Some fittings for tubes
black tube
DDR 3 Memory
lots of fans wink.gif
2 x HD6970 PCS+ (there is only room for one)

My plan is to integrate this things in the case.
I made some pictures:

The ST45 is too high for bottom mounting. So this one will get on the side. There will be a little more room because of the Silverstone SFX.
For the 92mm in the back is a low ITX mainboard needed with less as possible USB ports wink.gif
A 30mm slim Radiator should fit on the bottom with Scythe Slip Stream fans.
I do need a watercooling bracket for the HD6970. I need the Rev2 because my Powercolor HD6970 pcs+ has the new board layout.
There is no room left for a pump with water container. So maybe a Fractal design kelvin would be a solution.

On the list:
ITX 1150/1155 board with 4 core CPU
Fractal Design Kelvin t12/s24
Silverstone SG600 SFX
Some more black tube, fittings, some water wink.gif
Coolerplate HD6970

Its very at the beginning but I just wanted to let you know whats maybe possible with that case.
Sorry about the quality of the Pics. These were just some shots biggrin.gif

Very nice sir! Do you have/plan a build log?

There is not really a plan. I just saw how many parts I have left in boxes and I dont want them just laying around smile.gif

I do need a ITX 1150/1155 Mainboard with low aio panel:

Thats just a piece of a box where I made a custom aio panel to know what Mainboard to get.

Maybe ASRock H81M-ITX/WiFi or a MSI H81I. Others do have to much USB/VGA or Lan ports. smile.gif


(Numbers are in mm) wink.gif

does this case support full size psus?
post #164 of 179
yes but you will be very limited to 140mm long. The cooler master VSM is 140mm long

That one is on my list Peg, the EVGA happened to pop up in my feed as on sale. It through me off because they didn't have L/W/D proper in the original ad when I checked. It was only $70 that is why II asked tongue.gif

"Looks to be "inspired" by the NCase M1" ... well, if this turns out to be half as entertaining as the Thermaltake vs Caselabs thing, count me in! thumb.gif
