I know it's rather new, but if somebody has his/her hands on one, can you please post a review of the N500 case? I like the cabinet reviews of this site. Can you guys also do a comparison of the Centurion 6 and N500/N600 please.

I'm interested in buying a mid tower cabinet with the following specs:

Economical but sturdy and elegant (not flamboyant :) )
No transparent windows or big bulges,
Provision for side,top, bottom, front and rear fans, (preferably 2 each except rear),
Both USB 2 High Speed and USB 3 Superspeed ports on the front panel (1 each will do, + mic and headphone ports),
Cable management options with rubber grommets,
Removable dust filters (for cleaning),
Big-enough to accomodate large GPU(s) without removing any hdd cage, and large radiators,
Enough room to install at least 4 hdd and 2 ssd (in the cages), and ALL the rails should be supplied to install those in the bays,
At least 3 optical drive bays
Total toolless instalation capability for odd/hdd/ssd and even the cabinet screws,
