Someone with a Q07 mind helping me on measurements?

Is there enough room to mod the back/top of the case to mount a sfx 450 psu in a regular horizonal position off-center at the top above the i/o shield? Having the intake fan at the top and exhaust out the back?
Where the blue box is.

I've ordered the parts for my PC-Q11 to my littlesisters Christmas present.
Spent a fair amount of time selecting the best parts for a facebook nympho with a hang to play a few games.

ASUS P8H77-I
Silverstone SST-ST50F-P
SilverStone SST-PP05 Short cable set
Intel Core i3-3225
Corsair Vengeance Series Blue DDR3-1600, CL9 - 8GB Kit
Intel 330 Series 2,5 Zoll SSD, SATA 6G - 180GB
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti, 1024 MB DDR5, PCIe 3.0, Mini-HMDI, DVI
NOCTUA NH-L9i Low profile CPU cooler - LGA115x (NH-L9i)
NOCTUA 140x140 NOCTUA NF-P14 FLX rt ( (NF-P14 FLX)

I have the PC-Q08 running for a couple of weeks now. Sound and heat production is OKE at idle, but sounds like an airplane while gaming smile.gif The problem I hope some of you guys can help me with is the aftermarket cooling question. I understand that the normal choice (Shuriken big2) will interfere with the PCI-E slot which I use with a HD7870.

My setup is; Asus P8H77-I, Intel I5-3450, 128SSD and Asus HD7870 DirectCUII.

Now I am thinking of replacing the CPU cooler with the Noctua NH-L9i, which I think is pretty expensive, but receives a very good review here:

http://www.rwlabs.com/article.php?cat=&id=744

Am I missing good alternatives here?

The most noise comes from the HD7870. The directCUII cooler is silent at idle, but when you start gaming it will surprise you with vacuumcleaner like noises. The space from the bottom to the HD7870 is limited though, so I can imagine that not every cooler will fit, or will work optimal due to the small space between the "floor" and the fan.

What are your experiences? Tips and advices are more than welcome smile.gif
