I second the request for external SMA connectors OR at least the holes in an area that is considerate of optimal placement as well as the needed space for the pigtail connector on the inside of the case. I modified the titan case but the only space for the antennas was on the top middle sides... and there was more tension on the SMA to pigtail connector than I'd like!
I really like this case design, particularly the consideration for the traditional DC power supply. One other suggestion; can you utilize a screw in locking DC female jack? I would pay extra for the case with matching screw in DC adapter for sure.

I will give a try to find an improved solution for antenna, better if I have another board to play with, the only one I have I use it extensively.
The DC female jack is in fact very similar with the left one in the picture you have indicated. If the screw doesn't exist, the surrounding aluminium composite panel, which is in fact only one piece bended, could not be fixed at the ends to ensure a single uniform aspect. Also, inside the case, to avoid any problems with back and forth mechanical stress, the jack is fitted and glued inside an acrylic part secured with screws from the rest of the case. So there is no chance to be broken!!
I design this case to be used inside other super-compact case (i9 / Mini-Itx) CAD/CAM workstation - as an external additional computer, plugged into the main one as an external device, connected with power using the DC female jack from workstation power supply directly.
