New ITX layout?

Why don't more cases take this approach to an ITX layout? I guess it's kinda niche, but it houses everything I could ever want in an ITX form factor.

What I'm referring to is a SFX PSU inbetween the GPU and CPU. This allows the most efficient form of CPU cooling, a tower style heatpipe one.

I plan on making a smaller one of an RTX 2080 ITX Variant comes out.

Id assume because CPU socket placement differs between different mobos. Could you measure it so we can compare to other cases to see how stacks up sizewise. I will say that looks really cool.

aren't a lot of the random mobo layouts trademarked / copyrighted? like inverted, etc.


also - i'd guess the psu placement as a fire hazard / airflow issue, if it weren't an open case.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

It will be a closed case. Just wanted to make sure everything fit first. Why would this be an airflow or fire hazard?

Where does the power supply pull cold air from? Above the GPU or below the CPU?

I agree. Have the PSU exhaust the air out. Very efficient. I have a somewhat similar idea in my lian li PC-Q11. Using a Thermalright AXP-200, flip the fan to pull air so it blows into the PSU to exhaust out. Only ~5mm gap between fan and PSU. Full ATX PSU as well. Never ran into heat issues with the PSU.

Was thinking about modding the CD drive tray out of there, but decided to leave it. Small and compact.

The PSU acts as a push-pull combo in his setup.

In theory, cold air coming from the 140mm front intake, and I currently have the CPU fan also intaking cold air, which would hopefully help supplement the PSU with cold air. Wasn't sure if this was the most efficient way of directing airflow or not.

Spot on. I'll take a FLIR image of this of stress testing actually this weekend if I can find time. See if there are any bad hot spots.

I was just curious, as the image shows that both sides of the PSU are covered, either by the GPU backplate or CPU heatsink.
