You havae not listed an IR receiver/remote. Silverstone among others
build cases with builtin IR+VFD and come with a remote... for about $80
US over the bare case version.
If you don't mind the possibility of a scratch or two, check out the
'B-store' at Antec's web site...Reduced price for refurb units....
