The front panel is technically upside down, i wanted the bay at the bottom, but now might be convenient to put it back at the top, will see. I shall have to get some updated photos taken as my cable management has got even better!
Great! Looking forward to it. Please include pictures of your heatsink mod as well. How many case fans and of which type do you have in there? Will a 450w supply be sufficient to drive all the fans?

Hope you don't mind being more specific.... What rubber needs trimming so that the sf524 fits securely onto the z77e itx ? I have the parts but have not built it yet. I thought the sf524 was one of the few trouble free coolers for the z77e itx. Also I presume the cooler will only fit in one direction - overhanging the RAM.

Thanks

Afraid i can not comment on the SF524, the talk was about the Noctua NH-U9B SE2, sorry.

Found a simple solution for getting the coolermaster back-plates (geminII S542 or hyper 212 evo) to work with this board.

The back plate does conflict with a transistor, so I just didn't use the back-plate. Piece of rubber then bolt on each screw. Might not be a good idea depending on your setup, but my mobo is horizontal in my case so there's almost no stress on the mobo from the weight of the cooler.

The rubber i'm referring to comes with the coolermaster kit, they are sticky on one side and would help prevent short circuiting anything as the metal bolts don't touch the mobo.

I was about to ask the same question, but about the u9b of course. so what exactly needs trimming?

I basically did the same thing here but I didn't trust the rubber ones. Any hardware store will carry plastic washers of the same size (I used ones with a smaller diameter hole actually). My board is horizontal as well. Not sure I would trust that hanging sideways on a flimsy board though.

i tried those rubbers at first but i did not trusted it (that's what she said), one of those collapsed when tightening the screws making the pressure uneven,
