cut out behind cpu place for cooler installation
place between back side and panel large enough to fit cables and close the panel without issues

psu positioned up
screws that don't fall off would be nice

I was just about to suggest the Define R6 until I saw this. Good luck finding a cheaper alternative, if it existed I doubt Fractal would be selling the R6 for $150.
