ATCS 840 is what's on my wish list.

The price, size, looks all work for me.

I like that case, except that the price is much more than I paid for the HAF 922 and it lacks one expansion slot that my case has. Your case is more conservatively designed, which I like, but, like mine, it still has the power button on top, which I don't.

This looks like an excellent feature, but I have an external HD case that works something like this, and I liked it very much, until that I found that one of my Seagate HDs had a broken guide blade on the data cable connector, which Seagate wouldn't help with. I now have a brand new HD waiting in the closet for it's mate to die, so that I can use the part off of it to repair the broken one. It may well have been my own fault...I really don't know, but it gives me second thoughts about hot-swapping. In my case, that's not much of an issue, because I really don't need hot swapping.

Well, everybody's entitled to his own biased opinion

But there is not a single reviewer out there that would agree with you:
http://www.google.com/search?q=Stacker+830+Evo+review

It’s very hard to find flaws in the design, construction or features of the CM Stacker 830 Evolution, Coolermaster has done an excellent job implementing easy to use tool less features which make installation a breeze; You can get your whole system inside this case in less than half an hour and that’s with all bells and whistles, and without the need to hurry.

This case is meant to last, the high build quality, expandability and flexibility will allow it to do just that, instead of buying a new case every 2/3 system upgrades, this case could almost last you a life time; whether or not it’s worth the asking price depends on what you are looking for. The 830 series introduced a different look to the CM Stacker line-up, some might love it, and others might hate it. All I can say is that pictures alone don’t do this case justice, the workmanship and attention for detail is stunning.

I thought about that, it's not a feature I would use much but I could see it being a deal breaker for you.

I like my Cosmos S a lot but it still has a few downfalls. If money meant nothing I'd buy this;

http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/microsite4/x2000.html

I like the tall and shallow design as it would fit under my desk perfectly. It looks stylish and has good cooling without the need for side fans because of the shallow design positioning the front fans very close to everything that needs direct cooling. Even though it's shallow it will fit any video card because there are no drive bays in front of the mobo at all. 6 hot swappable sata bays to boot. Only downsides besides the price is the lack of cable routing space behind the mobo tray because of sound deadening, the useless space up the top, and the 80mm fans at the bottom. I guess the 80mm fans will be very quiet so shouldn't be a problem...

Even though the newer cheaper PCX-1000 solves these problems the sleek simplistic design on the front is somewhat ruined by vents and external drives
http://lian-li.com/v2/tw/flashpage/x1000/

Still I have heard there are problems with the x2000's front bezel curving in so I might just get the x1000 for my next build.
