my dream case is simply a cooler master HAF 932 blue edition with a top mounted triple 120mm radiator and a nice AM2/AM3 waterblock
any full tower lian-li, corsair obsidian 800D, zalman GS1000 Plus, zalman Z-Machine LQ1000
i meant talk about specs of your dream case
full size ATX
bottom mount PSU
the full front bezel full of 120mm fans exactly like the antec 1200
hot swap drive cages
full side window
cable management so great that you cant see one cable
top cover has 3 120mm fans
interior gloss black with a little grain to it
mobo tray cutout for cpu cooler backplate
plenty of forward and upward space and wide enough for the biggest 120mm cooler
Midtower ATX constructed from thick alu w/ sound proof mats
90• Mobo (Silverstone style)
fit 2 x30" video cards
cable management w/ gromets
back interior w/ white accents(pci slot covers, fan blades, plugs) and fully sleeved cables
antivibration mounts for HDD, fans, PSU and ODD
large intake fans at bottom w/ rad mounting options
Basically a customized FT02.
If there is a component I'm picky about, it's the case.
If I could design a case, first of all it would have no front audio or firewire ports. Those ports are absolutely unnecessary since any good speaker system would have a headphone jack already, and firewire is pretty much obsolete thanks to USB. Instead, my case would have four USB 3.0 ports and two eSATA ports, and that's it, besides the typical power/reset buttons and HDD/power LEDs. It would also have a USB hub like the NZXT IU01 built into it to power multiple USB devices.
The case would be black outside and black inside, with a removable motherboard tray.
There would be six 5.25" drive bays, one 3.5" floppy bay and six HDD bays (all would come with SSD adapters) using the Cooler Master trays like the ones in the ATCS 840 and CM690 II. The cable management system would be like the Obsidian 800D, with as many holes and grommets on the holes. There would be a hole for the CPU retention plate, and the case would have ten expansion slots and support XL-ATX motherboards. The overall look of the case would be as close to the look of the ATCS 840 as possible, except taller of course.
The case would have a windowed left side panel that had a latch system like the one on the Antec Sonata series, and you would be able to mount two 120/140/180/200mm fans on the left side and the top, as well as two 120/140mm fans on the back and two 120/140mm fans on the front, and a 120/140mm fan in the bottom. The bottom and top would accomodate radiators for a watercooling system.
The case would accept all standard ATX or Antec CP power supplies (bottom-mounted), and would have ventilation underneath so the fan could face down. All fans would have air filters that could be removed without taking either side panel off (front panel would have a door to access the fan filters).
The back of the case would have an I/O shield plate, ten expansion slots and four holes at the top of the case for watercooling tubes.
All expansion slots and drive bays would be toolless. There would also be no large gaps above/below/to the right of the motherboard tray, so the cable management would have a clean look. There would be hooks for attaching cables on the back of the tray.
The case would accomodate full-length GPUs and the largest CPU heatsinks.
