Airflow is pretty good in the case. Heat rises up to the vents up top and the case fans all blow up that way too.

It's not that cramped. It's one of the bigger mATX cases I've worked with.

Don't give him a hard time for giving you the correct answer, IF you're the expert, then why are you here asking US ?

Don't know if you're "revison B" means your backplate is this one ...



... but IF you have the OLD big clunky backing plate then yeah, buy the new one from the Scythe Mug 3
No , my backplate is this one:



and please i'm not a dumb, that i wouldn't know about compatibility with socket 1155 ... i have just found that one guy had problem to fit this backplate on asus p8p67:
he had to cut it lol..

But finally i found on other forum, that scythe mugen 2 probably fit with asus gene-z motherboard:

Yes they will install but they won't run if the RealTek driver is not installed. At least that was the problem I had. I thought I installed it but in fact it was only the Win7 HD Audio driver that was installed when I tried to run any X-Fi installed program.

Any thoughts on a build like so -

Case: Silverstone TJ08-E
MB: Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z
CPU: i5-2500k
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2
PSU: Corsair AX-750
GPU: MSI GTX 560ti Twin Frozr II OC
RAM: G.Skill RipjawsX 2x4GB DDR3 1600 (F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH)
HDD: 2x 2.5" Western Digital Scorpio Black 500GB (WD5000BPKT)

Let me know if you see anything wrong here.

I was also considering the Asus P8Z68-V Pro MB. Found it hard to compare that MB to the Maximus Gene-Z. Seems that the P8Z68-V Pro has a lot of bells and whistles that I'd never use.

Just because it's cramped doesn't mean the airflow is worse. In fact I feel as if it could be better due to the components being closer to the fans. When I had a HAF912 loaded with fans, my temps went UP for nearly everything except my CPU due to the fans not being able to reach the components to cool them.

That's weird. I'm using just the the Win7 driver and the X-Fi software installed and is working just fine.

I personally wanted a decent case with the smallest footprint. My last case was a HAF932, and I got tired of having such a massive PC.

I think it's a great looking case and the 90 degree motherboard mounting is pretty neat imo. It may look small but I managed to fit everything I needed in there.

Haha, yeah I did tighten them a little too much. No problems so far though.
