I'm on the lookout for a good, quiet, mATX case designed with full loop watercooling in mind; without sacrificing the optical drive bays - this case comes up well short, especially consider the price. I've yet to find any case that fits the bill, but I doubt "no worse than anyone else" is the accolade the 350D is shooting for.

And really it's nothing a bit of modding couldn't sort out, there's plenty of room at the bottom if you move the 3.5" drive bay.
