First off, it is a nice case. Well built and a number of good cable routing options.

BUT I would like more hard drive mounting points.

How about:
- Build it with more 3.5 drive slots on the bottom or top cage. 2 more would be nice.
or
- An accessory drive cage that mounts under the top cage that could hold two additional 3.5's and one 2.5 upside down on the bottom. It could screw into the 4 holes at the bottom of the top cage, the ones used for mounting a 3.5 upside down. This could be a universal accessory to fit several cases. This is would be similar to the cage in the Q16.
or
- A replacement for the bottom cage that holds a 6-7 3.5" drives. (like the cage in the Q8)

Also:
- An optional 140 mm solid cover for those of us who are not using the side vent. It would help keep the noise down.
- Optional solid plugs for the back liquid cooling grommets (like the one on the top). Silver ones would be great, especially to replace the top plug.
- Include e-sata on the top front connection bay by default. I think the part is PW-IN20AV65T0.

Thanks for your input. More HDD options and more ways to make the case more silent. As for your e-SATA connection point, it seems that less and less people actually use e-SATA with USB 3.0 becoming the mainstay.

It would also be nice if the internal cable routing holes shipped with plastic grommets, like on the A75X.
