Okay, I am actually thinking about adapting this case to an ATX board. Am I nuts? As I have dealt with these issues and am looking at having to replace the board, it is broadening my thinking. First big issue would be the PSU being in the way. I think that is the biggest issue and possibly the killjoy. But, I was looking around for different sizes of PSU and I think the 1U PSUs would work pretty nicely. Since I am not using giant video cards in SLI and I am using all low power consumption 2.5" HDD, I am sure 460W would be fine. The one I was looking at was 3.9" x 8.66" x 1.56". I think it would lay in the bottom nicely. It would leave about 1.5 - 2" of room in front of the board for the bottom connectors but with it only being 1.56" high, the wires could come up past or better yet just run along the bottom of the board. All but the bottom couple PCI slots would be easily usable but, I wouldn't need all of them. At 8.66" long, it would leave enough space between it and the H50 radiator.
What do you guys think? Am I nuts?

@HenryParry- You should hold off on getting the h70 until the h60 comes out. Should be coming out with in the next couple weeks as February is when it should be released.

there is no way you could get a full atx board in the case. the board would be simply just be too big. i think the overhang on a atx board would also hit the optical drive bays too.

The only thing I'd worry about is tubing length. The tubing used is shorter than the h50's, which was a bit of a stretch for me to run in a push-pull config in the front fan bay... Unless you plan on running it elsewhere.

I'll be interested to see how it turns out for sure smile.gif

mATX is 244 x 244 mm. ATX is 305 x 244. 244 being the front to back of the case dimension. so it wouldn't conflict anymore than the mATX board does. Vertically the inside dimensions of the case are about 330mm. Seems like it would fit to me.

Ohh, damn. I was under the impression both of them were the same length!

What is the ABSOLUBTE BEST closed water/air cooling this case can handle? I'm using a 880GMUD-2H Motherboard for referrence.

I've got like 145mm between Motherboard and side - this case is SO restricting!

You probably could do it if you flipped your mobo tray upside down like this fellow: http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-work-logs/873316-finished-adaptation-nzxt-vulcan-finished-final.html
