Waiting on this. E-ATX and will fit bh7.

Out now, ATX.

Depending on ram height, will go with dark rock TF or nh-c14s for cooler.

I am hoping to see some new matx. I really eat the smaller bh4.

I didn't even looked at that but I would suggest YouTube computex 2016 as a start. Right now it's full of e3 coverage though. Now that I think about it, matx x99 is limited. That would be neat in bh4.

Is it a terrible idea to get a really big graphic card and sacrifice a fan slot or should I try get one that fits without removing a front fan?

I'm in the same boat as u. My cards are 300mm and been testing no intake fans on my old case to see temps. But I think I will get a card that's at 282-295mm for fans to fit.

If my next cards are more then 282 but less than 295mm, I will get these fans.

I'm planning to get a 1080 but most of the models that arent FE are too long. EVGA (and MSI) would fit but it looks like butt, I really like the zotac one but its 300mm. Not sure what to do yet, but with how criminally ugly the shorter ones are I'm leaning towards fashion>performance. Going to look a little more to see what would work with a slim fan

Get a non window version so u won't see the cards. Jk.

Have u seen the gigabyte extreme something. Zotac amp extreme might be a little too big.

I thought about just using my ty143 as intake but have it ramp up on gpu temps.

Keep in mind the 282 mm max GPU is assuming a 25mm fan. So technically a 300 mm card would fit. What I would do in that situation would be to mod a fan or two where the window would go if the stock cooler on the card couldn't handle the temps. I suspect you'd be fine though, as there is a ton of air movement thru the case even if you only use 3 of the 4 120 mm spots.

Already ordered windowed version ofc (wonder how many didn't!)! I was thinking of the non extreme zotac that is 300mm. Maybe I could tape a fan on the outside but that would be too ghetto for such a nice case, or just shave off a few mm on the plastic on the GPU and fan biggrin.gif

Well this is reassuring. I'm no aerodynamics scientist but I figured maybe all the air would just go over the CPU then out the back and leaving the graphics card in its own hot pocket, but if I have 2 intakes on top (1 in front) maybe they would create enough positive pressure to make the air go everywhere or something? or maybe the fans on the GPU itself does a good enough job to push its hot air into the case so it gets caught in the "current".

It's just one of those things you'll want to test. Get it all setup stock and then see what your temps look like at idle and under load. If it's acceptable to you, then great. If not, you can mod the window to add a fan. All you need is a drill bit and a hole saw. If no hole saw, then a dremel, router, jigsaw would work too. Plenty of guides out there for adding a fan to an acrylic panel. It's an easy mod if you need to go that route.
