Hi all,

I wanted to move away from the Elysium as the hot-swappable HDD slot broke down and the HDD racks are bothering me a lot and it's time for a change. My specs are average.
  • ATX
  • 2 x 2.5 ssds
  • 2 x 3.5 hdds
  • 2 x gpus
  • 4 fans minimum

I would like the case to be a sleek mid tower with a hot-swappable slot and built-in dust filters. I'm uk based and budget is not an issue - but I don't want something massive from caselabs for instance. Have done my research but maybe I am missing stuff. The ones I found so far are:

- when it says 90 degrees mobo mounting what does it mean exactly? are gpus facing down?
- pretty old
- decent looks
- best performance
