Good luck getting in your CDs and DVDs...
Yeah, that's my case. Though I don't know if it's genius. Don't get me wrong, I love the case to death and it is a fantastic case that nobody considers (probably because of the price). However, the simple layout of it just doesn't make sense. They throw the PSU at the very top and the hardrive rack right under it. They should have just switched the two so that the PSU isn't so far and the HDD rack is at the very top. You could easily mod it though, not difficult.
The Lian-Li V1000
follows the same idea of throwing the motherboard upside down, except they make a great layout. The PSU is at the bottom and has little space to reach the board. However, it is a mid-size tower while that Silverstone is a full size, making it a longer reach.
