Like a normal mobo tray, but having it pulled forward with the components hidded behind it. Understand? Its really hard to describe but looks amazing when I envision it.
although it would require the case to be wider to accommodate for the gpu to fit, idk, its hard to describe what i am envisioning.
Not crazy... that sounds just like the acrylic case dwood is working on. Here's the build log.
. I think you're right that it would result in a wider case, but with more fans you should get cooler temps because you'd be isolating rad air away from the mobo and video card.

Where the heck did you hid a hard drive (presumably SSD of course)?
Theres an SSD and HDD (both 2.5") under the video card. They're accessed thru a trap-door in the bottom of the case like so...Edited by She loved E - 12/5/12 at 3:41pm
