That Raidmax is sweet, but alas I want the IO panel at the top. Too bad. Thanks for the idea though. g-

You could learn to solder and reposition the buttons yourself. Alternatively, there are some cases that have movable I/O Clusters, like the Thermaltake Armor or Armor Jr. The CM Stacker has top mounted Power buttons, but it's fairly pricey. OK, very pricey. The fact is, if you really like the Centurion, either mod it or deal with the fact that you need to bend over every now and then.
Hotter hard drives would not affect their life span, there was an article about this from google, in fact the colder ones gave out before the hotter ones.

Everything would be fine, although media drives might be difficult.

Do you mean 532? If so, it looks nice but I want a window on the side and I'm not crazy about the silver rails going down the side. Thanks, g-

Why not just place the case on the table so it's in easy reach

Yeah, the 532 is the tool-less version of the 530

You can find the window version, but I suppose the silver rails, you like them or hate them

you could buy a power button on some tech site...dont know where...but with that you rewire it so that i reaches on your desk and tape it down...long wire, but it would be really cool....hving it behind something so only you know how to turn on your case, talk about security...lol
