Full aluiminum. Less HDD bays (3). More fan slots. Cable management area. Gromets.

Every HDD slot individually removable, so you would only have to keep as many as you need and take out the extras (maybe you could stack the slots somehow?). That would be cool biggrin.gif
And fan slots on the upper part of the case (where the DVD drives etc. usually go).

More space for cable management behind the motherboard tray!

i plain idea i have at the moment is the have forced cable management by making two chambers cooling the psu and hhd's separate from the motherboard and gpu's. and to remove all but a slim 5.25 bay and allow a 360mm rad mounting at the front and top native.

The key in my mind is customizability (if that's a word). Many people want many different things. This means that the ability to do things such as remove bays, install more/less components, and even changing the look of the case are all highly appealing ideas (to me, at least). I also would like to have more room behind the motherboard tray for cable storage. Rubber grommets around cable holes also help a lot. The rad idea is cool, but personally would rather have a few 5.25" bays and a 240 or 280 rad option. You can always relegate the rad to the top which is what most people do anyways. Also, from a modder's perspective, having screws to keep the case together rather than rivets would be awesome.

the front panel of the case , if i dont want to put a optical drive , have an option or some kind of plate , that could let me put a 120 or 140 fan

and at least 3 space somewhere in the case to hold a HDD and SSDs , 3 space for Optical drives (just for fan controllers or dual res)

and for watercooling or air cooling , the top able to put a 120x3 or 2x140 , at front and at the bottom of the case a 2x120 or a single 140 rad

this will be the norm in a watercooling case if you make it biggrin.gif , and another thing ... dont put a motherboard tray with 10 expansion slots , just make it 8 slots

for this summer , im gonna make my own cases :O and this is the first im gonna make :



my requirements where , able to fit a monsta rad where ever i want in the case , without compromising the opltical drive cage and the HDD cage , it can fit 3 4x120 monsta in push/pull config , 2 at top and one at bottom , the rest is space for whatever i want , another 3x120 rad , more HDDs or a place to put the pumps smile.gif

right now im meassuring everything , like the cut outs to align with the cages inside , and some sort of cover for the front and top of the case ... ah and the doors too if its going to be a single piece or a 2 piece

Okay im going to start putting together a cad model this weekend and try incorporating at least most of these things and make sketches for possibly fronts and tops that could be changed out for different things.
