Thanks for getting back. Do you think if was in push (or pull) config using the front fan only, would the bay be available?

Also what AIO where you using here?

I would stick with a push/pull setup. When I tried a single fan in pull it maintained a decent idle temp but during benchmarks it was really hot. Too hot. The AIO I was using was the Corsair H75 which worked great for that case.

Deciding that blue theme with blue LED's wasn't going well and switched to white light. Looks much better now.

White wires made it today. Not sure if it looks better or not. But if anyone is interested in those blue/black wires for an EVGA PSU I showed earlier in the thread send me an email Barry.m.becker@outlook.com. I'll send you the lengths and what wires are included.

Thanks. I picked up the EX120 and flushed it out last night. I can't wait to start testing it out. I was planning on doing a GPU only loop but I got a Apogee Drive II free (used) after I got another pump (Topsflo TDC). Thanks to your build and @mfilos build, I have some planning to do.

Apogee Drive II is perfect for ITX buillds like this.

Hello everyone. I just joined this forum and greetings from Bangladesh. I've wondering about a Mini ITX build since I've seen this thread. Without further talking here goes some of my PC pics! smile.gif
Please leave your comments whatever you feel..
Edit: The Picture continuity just came out wrong! I hope you guys will understand. tongue.gif Sorry for the long post!

Specs:
Intel Core i5 6500 Skylake
I don't know exactly from which PC i got the cooler but it performs like a mid level Liquid Cooler with those 4000~6000 RPM 60mm Industrial fans. Even keeps temp just under 70 without fans!!
Asus B150I Pro gaming /Aura
Avexir ROG Impact 2666Mhz 8GBx2
Adata SP550 480GB SSD
Crucial M4 120GB SSD
Western Digital Blue 500GB HDD
Sapphire HD7970/280X Ghz OC With boost cooled by Asus Matrix Platinum 7970 Cooler and Custom Led light controller.
Huntkey X7 900W 80+ Silver PSU. Problem?
Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX with Fully customized interior, cooling system and external looks.

3.9mm drill bit didn't work for me... any other suggestions on drilling out the rivets? Decided not to go this route.

Hey everyone, so I have a Cooler Master 120 Advanced case and I'm looking for ways to make it quieter and cooler.

I moved the front big fan and I put it in the drive cage putting air into the motherboard, but I've seen a lot of people removing the drive cage itself, is it worth it? (how do you remove it) and how do you then secure the ssds and hdds?
It has no GPU yet, and I was thinking to buy a RX 460 just for CS:GO because that's all I play.
One thing I also have trouble with is the cable management, how the hell do you manage to get a clean build with a non-modular PSU?
