This is what the PC-Q08 should have been!  A convenient backplane, space for a 300mm card without removal of any bits.  It looks to be just a bit bigger (it even has a MB tray that's not the side of the case).  But, I've built my mini-monster (Phenom II 1055T 95W, Minix 890gx-usb3 mini-itx board) with the Q08 and it may not make sense to switch, as it may be more difficult to watercool.

I have the PC-V354B which is slightly larger and you would be amazed at what you can fit into it.  I was slightly disappointed that I couldn't fit my Corsair H70 watercooler into it without modification but it's fine.  I switched to the Noctua NH-U9B SE2 air cooler and honestly couldn't be happier.  The Noctua is inaudible and I'm impressed with the mounting mechanism - best I've seen on any air-based cooler.

I'm a little jealous of the quick-release panel levers on the PC-TU200, whereas the V354 has eight tiny, easily lost, screws that hold each of the side panels.  However, I'm still impressed with the case.  For reference, in the V354 I have an Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z M-ATX 1155 mainboard with a 2600K CPU, XFX Radeon HD 6870, 16GB Corsair Vengeance 1866 memory, (2) 120GB OCZ Vertex 2 system drives in RAID0, (1) 120GB OCZ Vertex 2 for alternate OSes (OS X Lion and Windows 8 Dev), a WD Green 1TB drive and a CD/DVD burner.  It's the power of a full sized desktop in a M-ATX package.  Given the single-click overclocking options of the Asus Maximus IV board, this machine is MORE powerful than my full sized Asus P6X58D system with a Core i7-920.  I did need to sacrifice the second drive cage in the V354, which holds an additional four 3.5" drives or eight 2.5" drives with adapters, since the XFX 6870 is about 1/4" too long to allow me to install the second cage but I will likely never need it.

With so many high end M-ATX and Mini ITX boards, you would be amazed at what you can do in a case that size.

pretty sweet but wouldn't it's size limit what you can put into it?
