    Default Retro full size ATX case (desktop/horizontal)

    Hi! For one of my retro builds I'm looking for a desktop/horizontal ATX case - not a tower. It needs to support full size ATX motherboards with 7 slots (AGP/PCI/ISA).

    Unfortunately those cases are not build anymore, with an exception for HTPC systems (which I don't like for this purpose). Most cases I find only support mini of micro ATX, so I'm really looking for cases of the Pentium II / III era. Dell and Compaq used to make them, but there were also a lot of no-name cases for clones. I used to own a few, but gave them away after the year 2000.

    A PSU would be nice, as well as a mounted 3,5" FDD, but it's not necessary. Maybe some of you have an empty case or a system that's not in use anymore. Preferably from Europe because of shipping costs for large items. Note: no AT cases

    Thank you very much for your reply kixs! That seems to be a suitable case. But because of the yellowing, it wouldn't be my first choice - for now. Though if I find nothing else, I can always paint or retrobrite it.

    Thanks for the link imicat! I did notice them on eBay, but nice to know they have their own site. Functionally they look okay, though (as you said) not the prettiest and a bit expensive too. But it's nice that there's a company that jumps into the needs of retro builders.
