Looks nice. Why not a ATX board over a mATX?

I was TJ08-E before this and didn't want to buy another motherboard just to fill up the case.

I have a fractal arc R2 mini incoming and i have a few questions. First question behind mounting an SSD behind the motherboard tray. I have a 850 evo incoming and i would like to mount this behind the motherboard tray but i feel like this is bad for the SSD? Will it get enough air behind it to keep it cool? My second question is i have a corsair h80i incoming and im wondering where the best place to mount this cooler in this case. Im guessing the rear exhaust area? Also, it was recommended by someone to mount it on the rear exhaust area and have it drawing cool air in from the outside. Will the top fan exhaust enough of the hot air I'm introducing to keep my case cool? I have a custom style cooler on my gpu and worry about overloading the inside with excess heat. I also ordered an extra 140mm fan to put it in the top if need be.

Depends on the SSD, really. Most won't have the slightest problem with it. Anand said the SSD 730 got really, really hot though...but the SSD 730 is strictly a desktop SSD and completely unsuitable for notebook use, unlike 99% of SSDs out there. I'd say your 850 Evo would do just fine. 

 

Mine is in the drive cage because I have two other HDDs and the G2 750's cables are too stiff for me to fit the panel back on if the SSD is in the back.

I have an 850 Pro mounted back there in my R5 and my temps range 30-35C, well within operating temps. Good cable management with decent air flow and you shouldn't have any problems. As far as which way to mount your cooler it's best to test different setups and see which one works best for you.

I have two SanDisk SSDs (mounted with screws) and one crucual SSd (two side taped) behind mobo tray and they run ~35*C all times. There really is almost no difference when they were in the cage behind front fan

here is my share, I present to you guys my lowly arc mini r2 build

cables are still messy and is a work in progress, would have gone full custom loop if not for budget constraints, ahaha!

It is really irritating that no one has the R5 windowed in white anywhere. I'm also tired of waiting and going with the Phanteks ETHO Luxe white. I am really disappointed in Fractal. I really wanted the R5 in white/windowed.
