It is like the Corsair 250d ( which only works if you use a H100i closed loop .) it is a one trick pony .
Personally , after years of using a dremel and a pop riveter to achieve what I want , I would rather put my own holes in the cases particularly the roof .
The original Antec Sonata was a good one for modding , good quality steel too and before the various Antecs there were the InWin uATX cases and Chieftec workstation towers .
none came with good airflow or rad support , but it was easily modded in . Much harder to mod out cheap mediocre to low quality steel with unnecessary holes to make it work properly .
Just a note my first overclock was a 166 pentium oc to 200 mega hertz ( by moving a single jumper and adding a fan to a passive heatsink .
I am still looking for 2 ITX cases one for a machine with 3 x 3.5 and 1x 2.5 drives air cooled , and one for my Impact vii with a Corsair h100i ant at present a gtx 780 graphics card and no I am not interested in having the rad in the front !
