people have a bigger is better mindset, like cases, mobos, GPU cooler (ahem gigabyte G1 and it is the best selling nvidia 970/980/ti cards) etc

makes me wonder how overkill and ridiculous having a G1 cooler on a 960 is

Anyway the side panel mechanism on Dan A4 is very similar to TU100(but you pull the sticking out part instead of using leaver to pop open the side panel) so I prefer the side panel mechanism on TU100.

With the current psu placement in Dan's A4, its the psu that's defining the length of the case.

On the left is the layout in Dan's A4, mid is a possible shorter case, and on the right is my proposed layout with an intake fan.

Are you sure thats not the IX-03B http://www.chieftec.eu/en/chassis/itx-tower/ix-03b.html with the hdd attachment?


No, i would remove them to use a SFX-L PSU.
The SG05 supports up to 262mm? Pretty good, on their homepage they wrote "up to 254mm", so i was a little bit worried about fitting my GTX 660 in it.
Does it make sense to replace the standard front fan with another 120x120x25mm fan like the EK Water Blocks Vardar F3 or Noctua NF-F12 or is the
standard fan powerful enough? And if it is recommended to replace the fan, is the Vardar or the NF-F12 a good choice?

And yes, you're right, it's the IX-03B + HDD attachment, sorry.

There's a FAQ section in the first post towards the bottom. Its hard to see unless you scroll down.
The specs has some 'wiggle room' since on some gpus, the power connectors are on the side.
Yes, you should replace the fan. I don't own any of those fans but reading online, the performance is similar. Go with the cheaper one.
I'm assuming you'll be using a 2.5" drive. Any idea where you'll be mounting it?

I added the ix-03 to the list.

I think the only Option is to mount it on the side or at the bottom. I will find a place for one or two 2,5" drives. Maybe 3,5" is to big to mount it without the drive HDD-Cage.

Nice build. The fan grills look great on it. How did you get the 970 in there? Was it vertically mounted with a riser cable?

I've been wanting to mod my ISK600 for quite a while now. For the past few days I have been working hard to make this happen.

Mod list
-Perforated side panels for GPU and radiator air flow
-Cut away to place the radiator along holes for mounting
-3rd SSD mounting under the 2x SSD caddy for moar SSD fun
-LED strip under the GPU
-Front panel LED removal (including HDD activity)
-GPU bracket with foam to keep the GPU properly placed (two side taped)
-Dremeled the fan for the CPU block bracket

Here is my Rosewill Legacy U2 build, being prepared for watercooling. I will be using soft tubing for now, but want to move to hard tubing for the final version.




You can see more in my build log.
