Searching the perfect case...for me. RGB Sync, Glass and not too wide

Hi guys!
Actually I'm on a Thermaltake View 31 RGB, but I'm not too happy because RGB fans are only button controled and it's too wide for me, so I'm looking to replace it but I'm not finding one for my needs:

- RGB Fans 12/14cm with motherboard sync (Aura, Mystic Light, etc...)
- Tempered Glass (one or two sides)
- Max 20-22 cm width.

Optionals:
- PSU metal case isolator
- Having front USB/buttons
- Led ilumination on front/internal, also RGB Sync

For example, Thermaltake View 37 RGB Edition would be great if it was thinner, but actually is 26cm... I'm thinking also about buying a good case with all requisites without RGB and buying RGB fans separatelly.

Any idea mates?

Thanks!

After looking a lot I decided on one of the new Thermaltake models this year, the Versa J25. Have RGB with Sync, tempered glass, etc ... but one thing, it seemed very cheap with all that for 70€.

Well it has arribed today and it has been a full-fledged disappointment, even though I qualified the concept of "disappointment", I came from an Antec Twelve Hundred that endured 6 years perfectly, changed by boredom, then a Raijintek asterion classic, changed by to low airflow, and finally the Thermaltake View 31 that in comparison to the other 2, it was noticeable that it did not have that much quality.

Well, speaking of the Versa J25 ... The platform is the same for La Versa J22, J23 and J24, the fronts change and little else.
The used steel looks "weak", the fit of the tempered glass is very little adjusted, and again has gaps, so I do not want to imagine the vibrations that will occur over time.
The fans have seemed noisy and not very well finished, things like keeping them looking for a while and not see a completely uniform movement .... So nothing, return and something else.

Seeing the quality of this I dare not ask for another thermaltake, not anymore. The view 31 I do not finish to like, and has resulted in change in less than 1 year, and it is even worse.

So looking at the end I decided on the Phanteks ENTHOO PRO M Special Edition http://www.phanteks.com/Enthoo-Pro-M...alEdition.html.
It seems to comply with everything I asked for, it is a little wider than I wanted (23.5cm) but looking at the shape of the legs I think it will serve me since it is mounted on a shelf of the wall that makes 20cm.

Tomorrow it arrives to me, so already I will say to you such with this one to see if it "satisfies" to me.

I recently switched to a TT A500 that was on sale ($170 AR I believe) and its very sturdy, good quality materials for sure. doesn't come with RGB but it does show off the internals pretty well. Airflow could be better but I am planning on opening up the front/top panels at a metal shop soon.
