CM Hyper T4 won't fit. WAYYY too tall of a cooler, you do realize the PSU is directly above the CPU socket on the ITX board right? You have no more than 80mm of height for a cooler, probably more like 70mm.

Also, the Corsair 8GB memory will probably be too tall as well. You want low profile memory chips. Trust me, you really need low profile everything in this case.

I'd also remove the drive bay, its easy and it takes up half the case volume inside.

I've got 2 AIO coolers for the GPU and CPU and the rads vented to the side.

Check out the pics:

I highly recommend the cooler however, I love the look of it and size. Totally worth it. I think I got mine for like $30...lol
