I did design this case for your everyday user who won't be going uber l33t in this case lol. It is meant for mid to high end systems such as mid range X99 CPUs and all ZXXX CPUs and mid range GPUs like the 980, 970, and maybe one AMD card since they're so power hungry lol. V2 of this case will feature support for full size ATX PSUs. But... I may have to look into adding compatibility for V1 so I can reach a larger market.

600W is sufficient for dual 980s and a Haswell-E at stock clocks, I've crunched the numbers and 700W is enough for SLI reference 980Ti's and Haswell-E but there isn't much room for overclocking.
We need to get hollering then and get some larger wattage SFX PSUs!

Me too! Unfortunately, they broke a tool while punching out my case and it took the piece of steel my case was on. Should be running it tomorrow
