Thanks for the info.

I think I'll go with the A05FN silver version, but there was a post about a manufacture defect. Do we have more news about this?

I might cut a slot in the 3.5 bay and stick my fan in there to exhaust hot air from my gpu.

how well would air circulate with an i7 and gtx285 in a stock A05 case (without the top fans, cause i dont want to cut into it)?

i'm worried the smaller case without top air vents will overheat?

Here's another mATX case with better stock airflow IMO. It can also fit high-end air coolers like the D14 and Silver Arrow. biggrin.gif

Just finished cramming everything from my ATCS 840 into this case. Wow, it's so much tighter, yet it doesn't look as messy. I added two fans to the bottom of my case, so I couldn't install my CPU cooler the way I wanted, so now it is pushing air up with only one fan attached to it. I am a little bummed by this, but whatever. It might force me into water cooling... Overall though, I really like this case. White and black paint job is sexy as well. Now I just need to get my hands on some sleeving and a spare set of PSU cables so I can hack them up and sleeve them to match my color scheme better. I'll post pics when I find sometime with good lighting.

When you figure out a way, tell me. biggrin.gif

it may be still there, but imo very minimal effect if any on the motherboard. plus you wont notice it at all when the case is closed. if you were the really picky kind however...
