I kinda like this case...a lot.

The only two issues I see with it are 1) no good cooling for the hdd/ssd area (those 80mm fans are on the wrong side for good air flow to the HDDs. CM should have swapped the 5.25 and 3.5 bays for front to back air flow like top zone) 2) poor front IOs. If you look closely you can see that CM was going to go with a more 'rich' front IO options but then at some point went with a shorter PCB. This is a shame as a pair of front USB 2.0 ports would have been welcome.

Other than that it looks like my next case for a cube build. :)
