Hello guys... I am into silent pc computing from years and I built my rig around an awesome Antec Sonata 1.

I wanted to gift me a new case for Christmas and I searched ALL case manufacturers, but didn't found a single one that is good for my needs!

Antec Sonata seem to be the King... but I want to change it!!!

I "just" need:
5,25" external + 1x 3,5" external OR 3x 5,25" external (I have DVD, BD and a memory cards reader)
3x 3,5" internal (minimum!) that can be easily accessed by the front (same as in Sonata - I swap them a lot)
NO frontal door (this is what I hate most in my Sonata)
2x USB 3.0 and HD Audio jack on front (my Sonata is missing them)
Dimensions less or equal to Sonata: 42,5 x 46,5 x 21 cm (I only use mATX boards!)

Mission impossible! :(

SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E is pretty sweet. I have one myself.

It is a very nice case, but this HDs arrangement could be a problem for me:
