I don't know whether the motherboard tray is removable.

Yeah this is the first one in my post. I find myself in the same predicament, no inverted ATX and I'm unsure if the MB Tray is removable. I'm almost at the point where my five only uncompromisable things are the front door, removable MB tray, separated themal zones, inverted ATX, and the PSU on the bottom. The door for silence as well as looks, the removable tray for easy access to everything without having to unscrew the MB (I've lost too many screws inside the case, plus it's just easier), and inverted ATX not only for thermal reasons but also with the PSU on bottom like I like, it makes reaching the wires less of an issue.

I personally like the PC-V1110. IMO, side exhaust is redundant as airflow does not flow sideways in a case. As for side window and top exhaust, it's something nice to have, but not neccessary.

Your request is possible but it's also contradictory. Seeing your #1 choice is Silence and by exposing the top and side panel with fans you expose noise as well.

Lian-Li has something close to your specs, that is, if you can find this case and if your a ATi fan. It's called the Lian-Li PC-P80R ARMORSUIT.

It has all the requirements on your list except the side exhaust, which I consider is redundant. Why? If it was a necessity Lian-Li would put it on ALL their cases.

If you want pictures, do a forum search: http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...se-thread.html or visit the Lian-Li website.

I changed the side "exhuast" on my PC-V1100B to be an intake... All you have to do is flip the fan and change the screws.

Is the E-Sata necessary? . .your mobo has a port on the back . do you need another? Plus if it has one it will probably be in the front meaning if something were connected you'll have a wire sticking out of the fron of your comp.

Also IMO a top fan is not a necessity as the Lian Li's are very well engineered and are ment to work with the most demanding of systems. your system will stay cool and if its an inverted design I know LianLi has their PCI cooler setup which would pretty much do the same thing as a top fan but keep a clean look on top.

Personally I would go with the V2100B Pluss II . . but I like big cases . . in any regards If I were you I would get it from FrozenPC.com or another site like it as they can add top & side fans (as well as cold cathodes,sleeve wires, sound dampening, etc) before they ship . . so that's two requirements you can have marked off your list. . . . a little pricy but IMO a case will last you through several builds so go ahead a splurge a little and get exactly what you want.

for what its worth my next case will have a removable tray . . . it makes it soo much easier.

Forget cases, all they do is raise temps, I have mine sitting on the lower shelf of my desk with the DVD drive on the top part so I can reach it...you might have to dust it a bit more often though.

Please keep posted on what model you ultimately choose and where you find it in stock.
I'm starting to see sites with the PC-V1000Z show up in google shopping with 1-2 weeks ETA.
Until then I plan on following Jaco87's lead and running sans case.
Thinking the mobo will stand up nicely on a couple of those new foamy style wine corks

PC-V1000z gets my nod...
- i agree, it doesn't seem to have removable mobo tray
- hope the wheels don't wind up looking too cheesy... definitely think raising off the floor is a good idea though... HP Blackbird is solid recent example of this.
- wish they threw in more of the sound dampening material like on the V1110
- like you, i dig the eSata on top... i think next evolution they'll finally realize that it's best located in _back_ on the top so one can position external device with cable pointing backwards
- i too dig the window to show off some innard bling
- the built in SATA hotswap is interesting icing... probably not going to be moving drives often enough to matter
- it seems like the hard drive cage mounts are more plastic than others... can't help but wonder what's better (fyi, even though they're big size images are all busted they left that web folder browsable so you can still find them, thank you lazy lian li web dudes!
- i'm really hoping/thinking that my PSU won't need that ugly extender on the back

They are the same hdd mounts used on my Lian-Li PC777 Anniversary case. From personal experience, I do not like them at all. When locked in place, the hdd still have a little slack so if you have 2x Raptors like I do, when under heavy reading or writing it generates vibration throughout the case and rattles the side panel.

Use slightly larger screws then. Or add rubber dampeners.
