And an inner, bottom fed, air duct:

I think I might just use that idea biggrin.gif Then I can also keep the front of the case "hole-less" Thanks!! thumb.gif

I had some trouble in the past trying to screw that on there with the ordinary screws from a case.

Also, I'd drop the mobo about an inch to allow for a radiator to fit in the top whenever you like.
Im haveing them attached to a backplate from an older case I painted, and the backplate will be screwed to the inside of the case, so the access to the gpu is unobstructed. I'll post some pics this afternoon to show you what I'm talking about.

I'm going to move it down anyway, because I just remembered that the CPU power plug is towards the top biggrin.gif

Ok very nice, thank you smile.gif

Aha I see. Also, how will you handle cable management ? Double sidewall with the cutouts in the first one ? That's how I did it but it was rather time consuming.

Keep it up thumb.gif

I have a space between the side door and the backplate, which will have cutouts. Just like a normal case biggrin.gif
