Ofcourse, but there are alternatives for all of those.

I might have worded it incorrectly though, I don't think 5.25" bays are going to disappear completely. But I do think they will disappear on a lot of the more performance and/or space efficiency oriented case designs.

There will always be those cases with a few 5.25" bays, a massive amount of HDD trays, etc. But I think they're going to become more of a niche as time goes on.

there is one thing that is stopping me getting this case and thats the sheer ...... holy size of it

I thought you guys were exaggerating but this is 47 Liters. That's absurd for ITX. I really like this design but I have no skills in modding cases. What does it typically cost to hire a professional to cleanly cut out the back panel so I can use an MATX?

You arent going to have enough room. The board sits basically on top of the power supply.

Thought the images were using a fish eye effect at first glance until I realised it's supposed to look like that. Interesting design but I like it.

Its going to take a lot more modding than just modifying the back panel. you'll have to:
-remove the PSU shroud.
-re position the PSU
-remove the motherboard tray and cable management bracket
-make/buy and install a new motherboard tray
-cut new cable management holes
-make various new pieces of trim
-and more, this is just some of the stuff I can see that need to be done.

I don't see this being an easy case to convert to mATX, and if you're not doing it yourself the cost would be very high.

I can see what you and Munne mean now by looking at the internals more closely. Unlike the Bitfenix Prodigy refits the PSU location makes this much harder from the start.

This shouldn't be a mini itx case, 47 liters? seriously? The Ncase M1 is 12.6L, now i'm not saying all mini itx cases should be that tiny, but i would draw the line at 20L with anything larger not small enough to be considered mini itx. My current arc midi r2 is a mid tower just shy of 55L and this case is only trailing it by 8L
