Going by your measurements
900D is 3.98 sq ft
Enthoo Primo is 3.43 sq ft.
I think an extra 20mm in width and 40mm in depth would be very nice.
20mm width for 140 width radiators
40mm depth for longer GPUs.
Enthoo Tweede will be 270x690x600mm. Is that acceptable?
That would be better, but I could care less about 140mm rads. Tried 'em. Hate 'em.
I'd want that 40mm taller (hehe, you notice you added 40mm to the height dimension instead of to the length
) so I can put a monsta 480 in the top in p/p that doesn't overhang the mobo. Another 40mm length for longer GPUs would be cool too, although it wouldn't be so much for longer GPUs but rather for fitting a tube res with longer GPUs. I'd take the extra 20mm of width just for the heck of it. Maybe then 360/480 wouldn't be such a tight fit down in the bottom.
So my vote for Enthoo Tweede would be: 270x690x640mm
Oh! Increase the base thickness by 10mm with 6x 30mm duel wheel castors on the bottom.

Actually, I'd like to see a completely redesigned Enthoo Tweede. What a dumb sounding name, but that's 'Enthoo Second' in Dutch so I figure that might well be the name if there is one. Took me long enough to get used to 'Enthoo Primo'.
I'd like to see there be room in the bottom so a monsta 480 rad can be mounted sideways so airflow goes through the case from one side to the other (then you wouldn't need to raise the case feet for airflow which is desperately needed in the Primo), then put the PSU behind a shroud at the top of the mobo just like it is now in the bottom of the Primo. And make the case tall enough to put a monsta in the top w/o overhanging the mobo and deep enough to have enough room to fit a thick tube res to the right of the mobo with cards as long as 290mm if not longer.
And I'd like to see a better design than the push-click things to remove the filters. Maybe the same but more heavy-duty? I dunno. I've been through two of them already (and so have others here) and have little-to-no faith they are going to last years. I'm worried every time I remove a filter now whether it's going to go back or not and don't want to have to deal with support again. It took me more than a week of back and forth emails (and they were VERY slow to respond - I had to wait more than a full weekday twice for a reply and both times didn't get one until I messaged back a second time in a row asking wassup?) before they finally agreed to ship me two of those things, and all that time my front fan grill couldn't be put back on. They made the process about as pleasurable as pulling teeth. If those things were available separately I'd buy a dozen of them right now.Edited by Unicr0nhunter - 12/26/13 at 12:29pm
