While it might not look it at first glance the $100 Cooler Master HAF XB can fit a full ATX board inside its squat interior.  The case actually measures 17.4" x 13" 16.7", with a removable motherboard tray to help you install your components in what might otherwise be a difficult case to work with.  It comes with a pair of fans and you can add more to ensure air cooling, Legit Reviews were glad to see that there is also enough space for a radiator for those preferring water cooling.  Installation can almost completely be done without tools and the inclusion of 2.5" bays will make SSD users smile.  Check out the full review.

"The HAF Xb LAN Box Chassis is the newest addition to the Cooler Master line of enthusiast PC cases. The CM HAF Xb was designed with transportation and open bench testing in mind and the end result is a new form factor! The HAF Xb can look like a normal case one second and then be quickly converted into an open air test bench with the removal of the side and top panels. Read on to see if this $99.99 case has the features you need!"

I wonder if my Antec HCP-1200 will fit?

Looking to build a system with the Silverstone TJ08 currently. Check my math but I think the TJ08 is half the volume of the HAF? (61 litres vs 30 litres, TJ08 is 8.26x15.16x14.72 inhes)

I got all excited at first about the layout of the the HAF, very inovative. But twice the size?

I like the design on this and for $100? Could potentially be a case worth modding a little.
