Todays update: I made two stands from aluminium. And fit there Corsair H80. But I think i will have trouble with normal mATX (24x24cm motherboard). I have now shorter one for testing now. I think i will buy some miniITX.

OR

Second way is to place power supply to front of case. And have H80 on the back.

Nice. Are you making a vent in the front to give the rad fresh air?

If i will stay with this layout, I have already marked place for some 80x80 vent, witch will fit great on side.There is a lot of space between side and plastic |) >> | - side, ) - pastic << Hope you know, what I mean biggrin.gif.


Add: At front will be OUTtake. I want to place INtake fan between corsair and gpu.

Damn.. With this layout wont be mATX build possible....

Only way is to place power supply on bottom of case and H80 on back above motherboard >>> but its sooo close to GPU. (photo incomming)


I think I will buy ASROCK Z77E-ITX in the future. So it would be possible to stay with this layout.

Power supply located at bottom. With space for cables and part of power cable has to be inside.

BUT there is like 1cm of space.

Maybe I should cut bottom and make it deeper.

Nice work so far. thumb.gif

There are other ways to get things to fit into a G4 "El-Capitan" enclosure, here's a pic from the one I modded a few years ago where I moved the PSU location to the bottom of the case.

(Link to build log in my sig if you want to see what I did)

Good luck with the rest of the mod, subbed!

Your build was reason, why I said "Yessss I have to buy this piece of apple ... steel and mod it." smile.gif)))

Your solution is great, but my looooooong GTX275 cant allow it. frown.gif

But i think i will place it at bottom, I will buy mITX for sure (cause I'm thinking about bitfenix prodigy < it can fit only mITX).

Sorry for bad quality of photos!!

DAAAAAMN, I already hate H80 cooling! biggrin.gif I can't fit it anywhere... So I decided to try unusual place. I made custom stands from aluminium as u can see on photos. With these stands I can use mATX motherboard. So I don't know... go for mITX with asrock or get mATX..

Idea and me: buttkick.gif
Finally some great idea! As you can see below, I will place fan under case + radiator will be fixed to stands (have to make accurate one). So after closing side, it will fit up to bottom case fan(OUTtake from case). With this layout, I can use mATX format!!! (great!).

Only question is: If it matter, that H80 rad will be under pump. (I had H60, where is adviced to have pump under radiator)-
