    If you could have any chassis for that amount of money, what would you get and why? And no, you can't pick a £20 chassis and keep the money for other stuff haha.

    I would buy a be quiet! Dark Base 900, or a Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5, because of the modularity of those cases (Maker 5 if a windowed side panel is a must have). And of course, the looks they have, I like them.

    You mean that it has tempered glass on all sides? Maybe Corsair Crystal series? (Crystal 460X, Crystal 460X RGB, Crystal 570X RGB) Or maybe In Win tòu 2.0?

    Well I don't know a case like that. Wouldn't it be a better idea, to create one yourself/with someone who knows how to?

    portal, did you see fancetro's answer in the "What case do you have?" thread? It's on the 16th (last) page, though it's from 2015. Maybe he can help you in some way about a full glass case, if he still looks at this forum.
