Front temper glass makes this an instant no for me. soo close... Good thing they didn't discontinue the 240... Tho a 280 without the front temper glass would be an awesome airflow optimized case.

It looks like the glass is easily removable

In the not too distant future those LED controllers will be put to good use on good Old Tannenbaum or whole house XMAS lighting displays, and even Home Discos for the the elderly trying to relive their wasted youth.

Really! LED Bling Narcissism is the new sickness of the Gaming Monobrows and that will take some time to cure.

I love my 540, easiest case for cable management there is, if I where to build a micro build this would be it, you can always turn off the leds. Adding fans on the bottom would give you all the air flow you need helping out with the glass front hindering air flow, and its filtered on the bottom.
