Sub-minitaure switches fit perfectly in the vent holes on the back of this case. Switches such as http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062503

Now I have a mechanical toggle switch to turn my LED lights on and off.

I really like this case a lot and got to check it out at frys with it fully loaded. I'm going to be getting one soon for my workstation.

I wish there was 545 model that is a little wider for a removable motherboard tray, have the bottom hard drive slots taken out and allow for a 240/280 rad in the bottom, and have a side panel with feet so I can prop the case on its side. I'd definitely pay for a case like that.

Good find smile.gif Not sure If I really like that color style but I can see why people would. I am still hoping for a white edition.

Something like this has just about everything you are looking for. http://www.techpowerup.com/185187/lian-li-pc-d600-box-type-case-pictured.html
I think you would have to make that side panel with feet (that's a new one) yourself!

You can mount more drives if you feel up for the challenge, you can fit 3-4 drives if you mount them above the PSU, but that also means you need to find another place to mount your SSD.

Maybe for some. But that case really dropped the ball on certain aspects
PSU is on the wrong side, the case is too shallow. No top mount on the left side either

I second that...its not as aesthetically pleasing either. Looks like a tool instead of a work of art.

I just saw this case at Fry's. It looks like the water coolers dream I have been looking for.
Dual 140mm radiators. All or mostly Copper.
Fan Screw stops or tolerable fin damage for slightly too long screws.
The 46mm thick NeXxous should be good enough.
Are Monstas really OK with quiet slow to medium fans?
How thick I can go for the top or front?

Please look over my build wish list.

RADS 1st choice:

RADS 2nd choices if it will fit:
