Push/Pull is even better, great to hear that will fit. Yeah I prefer not to have to spend another $300 replacing the motherboard if I do not have to. I had this EVGA X58 Classified board for almost 6 years with no issues, so I am inclined to go for the EVGA X99 mATX. But I am just not to crazy on the decisions that EVGA made with their latest mATX X99 motherboard, like CPU socket spacing, top GPU is close to memory slot, and M.2 slot only support low profile SSD's, among other things.
What about the front Flex Bay, is it possible to have a dual bay reservoir and 120/140mm fan's mounted in the front?
