Bought this case and so happy! This thing is tiny and has plenty of space (if you can say that about a mITX case) for all your drives/graphics card/heatsink/etc.
I have a Cooler Master Seidon 120XL closed-loop water cooler, GTX670 video card, 3TB drive, 120GB SSD, 8GB RAM, and an i5 3570k.
I beat my head into a wall trying to get the heatsink to fit in properly but once that was done, everything else is a piece of cake. It's super cool (temp. wise) and super quiet! I became the envy of all my techie friends at my company when I brought this bad boy in to steal company bandwidth and download 500GB of games the day after I had it built.
PuvMan said: This would be perfect for rebuilding my NAS....currently running on an old psuedo server from Dell...Pentium D. I have 3, 2 TB drives in there...running FreeNAS 7. Also use it as my Squeezebox Server.
Could anyone suggest a mobo and processor for this thing - keeping it on the cheap? I imagine I don't need anything crazy powerful at all - a celeron or even atom is probably more than enough.
