Catching up a little... been keeping busy with all the new orders. Thought I'd answer anything that hasn't been covered yet (or add some extra info where I can)...

What bothers me is that the only available PSU for me would have to be the Silverstone 450w. Almost all reviews of that PSU on Newegg complain about the very very loud fan in it. That would usually not be an issue for me as I would just get a better fan for it. Nut here real estate is at a premium.
So, would there be enough room on the PSU to mount an fan on top of it where the 80mm fan is? This fan would be placed on.top of the other already installed fan. If you can understand what I mean here. I can mod a shroud for it. But would there be enought room there? A100mm or 120mm fan maybe?
Looks like quite a few ppl are thinking of switching out the fan, but honestly I don't understand what all the fuss is about. Maybe I got lucky and got a quiet one because even when I load it up (folding @ 100% CPU and GPU usage, all of it overclocked) I get a little coil whine but that's the worst of the noise. IE no PSU fan noise that's worse than the other fans in the system (AP-15s in my case).

SAE 6-32, Metric M3 and Metric M4?
Did do some Googleing but not sure what im looking at/for.
Nice, let us know when you have a confirmed number.

These last ones are the screws that are often used in PC cases for mounting various parts like PSU and expansion brackets. If you don't know which radiator you're going to get, then pick the screws from which are harder to find in your country. I mean, SAE 6-32 is easy to find in US, while M3 screws are easy to find in Europe.
Looks like I need to add a FAQ question about this. I would encourage everyone to pick screws that will work with the rads they plan to use (or at least pick based on what you will most likely use). I say this because what's included are fully-threaded, countersunk, hex-head screws, and matching nuts will also be included that are there to add space between the air filters and fans (because I had interference issues on the prototype). Everything that'll be included is commercially available (at least in the US), but not what you commonly get with other cases or would otherwise have around the house. I'd hate for someone to order and wait a month to get their case only to start assembling it and find out their supply of extra 6-32/M3/M4 screws aren't the same. Don't panic if you already ordered... you'll have a chance to change your selection when I send out order confirmations next week.

Thanks! The P8Z77-I Deluxe will fit perfectly. I actually used a model of one for the original design, and fun fact: the off-center 240 rad was originally placed to allow airflow past the daughterboard of the Asus mobo. Later I switched to an ASRock board but really liked the design so left it largely as-is.
