PC case sounds really ridiculous though, it stops being a classic Amiga if it looks like any off market PC.
IDE is way more flexible interface than CF (lets you use with very cheap and widely available adapters: SSD, SATA HDD, CDROM, DVDROM, CF, SDCARD, TFCARD, etc) and cheaper to manufacture (and if you want CF you can fit a $2 adapter from ebay or buy the one that Jens manufactures).

A PC case is not ridiculous, after all the A4000T was a PC case, and you cant argue that it wasnt an Amiga. PC cases are abundant, Amiga wedge cases are scarce, always used (you cannot buy a new one) and not in the best shape, since they are more than two decades old yellowed plastic suff.
