Use an Antec Mini P180, put the HDDs below, and put a dual 120mm rad up front with modding and watercool the whole machine. I plan on it.

"sophisticated, stylish and innovative"? I'll give the case "stylish", in a muted way (not a bad thing). But "sophisticated" and "innovative"? Uh-uh. It's just a "Me, too!" case made from thin, 1/2 mm steel. The only thing slightly "innovative" here is the b.s. in the marketing release. Hopefully, Spire simply forgot to mention "inexpensive" in the product description.

Take a close look at the front of the case. The area around the power button is solid plastic; the air intake grill is that strip at the bottom. The power button shouldn't have any effect on the (already limited) front air intake.
