well I have a ASUS F1A75 m Pro and I made it fit with a little cutting tongue.gif
HERE I documented how I did it, its pretty easy. I just cut a very little indent off the inner lip of the mesh frame.
For anybody who has more info but doesn't recognize the HS, that is a Coolermaster 212 EVO wink.gif

@NXZ-MEAD - is it possible to rotate the orientation of the hsf? so that the hot air will be blowing on top exhaust fans.
post #1693 of 2409
It might be possible if you have low profile RAM, but if you have almost any heatsink in the RAM it will be too high to allow the CPU HS enough space.
If you are concerned about good airflow, don't be though. Even like this, the little case has extremely good airflow for its size.

I would like to note though, that the top fan is in exhaust configuration by default and the front fan is intake. I would like to switch these so as the top is intake and the front is exhaust, I just haven't done it because I have to remove the MB along with the HS (and that involve new thermal compound, which I don't have)

Bottom line: It *might* be possible if you have low profile RAM (I'm quite positive it is possible, but I can't confirm since I don't have any low profile RAM lying around)
It is not necessary though, just as long as you have the HS fans blowing AWAY from the RAM towards the back of the case.

ive seen some awesome case mods for this model and have some questions,

I have come across a few of you guys jamming in a corsair water cooler in the front rather than the rear or top.
Will a H60 mount on the top or the front?

Also for the modders out there that did a brilliant job. Upon viewing the mesh side of the case, it came to my attention that no dremel was to be required to take that mesh out, only bend the clips to take it out which is a breeze I think because I do not have a dremel. Will the clips snap off just in case I want to use that again?

What is the dimension of the acrylic I have to require to fit on the side. I also do not want to cut down on the acrylic because I don't own a dremel. I was just thinking of holding it down with industrial double sided tapes until I found out how to rivet it

That side panel was probably custom laser cut and etched. You can't buy it. tongue.gif


Also, if you plan on modding a case you should really invest in a Dremel tool. It makes like so much easier.

well this case in particular doesnt seem like a dremel is really needed. that mesh is just held by clips arent they?
post #1699 of 2409
The mesh probably, I meant when you are putting the acrylic on.
