Maybe something like:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...153-028&depa=1
Newegg allows you to filter down on specifications like you want to but they don't ship to the UK. Maybe you could use it to find the type of case you want then source it locally.

Build by design specs, don't vary from the design, and you'll be okay. Make one of those acrylic one's they're all spiffy.

Or you could just buy an old server case from ebay.

new egg is deff the way to go! speaking of new egg has anyone noticed that newegg
has begun to kinda sell out. Their prices are going up, things that used to be shipped for free now
cost money and they dont' have as many deals that don't involve a mug or a sticker ( don't get me wrong i love my mugs and stickers and pens and zodiac paper weights). Used to be if i bought a motherboad i would get free shipping on a case, or something like that. The good old days of new egg are gone, but i would still start there. wow that evolved into a rant, if you're still reading this you're the only one!
