So is there any way to put a 970 in this baby without cutting holes into it? I know there's an ITX version of the 970, but what about the heat?

The heat issue it usually caused by the hdd mount on the bottom of the case. If you remove that and relocate the hdds there is enough breathing room for the gpu.

I cooked a 650ti because of those drives, but my 750ti acx (I know, its not a hot card to start with) stays stupid cold in this case.

Just make sure you dont have tons of extra wires blocking your front fan. If possible, get a modular psu and cut the wires down so they are just long enough to plug into things.

Nice Build with the screen attached!

I'm leaning towards getting the TU200 for the added size. Should give me plenty of room to insert the Ipad screen into the side of it. May take me awhile since I'm working on a custom water cooled build at the same time. I'll keep y'all updated!

Does a 350 - 450w SFX PSU (modular) even exist?

€: Yes, it does. Silverstone Strider Gold, for 100 €...

That's the psu most of us use in here. When doing the 24 pin plug, make sure you go pin by pin because its not 1 to 1, the pins are mirrored and goofy.

Only strange thing is, unlike the 300w and 600w (and the 500w), the 450w Silverstone sfx doesn't have the semi-passive fan.
post #377 of 1439
But, the 450w unit has a great feature.... you can put a noiseblocker fan in it to make it near silent. The other models I dont believe can do that.

I think the 450 is the sweet spot for this case. Anything more and your just asking for overheating... after all, if your pulling 600w then your also trying to cool 600w worth of electronics with very little airflow.

That's a lot of work to replace the fan in the 450w instead of spending a bit more for the 600.

The temps on the 600w shouldn't be much different when pulling less power. May not be quite as efficient at lower loads and, unfortunately, reviews show the 600w isn't as reliable as the less powerful models.

Its actually not that bad on the modular 450w psu. You just take out 4 screws, unplug the old fan, cut the wire off the old fan, put those wires to the new fans wires and plug it back in. Then screw the case back together. takes about 15 minutes.

The Zotac 970 with two fans do fit if you cut out the front portion of the inner cage if im not mistaking. dont quote me though.

*EDIT* It will fit, the card is 204mm and the case is 252mm smile.gif
