yes, definitely.

Awesome. I loved how big my A70B was, but that was before I got packed into a tiny on-campus apartment. rolleyes.gif

You have a lot of stuff in your case so air space will be a premium. I suggest two things, highest priority will be cutting a top exhaust. I use a 2x120mm GT config under a fan controller. Second you will want to get your PSU some air, so that being said, bump your drives up as high as possible to give your psu some air space since the fans are typically facing up. Or cut out the bottom for a psu intake and mount it upside down. I'm not sure about the noctua+ripjaw clearance, but I think you should be fine (that is a epic ram config btw... kinda excessive id imagine but to each their own purpose).
You will probably want to rip out the fans and get some high performance fans or you will have a whirling component death machine.... or just not get as high of clocks you want wink.gif.
Seems like a pretty epic setup and the 1200 is way overkill. a 850 or so would be just fine I imagine, you should try to use your current PSU, and then upgrade if you need to. A way to test what you need is to put it all together with the 750, then if it doesn't turn on pull low wattage components out till it boots and then you will know how close you are and can estimate what efficiency you are going for wink.gif ( With my current setup my PSU fan very rarely kicks on and when it does it isn't for very long. so i imagine it has quite a bit of headroom.)
(Currently I have a H80 push pull GT setup in the back as intake, the front is intake blowing over the top of my PSU fan with no HDD cage, and I have a gaping hole for 2x120mm fans I'm installing in the top and cooling is very cool in the bottom half of my case. In the top I have 2x 2tb greens a Xonar DX and a lightning 580 with the bottom intake fans just pushing air up with no exhaust as of yet, it gets pretty warm to the touch but nothing critical by any means.)

Thanks Hairy. I already have the aftermarket top with the 140mm fan, and several other additional fans. And I have replaced all of the stock fans with better units. Do you have any pictures showing your setup? I'd like to see how the cards layout. smile.gif

This is the biggest little case I have ever seen, and I absolutely love it. Why people need a ridiculous looking PC, I don't know. The reason I actually went with this case was because I know I will be able to fit it in whatever living scenario I end up in once I move out to a college "residence". Plus it's a nice heater for us cheap college students wink.gif.

I only have 1 580, and the wire management is completely ridiculous in this picture lol (just threw it in to get it working/not out all over my desk). I'll take a MUCH better pic when I get home tongue.gif. This pic is like a month old and even before I painted the internal frame, which looks quite sexy I might add.

In this pic it looks like the GPU is sitting under my drive, but In reality there is a decent gap. I'll make sure the emphasize it in the pic I take when I get home.... which reminds me I need to update/fix my build log....

I've got one of these little beauties that is currently stripped down awaiting parts for the top panel blow hole....

I do have a few questions....

1- Has anyone integrated the PCI-01 into the A05? I have one that I salvaged off of my old PC-K62, I'd love to re-use it.

2- does anyone have any ideas for a nice 3.5" bay fan controller? I'd like it to be able to handle 4 fans, preferably without any LED's or other crap unnecessary lighting. I'll probably end up modding my 3.5" blank as the faceplate.

Sparhawk9441 - Figured I would get strait to the point.

From the front of the case to the back of my HDD is 6.5" (remeasured without holding the phone in one hand wink.gif ), between my HDD's and my GPU (12") is about 1 cm (being generous).

Pics of my setup (lighting on top, lighting on bottom) I need to get a better lighting setup still but need to paint/sleeve and cover a few things fist so I know what I'm really working with.
