The acrylic has some small stress fracture where the standoffs are from the weight of the waterblock I wanted to use for this build lol

EDIT: Tried a second motherboard and it doesn't line up when an I/O panel is attached either. No clue I guess my back panel is defective or something. I guess I'll just use this case for plex. Glad I didn't break the bank on this case


Your IO panel is probably made of flexible material, just push a bit on your motherboard, I had the same problem.

I actually pushed as hard as I could. It fits on all my other cases fine but just has problems with this case. I'm going to take another try later.

Is the case assembled correctly? Could you slacken some screws holding the case together, get mobo in the re-tighten

The case is assembled correctly but I finally got it to work. The trick was to remove the back panel and set the motherboard on the stands then put the back piece back on to the case. It seems the screw holes on the back panel is a few mm off since its just a universal hole thats way bigger than the screw. Since I didn't have the motherboard attached, I just aligned the hole perfectly to the case. However , to make it work the back panel had to be offset a little but the screws still screws in fine. thumb.gif

Now I can finally get back to planning for this case. Just random part I put in for test fitting

Looks good so far. I forgot that this case could fit a 10 inch GPU. And nice to see that Z77 board even today with its full cover block. I really liked mine before I upgraded.

Finally, my Low Profile CPU-Cooler arrived yesterday (Silverstone Argon AR-05), so i started to put my new hardware in this tiny case (9.6L). The case only offers a single pci slot, so i had to mod it a little bit. I simply cut a hole in the back to mount the PSU above the CPU-Cooler.

Lets see how toasty it gets - looking around for a small case with a better Airflow smile.gif

Hardware:

Mainboard: ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+
CPU: AMD Athlon x4 860K, Black Edition
GPU: Club 3D Radeon R7 260X royalQueen, 2.048MB GDDR5 RAM
RAM: 2x 4.096MB G.Skill RipJawsX DDR3, 1.600MHz
PSU: be quiet! SFX Power 2, 300W Bronze
CPU-Cooler: Silverstone Argon AR-05

Ah thank you, that helped understand how everything works and fits together. I really like how you recessed the fan in the radiator, that's very space-efficient!

One last question, if you don't mind: How were you able to make all the cuts and holes you did look so good? I see you drilled them out first, but after that, were you just using elbow-grease and a file, a Dremel, or some other equipment.

Anyone know how hot the south/north bridge gets? I removed my Asus z77 itx to test fit my waterblock for my geeekmax build and while I had it off. I removed all the pink gunk that was under there. I have some spare 1mm thermal pad from my EK waterblock. Would this be enough to replace that pink stuff
