    Horisontal ATX cases?

    Ever since I've seen UFDisciple's rAge build I've been in love with idea of a Full ATX cube case that allows mounting the motherboard horisontally instead of the usual vertical mounting. So i'm in love with the Thermatalke Core X9 basically.
    I was just wondering though do you guys know of any other cases that allow horisontal mobo mounting?

    Actually out of all of those only the HAF-XB can join the Core X9 in sporting a full ATX board, most of the rest are ITX cases.

    Seems like the HAF-XB has way less internal bays though although the Evo improves that.

    Anything else?

    commented by completely bypassing your OP and just reading the title (not even properly)

    case that isn't really meant to be horizontal, but I think can pull it off, is an Air 540

    Hmm, I suppose any mid tower could just lie on it's side. But I was thinking of something with that same sort of layout as the HAF-XB Evo and Core X9 and X5 with mobo at the top and then a lower compartment for PSU and storage/optical bays.

    Nothing from Lian-Li or one of those fancier brands?
