It has evey option I could want. It's sleek, modern and beutiful. I like the 5.25 and 3.5 bays opening on the sides. Room for water cooling if I went that route. Dam I think this case has it all.
That would be mine also if they fixed a few of the shortcomings.

Hmm, difficult question. I'd actually like a modern incarnation of a case Enlight made many years ago. It was a large desktop case (towers were just becoming mainstream) that would take a full AT motherboard, and had 5 5.25" drive bays exposed and 2-3 3.5" internal bays. It was a fairly large case for the desktop but offered a lot of flexibility. The closest these days is the Coolermaster CM Media 28x series in their HTPC orientation.

My dream case is the next one I intend to build.

Solid copper case , probably a modified copy of a lian-li pc65 , but we'll see.

Motherboard backplane , case back , case top , machined copper heatsinks.

No fans required.

I wish I could use a high speed tech station. Simple is it ?

Nah, I got 2 kids and a cat, it is impossible for me to use something that is open like that.

If i had the time, and money to do it. I would order up a bunch of Carbon Fiber and tools/etc.

And make a custom tower out of Carbon Fiber just because Carbon Fiber is sexy as hell.
