For the most part I agree but the case I used in this build was actually worth the price. This SG05 comes with a special itx form factor 450w psu with an 80 plus efficiency rating. The other itx cases that are $100+ and lack psus are rip offs.

Look what I picked up at Best Buy for $40 today



And when I got home I noticed I had some serious problems space wise. So the modding journey began, more out of necessity than choice.

First thing I did was cut off the 2.5" drive bay attached to the optical drive caddy and used a hot glue gun to attach the 3.5" drive caddy(which had to be modified a bit) in place of the 2.5" drive. I then had to cut the 4 screws supplied with the H50 to mount in to the front of the case.

I reused the scythe slim fan that came with the big shuriken cooler I originally purchased and cut two screws to mount it to the H50. I then cut the other two to fit the H50 to the front of the case.

Note: If your graphics card is the length of the case, or even a few inches from that, you're going to have clearance problems if you mount the H50 in this order:H50->Fan->Front of Case. I assembled the rig once that way and the graphics card was literally bending in half and overheating because the cooler wasn't making contact. Not to mention the 6pin was nearly impossible to attach and contributed to the board flexing.

The combo that works is Fan->H50->Front of case. I had no clearance problems using that config(The fan is pushing air from inside the case out the front.

And here is the finished product:


Note how close the end of the card is to the radiator:

Have you considered the single slot 6850?

I can fit dual slot cards, it's length that is the issue. I could use a 6850/6870 no problem as long as the coolers don't extend past the board. Anything bigger won't fit because of the H50.
