Personally, i think its best to place the psu fan facing up, specially for my case, with a PSU like Seasonic X660 being passive under light load, the heat will rise up and go out through the TJ08E upper hole, and when needed it will start up and pull fresh air to cool itself, the other way around idk, bieng passive and heat of the case raises to psu might not be ideal, i like the psu being a semi independent system from the case, specially for a semi passive psu, like the ravens. By the SPCR review and other users, i see the 180mm case fan does a great job, at least on the gpu side, better than average, so i dont think i want to tamper with a PSU or that will need the PSU to help the case, that said, maybe a fully active psu would help clear warm air, although i seen this is not always the best route. The positive pressure will exit air through all the holes around the case, and with help of the optional 120mm, at least thats what i think.

Btw thanks again for the re measuring, really good info, although not completely sure it will be helpful to me as its another mobo, ill post the GeneZ with a meter on top from the CPU socket to the PCI bracket in case its useful to someone, once i get my stuff smile.gif

Im still a little worried though, i just received the Galaxy GTX580, btw its amazing this card, 30C idle on 30% fan speed on antec 1200. The backplate is very nice but it does add thickness, ill post some pics soon, an aprox measurement is 5mm, so thinking on your 77mm and that HR02 is 140 (70mm each side) = 70+5 = 75 vs 77 you measured, this is all hypothetical atm as the GeneZ might be closer or further... but either way its going to be extremely close.

This would be interesting, although for none modular might be a pain to flip smile.gif

With that card, it's a good thing you ordered that cooler and not a Silver Arrow or NH-D14.
Thanks for the info, i took a pic of the backplate, its between 4 n 5 mm,

p1000613o.jpg

So if your calculations are correct about the gene Z, its going to be 70mm (half of HR02) + 5mm (gpu backplate) = 75 < 76.4 (estimated distance) smile.gif i have 1.4mm of margin. But for sure the Silver Arrow NH-D14 would not fit with the backplate, hopping the backplate gives rigidity to the card so doesnt bend some with the weight.

Edit: By remove it, I mean the support on top of the hard drive cage.

According to nagle3092, you can fit a 3.5 still on the bottom and ssd or 2.5 drive below it, i cant say for sure as i dont have it yet, but just in case i order the bracket for dual 2.5 into 3.5. Btw thanks for the anandtech link, reading now smile.gif

This was also my choice, but i just couldnt wait, all other stuff was already on route, so just pull the trigger on performance pc and suffer shipping n tax frown.gif, but it would been more expensive to ship it by air to guatemala ($2.75x lb and the case boxes weights 28lbs), i still needed some other stuff like paste, fans, cpu cooler, so the shipping was dilueted some, at least thats what i tell my self so i can sleep at night tongue.gif.

On the bright side, amazon changed their shipping estimate, from we will mail with an estimate to,

Usually ships within 2 to 4 weeks.

Hi guys,

I'm from Singapore and waiting for the arrival of this beautiful case here as well. Information receive from the local distro is that it would be available in the 3rd week of Aug. Would be migrating my current hardware from my Lian Li V350 over to this.

Just purchased a Corsair H60 cooler yesterday night for this as well.
