    What I would like to see is a Full- or Mid- tower, with an adjustable backpanel and PCI slots, for moving the motherboard in height like a kind of motherboard tray, in order to gain more (or less) room for top radiators/ fans. Maybe a c-case with such an "in height- adjustable" motherboard tray elready exists? I couldn´t find one yet. Somebody knows?


    edit: some Silverstone cases do have an extendable motherboard tray, but only to pull out the motherboard, it´s not adjustable in height as far as I know.

    So what happened with Zalman? I thought they went bankrupt? Was the name bought out and it's run by another company now, or did they come back from the dead... or did I just hear false info?

    Speaking of Zalman Z series, I'm waiting for the Z9 Iceberg case (especially the white one) presented few days ago.
    I know it's on the budget side but I think it's one of their best designs.
    I personally own the Z9 Neo plus(predecessor for Z9 Iceberg). Its old and not so fancy, but with the design and $80 price tag it declassifies the competitors IMHO. ;)

    Why can't these "airflow" optimized cases have at least 170mm CPU height, 162mm is barely enough for a CM 212evo.
