EDIT: any more pics of AIO coolers being mounted in side?
What mobo? what washers? any tips for installing it INSIDE the case? how thick is your rad? Is the aio loud?
any body know what all AIOs will fit?
I suppose it is a bit on the larger side for mini itx, but I needed my new case to have at least one decently placed intake and exhaust fan, ability to house a hydro cooler, side window, able to hold a decent non sfx power supply (I wanted it silent) and nice aesthetics. my only other options were the 250d, air 240, node 804 etc, which have a larger footprint - I did look at smaller cases such as the Compact Flash, but they are just too hard to get hold of!
Motherboard: Asus Z97I Plus
AIO: Corsair H75 - not sure how thick it is, but it's one of the slimmer ones, bought it to fit into my Hadron Air initially
Washers: the silver washers and screws came with the case, probably meant for the PSU
Noise: the whole system is almost silent, thanks to the Aerocool fans (replaced the Noctuas, they were horrible)
No tips really, if the radiator fits it will just slide in, if possible get a network cable that is flat or bendy as you're going to have to squash that in with a bit of your radiator
Build is nearly done:
photos don't really do it justice (especially phone photos, sorry) it's strange looking at lit components through smoked glass when the PC is on!
