1. get a PCIE riser/extension. that would reduce the size of the case even more. if you place the GPU behind the motherboard, this will separate the thermals of the GPU and the CPU making them have their own intake and exhaust.

2. mesh sides. that will help with the thermals even without additional fans which also helps in acoustics.

3. either aluminum or wooden boarders- these will make the case more sturdy

4. Modular Power Supply- this will help reduce the amount of cables by a lot. making it neater and have less clutter

5. make it drawer style with magnetic lock. this will make it easy for maintenance and upgrades.
