This is a beautiful case. The works man ship is top notch. I have assembled and disassemble this case and have not notice any flaw in the construction. I must also say that dangerden has A+ customer service. 5 days after ordering my case. Dangerden changed my order so that I could have there 10 pci slot plate for my case. This is one of the few cases out there that supports the ATX XL motherboards. All in all this case had room for all my liquid cooling mods and was worth every penny.
The Water Box Plus made its debut at the PDXLAN6 in Portland Oregon. Requests came into Danger Den to build some custom versions for PDXLAN7 leading to this retail version.
The Water Box Plus comes in all clear acrylic.

The Danger Den Air Box and Water Box were developed as a cool compact case. The Water Box made its debut at the
PDXLAN6 in Portland Oregon. Requests came into Danger Den to build some custom versions for
PDXLAN7 leading to this retail version.
A third variation was developed (after the Air Box) for watercooling solutions and multiple drive bays. The Water Box "Plus" has a similar footprint as the Water Box / Air Box and allows additional hard drives and two (2)CD/DVD drive. It is compatible with all aftermarket air coolers also.
The motherboard tray standard color is clear but is also available black, green and yellow UV colors.
Author: Lardygeezer A great case. In fact it was the WB Plus that made me make the final decision to go to liquid cooling. The box could do with being larger IMHO. The two external drive bays are on opposite sides!!! If your like me and using drivebays for memory cards, eSata, firewire ports that you can hook up to at the front then you need to think carefully how your going to achieve this. The case was well made and had all the fittings needed. They look great too. Go to the DD forums and look at the rig pictures posted - they are definite eye candy.
I can't wait for the next generation WB++ that allows the addition of more bays.

Author: mwillman Beautiful case with plenty of room for water cooling. It really brightens up my room and proves that even building computers can be an art form.
Author: Ryan Hagge Great case, can tell its of highest quality like all danger den products. If your doing water cooling there should be no reason why you shouldn't use this case.
Author: Brian McMahon I bought a DD - Water Box Plus in 2007 and it has held up quite well. Overall, I am happy with the case, but it is not a piece of cake to work with.
The issues I've run into over the years are:
1. Upgrades and changes to components inside the case are not easy. In some cases, almost a complete disassembly will be required (hard disks in particular).
2. This thing will accumulate dust fairly quickly and cleaning is not easy. Since the case is clear, you probably don't want a bunch of clumps of dust showing. I hope you have a powerful air compressor, you're going to need it and patience to keep this thing clean.
3. No provisioning for external radiators/tubing. I run two passive Zalmann radiators and run the tubing external. Zalmann does have tubing and slot covers that can be used, but I don't like it because it make maintenance too difficult. What I did was cut a 'rib' out of one of the air vents in the upper-left of the back (above the ATX back plate connector mask where the keyboard, usb, network ports are). I route tygon tubing through that area and it's big enough to pull the tubes with their connector nipples through.
4. All sides of the case are held together with screws and nuts. Generally this works pretty good, although some of the holes are slightly out of alignment and you have to keep everything loose until you get all of them together, then tighten them all. This is tedious. Also it is very easy to accidentally knock a nut into the assembled case during the close up, and then you have to disassemble a side to get one nut out - so take care to avoid wasted time.
