I have a better idea. All the ports are in a removable plate that you can toss into a hole in the top or the front panel! The case comes with space to route the wires and TWO blanks. That way if you need your system secure you can use a mobo-mounted power button or some other internal one and lock the outside of the case while filling both holes with the blanks.

This case is sounding expensive but it would be 100% worth it. It also sounds like it would weigh 70lbs alone. :P It better have optional heavy duty casters to function as a desk-side!
You Canadians are case prophets.

-Grommeted cable management holes.

Is it too much to ask?

Edit:
-140mm rear exhaust.
If the entire front of the case isn't 5.25" bays then it isn't a Stacker.

Grommeted cable management holes all over the place is an eyesore. That is my biggest problem w/ the Cosmos 2.

140mm fan mounts everywhere is a must.

Sure, I know based on all the suggestions that we made the right design decisions on the new HAF Stacker. It's quite interesting because we didn't design by committee.

Can't say I love the honeycomb look in the pics, but I will wait for a review or two before I pass judgement.

How can this have so few 5.25" bays?
It needs more modular add-ony bits with different options.

And no 480 rad support? Where is the love?

Cant say that I am overly enthused either....but lets all withhold judgement until it lands. Maybe it isnt a 'design by committee' case that it looks to be in the rather poor pictures. Maybe only by seeing it person will its true brilliance shine through. IMHO CM at least deserve that much as they have made some very good cases in the past! BUT so far...I'm not seeing who this case has been designed with in mind. Any ideas? As I am at a loss and cant go "man this case is PERFECT for....." Maybe Mr HAF can break it on down for us? :)

EDIT:

And too be fair...the 915 part...DOES look interesting. Though it is hard to tell by the pics how big it is. A GOOD m-itx case that is big enough to get the job done ....but not too big (ie Prodigy) would be nice. :)
