instead of making a nother plate for the old psu place. making the rest of the atx board useless.

do u have a old case u could butcher and put the motherboard ioports in? so u can use the rest of the ports..

other wise u might as well get a micro atx board.

For now I'm going to just whack a thin sheet of plastic in, just until I decide to go SLI.

Will definitely do. Funding's the issue right now but we'll see, should be able to complete the mod within a week.

I haven't been able to do much in the way of modding since I moved out here. Apartment complexes are not dremel-on-metal friendly I'm going to cut up my Sugo 05 a bit when I can, mainly to add a window and a few other touches

Aah I see. I'm excessively new to PCs and such - 2 weeks ago I wouldn't have known what an ATX motherboard was. I use my PC for a buisness of sorts and performance of CPU/Ram is essentially directly linked to my profits, so I'm just trying to max out my PC whilst the money's coming in good. I'm just praying that the PSU will be fine without any air getting to the fan. Though saying that, it doesn't seem to have much air flow even with the grill at the bottom. I'm probably going to whack a 120mm intake in it's place when the grill's not got the PSU on.

I think this can be done.. but just my two cents... if you have an old case with pcie bays I would try and add them on to the case like lighthead(sp?) said - Hopefully you know a little welding (esp if it's aluminum)? That would let you use the bottom pci bays if you chose to do so. You may want to make the case a back to front airflow case and change all of the top fans to intake? I dont see how youre going to get good airflow with a PSU blocking the front intake and will be blocking almost all of the air from the front fan. Leave the hole in the bottom (psu) and put a good fan down there so you have decent airflow to your graphics cards. Cable management will be a pain for you too, but I wish you the best of luck with your mod

What is the biggest cpu cooler I can fit on the case with a 200mm fan on the side panel?

I was looking at the Noctua NH-C14. Will that fit? I have the Mushkin Memory sticks and th e 2 top 120mm fans attached, just fyi.

I'm interested in Noctua cooling due to their really good reviews but if anyone can recommend a better if not equal and/or cheaper alternative, I'm open to suggestions.

On stock cooling, I'm hitting around 105C when all threads are running and idles at 45C to 50C. I can't even run anti-virus without my temp red lining cause all threads will run.

Thank you.

Without the fan attached there is roughly room for 160mm cooling system. Since most fans are 25mm thick, that would leave 135mm tall. I would try to stay under that. I have a Coolermaster 212+ installed without a side fan, and I only have a little room before the grill.
The Cooler master 212 does really well on my i5 2500k, there it runs at a stable 4.9GHz and only hitting a max temp of 73 degrees Celsius with 50 passes of the Intel Burn Test

The Noctua NH-C12P SE14 will apparently fit, so I'd imagine the C14 should as well, though even if it does, it'll be very close to the side fan.
