Default New Case Suggestions

Hello,

I have used the CM Cosmos S for last couple of years. I'm ready to upgrade but, go smaller case.

Front bays

Blu Ray Burner
Vantec hotswap trayless hd bay Boot
Vantec hotswap trayless hd bay storage 1
Vantec hotswap trayless hd bay storage 2
Int card reader

Don't want any int HD's

Able to handle new stuff Sandy Bridge or newer

Big enough for GTX 580 or newer

Specs I'd like HT: 20 inches max 8-10 inches width L: not an issue

Prefer a side window

Easy to install parts
Great airflow
Not super heavy

Suggestions

Newegg.com - IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply <-- Hot swap bays, usb 3.0
Newegg.com - Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with Five Fans, window side panel, top HDD dock <-- usb 3.0, Supports up to 16.5" video card (if removed one hard drive cage)
Newegg.com - XION Predator Gaming Series AXP 970-001BK Mid Tower PC Case w&#47; Hot-Swap Enabled Front Loading Trays for SATA HDD <-- Hot swap bays + "Fits at least 350 mm performance graphics cards, like the ATI 5970", but only has 2 fans
Newegg.com - Antec Six Hundred Black &#47; Silver ATX Mid Tower Computer Case <-- Hot swap bays, clear side panel, not sure how large of a video card can fit in there..

Those are your options from what I could find. Nothing has all of what you wanted, so you'll have to make some sacrifices...unless someone can find a case with all of what you're looking for.
