HuwSharpe, did you shorten your 20 pin mobo power connector? Because that looks very well fitted heheh. Great job on that cable management.

No, i wish it was that short. It is actually curled up down the side of the power supply between the it and the graphics card. It is not ideal as it is applying a bit of pressure on the graphics card, but it will suffice for now.

Will the h80i fit in here in push/pull? Also can you mount a larger fan in the spot where the factory installed 80mm fan is placed? (120 or 140).

Thanks.

In the 130 case, I have the H80i with 2 120mm Cougar fans in push/pull. The tab that sticks out from the bottom of the drive bay for mounting a SSD will get in the way if you try to install the radiator with the fan already attached, so I suggest you attach the inside fan after the radiator is mounted to the front fan.

Below is a picture showing the tab and how the fan was mounted just fine. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

If you are referring to the Elite 130 then you will not have a problem installing a H80i cooler, though i am somewhat confused by the mention of using a larger fan than the "factory installed 80mm", as the Elite 110, 120 and 130 all have 120mm?

Thanks for sharing that, i have the H80 and had no trouble installing it with fans mounted on both sides, i believe it as not so hard if you install it from the right instead of the left side, if you get what i mean.


To all readers: If you own one of the M-ITX Elite range please let us know what coolers you are using with which Elite case, so i can update the club info, and join the owners club by simply posting a photo of your Elite M-ITX case and request "ADD ME" stating the name of your build. Thanks.

Thanks, and i was talking about the pre-installed 80mm fan in the right rear of the elite 130 (as you are looking at the case from front). I was wondering if there were mounting points near that area to install a 120/140 if i removed the 80mm.

Sorry i forgot about that one, i removed it myself as it was too loud for my liking, plus it was of little to no benefit in my case, due to my motherboard. Unfortunately you will unlikely be able to replace it as the proximity of the PSU is what restricts it. However, if you are not using the hard drive rack then there are mounting holes on it which does allow you to connect a 120/140mm fan. Whilst this doesn't blow directly onto the motherboard like the 80mm fan does, it does draw air in from the side, though in my experience also is of little benefit, just one degree under load.

Cool beans, thx for reply. If i do get the case i will use it anyways to get the pressurized effect for dust (i would also order the demciflex filter kit for this case). And in fact now that i think about it, you could use the HDD rack fan as an intake and setup the H80i as an exhaust.

I had the small fan in my 120 and I removed it after a few months. I didn't really notice much of a performance difference other than my computer being a little quieter without that little fan.

I removed that vertical drive mount that I guess you can mount a side fan on. My concern would be the cross flow and whether the H80i with fans in push/pull will stick out enough to get in the way of good air flow.

On my 130, the H80i takes air into the case and the power supply takes air from inside the case over the motherboard and vents it back out. No additional fans moving air.

I would be curious for another set up to help efficiently keep the insides cool without adding extra noise. My 130 is quieter than my 120 right now.

I'm using a Cooler Master Seidon 120m in my Elite 130. It fit perfectly, go figure heheh.

http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-liquid-cooler/seidon-120m/

Anyone have a list of confirmed Air-based coolers that have been confirmed to fit in the 130 and 120?
