    Couldn't you move the PSU into where the CD rom, floppy, HDD go leaving more room for extra fans above (where the PSU was ) the CPU!!!?

    Thanks.

    Heat is still a big issue. I bought the case from a shop (no need for internet ordering and waiting). The boss said that this case is rated for P4, and they have never assembled XP in it, due to the heat.

    I'm kinda looking at this...

    I tot about water cooling.

    I need to forego the CDROM, place the HDD on the PCI slots and remove the whole drive cage.

    But I can't find a pump that small. I only have 80mm internal height. :)

    You said about the "1 Low Profile Slot & 1 Standard Slot add-on cards", does this mean that Im gonna have to get an AGP riser card to use an AGP card?

    There's no standard slot for this case. All of them are half-height.

    To use a AGP Riser, you will have to chop up the rear panels.


    Thanks, Plasma. This must have gotten attention from the other thread. :p

    Watercooling in a Mini-ITX case
    *Not that you've actually said it but what else would one buy a Maze2 for*

    A Black Ice Micro would probably work for you, it is 80mm.
    And probably a sub-200gph pump as the rad only has 3/8"

    Chopping up the rear panels isn't too hard is it? :worried:

    I want to put an ATI All-In-Wonder Pro in mine, which is a full height AGP card.
