But first specify what you are really looking for? Your thread is also alot of if ors and maybes, just tell us what you gonna use it for.
I am looking at some smaller cases just to see if they match what I'm looking for. I noticed that there's an MSI 760 ITX Gaming card that is as short as at 750ti. I'd probably get that if I wanted something more powerful. For now, I'm looking at something that can be a htpc with a gaming option later. Except, I'll consider shorter gfx cards.

So, I'm looking at these cases for now:

Silverstone Elite 130
Sugo SG05
Lian Li PC-Q08

If size is no longer crucial or significant, I'm sure I'll choose the 250D.

Just purchase the 250D and it was awesome. Now for the buliding part.

Intend to do only minor OC to the GPU with the Maximus. Do i really need the H100i?

Wondering if the Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler is sufficient and be able to fit into the motherboard?

From what I read, if just a minor OC

I am pretty sure people are putting 780ti into this case.

hey guys. I currently have a 770.
I want to upgrade to an RoG card to match my build. I'm looking at the 780ti matrix.
link: http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/MATRIXGTX780TIP3GD5/

or get the 780 Posideon and make a custom loop just for the card and keep my h100i as my cpu cooler and just do a 140mm rad in the front of the case in push/pull with a res in the drive bay with the pump right under it, probably on a piece of soft foam so it doesn't make any noise. would that fit?

what do you guys reconmend? I want cool factor so if I water cool id have red coolant and probably have some cool red/white accent lighting.. BUT how often do I need to clean my loop and do other things for it?

what do you guys think? Stay with 770? or should I sell it and go for water cooled 780 or air cooler 780ti

single 780ti cant handle properly metro last night, not to mention that you wont find so many graphical advanced games around (crysis, metro LN, titanfall (?)) So imo no point from upgrading to 780ti now, just wait a little it will be worth it smile.gif

I have another question. Will a Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 fit in the 80mm slots? Sorry again for all the questions. I'll be able to answer most of this stuff for myself when my case gets here in two days.

I don't remember the specifics, but it's hard to fit much of anything with a 200mm. I found a lot of people it caused problems for when I was researching.

Edit: I also have a little update on my situation. That 240mm x 25mm radiator I found doesn't look very appealing after having researched it better. I guess I'm just going to have to give up and settle for the ASRock Z87E-ITX. It's a mid-range motherboard and I've never used an ASRock product before, but it's apparently the only way to get a 240mm x 30mm radiator to fit with reasonable fans. Thin static pressure fans don't seem to exist. I could only find two fans thin enough to work with one of the motherboards I wanted and both of them were pretty bad as case fans and totally worthless as radiator fans. I knew I'd probably have to make sacrifices with such a small case so whatever. I'll live.
