thanks to W360 and Necere for probably the highlight of my year - the little intricacies of building in this case has been the most fun ive had in a long time. quite seriously, the more i looked the more options to put different parts in different places, and its all been just so well thought out.
pull up your socks pc case building industry, because this case is outstanding, and nothing ive ever built in matches the ingenuity or attention to detail the M1 v2 has.
4x Noiseblocker eLoop 120mm PWM fans
i5 4670k @ 4.2ghz
H80i 120mm AIO
XFX R9 290 DD (mild OC)
2x 250GB Samsung EVO SSD's
WD Black 750GB 2.5" HDD
That's a really well thought out case, and your cable management isn't bad either!

This is what I'm planning as well. Maybe even a 300-450w SFX-L to replace my ST45SF-G. I'm currently only using just over 200watts. If the ST30SF has 2x 6pin connectors, I would've gotten it already.
