    I don't mind thumbscrews, mainly because the clips and rails I've had on other cases, from Fractal Design and Antec, have proved pretty fiddly.

    As opposed to what, though?
    The last time I saw anything but thumbscrews was the spring latches on the old Corsair 650 Obsidian.

    There are several alternatives, but you can bet each will bump the price up. Personally I'd rather everyone used captive thumbscrews like the Carbide 500R had.

    I like the look of the case but it would be good to get one optical drive in there for us steam driven old timers.
