The chassis is powder coated steel. Rest of the panels are aluminum, door is tempered glass.
What features does it have at that price that other cases do not have?
Don't think I could answer this one well enough. The places the rad's go (except the front) are trays that are removable so you can mount the fans and rad and slide the whole assembly in. The knock out panels on the side and top can be metal covers or a filter for more air flow. the case is designed to hold two computers. An EATX on top, mini-ITX on the bottom (i stuck a 480mm rad here). This would of been nice because I have a gigabyte brix mounted to my wall for dedicated servers, could of stuck it in this case and monitored it easier.
How much plastic does it have? Which parts?
None. Well, maybe the air filters and the fan splitters. No parts of the actual case are plastic.
What kind of mechanism to remove the tempered glass?
Its on pins. You can open it ( opens and closes with magnets) and kinda work it back and forth while lifting to remove it. It is setup so that the door will open fully out of your way (270 degree rotation) so that you don't really need to remove it.
Is the back panel glass too?
back of the case you mean? Not glass, its an open honeycomb design ( my one gripe so far, feels like it doesn't quite fit in with the case design)
What kind of modulatiry does it have?
modular? You mean how many cards etc you can fit in? 10 PCI slot, room for 13 3.5in (6 brackets included) drives and 6 2.5in drives (4 brackets included). I have 1 2TB NVMe drive so I wont need any of those. Not sure I will even have an internal optical drive since I rarely use one. The graphics card has a bracket so that you can mount it vertical instead of horizontal on the motherboard. You can mount 2 cards on the bracket but would need to order the 2nd ribbon cable.
What's the width behind the motherboard?
Not sure, didn't measure. Inch or two behind motherboard for cables, there are pre-installed fabric tie wraps as well.
