsair 250D enough.

    the V21 would have been a nice choice because then you can decide by actually doing it

    just not fond of the rounded front and probably not the most space
