Got all the cutting lines marked out.

The motherboard will actually be mounted a few dozen mill higher, this just shows that it fits.

We'll have room for fairly long graphics cards.

More coming soon.

whats the eventual plan for this case? i love the 90 degree shift, but im not quite sure how youre doing it with this case with no cover on top to cover the mobo IO at the top. anyway im keeping an eye on it because i love these jonsbo cases.

In the end the power supply will be moved to the front, the rear panel will become vents and I'll add room for some fans in the front. Chances are the front fans will have to be thin thanks to the PSU being in the way.
I have a solution in mind for the I/O, but I'll need to see how everything pand out before I can put it into place.

Right now work's been halted as I thought I had more motherboard standoffs than I actually do, and I'll need to pick up more this afternoon before we can get the motherboard worked out.

Sometimes the only way to make people aware of a fire is to set the whole town ablaze.

Here's a poorly lit hint of things to come.

Looking to build my parents a PC out of some old parts, but I'll need to get them a new case.
As they'll need/want a optical drive (and I have a spare one available). I think I'm going to get a Cooler Master 130 Elite. Given it's pretty boss price.

It's also going to be in an enclosed space in a cupboard, so although a G540 isn't going to kick out much heat, I'm going to put my old H60 in there rather than a stock cooler to keep things a little cooler (and because I have no use for it).

Anyway, the question I have is what will be the best fan configuration? It has 1 120mm fan in the front, one 80mm on the side and then the PSU.
I'm thinking maybe to have the PSU as the only exhaust (it can be switched the otherway and pull the air from outside the case). Any ideas?

Isolate the PSU's airflow, so have the PSU intake facing up (It's vented). Facing it down would end up having it take in warm air from the H60 and raise the temperature of the PSU so the fan will be turned on (assuming it runs hybrid mode).

 

As for airflow, just do a push-pull with the H60 at the front of the case, nothing more. Using the small 80mm fan wouldn't do much and just add unnecessary noise. The positive pressure/flow setup will keep the computer less dusty for a bit longer. Don't worry about the "increased temps" thing people say that comes with positive pressure setups. It makes basically no difference. I would remove the grommet to the right of the PSU so the air trying to leave the case meets less restriction.

 

Edit: CoolerMaster has a perfect photo. The setup on the top right is what I'm trying to describe.

The PSU is some really cheap CIT thing I had been using in an old HTPC. I doubt it has a variable fan speed. I was thinking about facing it down to help airflow over the motherboard, or would that not be that big of an issue?
Does the 130 have a fan filter on the front at all?

If it were facing down it would take in hot air from the H60 and run warmer which I'd prefer not to happen.

 

If it doesn't have variable fan speed it would be quieter facing it down but its up to you.

It would depend on the air flow of the case. Cooler Master Elite 110 and 130 are very similar to Silverstone's SG05 as long as a front fan is used in conjunction with the PSU fan sucking air in from the bottom and out to the rear of the PSU it would be akin to creating positive air pressure.
