So I'm designing a kind of FT02, mini-version. How do other people design the case? I started from the components and where they would be placed inside and I need to work out how to make the case on the outside (and how to fit/hold said parts inside.) Here is the design plan: Per picture: ITX Mobo: Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe Memory: Any 2x8gb CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i + 4 fans. Probably Corsair SP120s Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 660Ti - Zotac AMP! OR ASUS GTX 670 Mini (Technically could accomodate up to 230mm cards in the pic). 2x HDD - Any 1x SSD - Any ATX PSU - Up to 160mm in length in pic (AX850). Might take slightly longer. Options: 3 SATA are being used by above 2xHDD + 1xSSD. Option is to either: Make space for a slim ODD. Use SATA3 with another SDD, use external ODD. Approximate dimensions of component space is: 300mm Length 150mm Width 340mm Height (Add 10-20mm for Air entry clearance) This can be shortened by ~30mm if the GFX card will definitely be shorter at 180. The case should be small, quiet and cool. - Cool using the H100i. - Small as per ITX. Can technically be either upwards as per picture or lying down like an HTPC. - Quiet... Needs to be done in the design. Can definitely use some SP120 Quiet edition fans which would help. Add 3-7mm to each side for noise dampening foam, also at the bottom where the air enters the system, and perhaps at the top. The top is unlikely since that's where all the I/O are. What do you guys think?
