I probably might not buy this case in the end. I'm now more leaning to making a custom case for my next SFF build. About the size of a Dan A4 and same layout, but it will also accommodate a GPU with a hybrid liquid cooler.

The case will have a metal front and top with clear acrylic side panels. I have figured out the outer measurements of this case and it will be 8.5 L, a mere 1.25 L more than the Dan A4.

Meh, Noctuas Homepage says that the NH-L9a is not compatible to the MSI A88X ITX V2 Board.

Exactly. All the Noctua fans I've had are real quiet but any of them up against a grille can make some noise at medium to higher RPMs from the turbulence.

Its not a big problem when its gonna to be a little bit noisy. I can really deal with that. and if not - i have Headphones biggrin.gif
Single hdd for boot and storage are so slow after using an ssd. I tried it recently and it sucked. I have an SSD in my htpc for os. Just so much smoother. Could you stack an ssd with the hdd?

Stacking Could work, dont know. I have a SSD in my HTPC oft OS, toi. Ans yes, it runs very smooth smile.gif.
I think i have to switch to the ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ for Compatibility with the Noctua NH-L9a. You can also switch the WiFi/Bluetooth Card for a mSATA SSD.

The FM2A88X-ITX+ has a great layout, I use a CM GeminiiS and RIpjawsX RAMs without problems. And I put a 32GB SSD mSATA just for the OS and a 2TB HDD for games and storage.

My sole complaint about that thing is that it can't take mSATA and mini PCIe simultaneously. I don't think it would be too difficult to do, even it it meant two cards stacked on top of each other. Some thin mITX boards do this, for example.

Good to hear, thanks. Its more a question of the case - i want one as small as possible with hardware as strong as possible - the M350 is well perforated, and AMDs A10-7xxx APUs are extremely interesing in iGPU Power.

Sorry to distract from the build, but that is one nicely designed build-log! Really easy to follow.
