Well no case is perfect and if I had to put my finger on something I wish I could change about the case it would be the cpu cooler limitation.
I toyed with the idea of first putting the PSU where the HDD bay was and using the top vent for a nice intake fan, giving myself a large area for cpu tower cooler but I didn't feel like messing with the gaping hole for the stock psu location haha.
Also what Cooler Master says for max height cpu cooler is wrong, you have ~70mm of clearance but the psu would be sitting on the cpu cooler practically. I used the Zalman CNPS8000b
cooler and it did way better than stock cooler on stock clocks for my 3570k. I tried the Cooler Master Geminii M4 but it wouldn't clear the PCI-E slot on my ASRock Z77 ITX board.

I live in Plymouth, MN, I happened to send an email to him in the morning regarding a local pickup the same day he was going to be 8mins from me so just kind of worked out, I doubt Bill would just drop by anytime I sent him an email haha, although I have beer so perhaps we could work something out!

Thanks, I'm really liking this case, there is plenty of room upfront for rads and such, just the hdd bay needs removed. I really think what they should've done for this case in stock configuration is remove on side of the hdd bay bracket and allow someone to install the hdd/sdd vertically and maybe offset the bay slightly towards the cpu side of the case, that way people could install the AIO liquid coolers stock on their cpus, you could lower the height of the case this way as well making it a lot smaller.
But ideas are like ( * ), everyone has one
