    New case or mod?

    Almost time to bin my main rig, which has been canabalised for the kids pcs. I'm probably going AMD hexacore, SSD and 58xx, but the spec isn't my question, as I'm planning on watercooling. Not planning on overclocking, just want to play with a w/c setup.
    Current pc is running in a CM Stacker, so what would be best... Mod the stacker to fit 160 and 240 rads, or purchase a new case,
    such as the 700D?
    Corsair 500R, Gigabyte GA-Z97MX Gaming 5, Win 10 Pro, i5 4690, Corsair HX750i, Sapphire Fury X, 256GB Sammy SM951 M.2 (System), 2TB WD20EZRX (iSRT w/ Sandisk SD6SB1M), WD SE16 640GB, 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance, Corsair H100i
    Coolermaster Stacker, MSI 890GXM-G65, Win 10 Pro, AMD X6 1055T, Corsair HX 650, Sapphire HD7950 OC, Crucial 128GB C300 SSD, HD501LJ Spinpoint T166, 4x2GB Corsair XMS3, custom watercooled (single loop, 2 rads)
    Corsair 550D, Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP, Win 8.1 Pro, i5 4670K, Seasonic X-Series SS-750KM3, Asus GTX780 Poseidon, 240GB Crucial M500 (system), iSRT(Plextor PX-128M5S + 2TB Seagate Barracuda), Toshiba 750GB "scratch disk", 2x8GB Corsair DDR3, custom watercooled (single loop, 2 rads)
    Thecus N2200XXX w/2xWDC 3TB, N2200 w/ 2xSammy 1.5TB
    backup:
    A+ BB Storm, Asus P5E-VM-HDMI, Win 7 Pro 64bit, Q6600, Coolermaster GeminiII, Corsair HX 620, Corsair P64 SSD, 2x HD501LJ Spinpoint T166, Asus 6850 DirectCu, 4x2GB Corsair TwinX XMS2

    Well, obviously modding it would be cheaper but if you have the cash, save yourself the hassle. It sounds a difficult mod although it might be easier than it sounds I'm not too familiar with the case. Depends on budget.

    I'm a fiddler... may not be very good at it, but I'm not adverse to whipping out the Dremel an rivet gun!

    The Stacker is, arguably, the original monster case. Loads of space to chop into, just wondering whether anyone has tried before.

    Money... always a consideration but gonna be spending a small fortune as it is!
