What Sicaris said may need to be thought about a bit.
The GPU in that position also generates a pocked of heat uderneath the GPU (Yes i know Hot air raises)
But if most SFF CPU coolers it may suck warm air down to the CPU making the CPU cooling worse by few degrees.
And we all know heat is our SFF worse enemy.
Right, sorry i should have been more clear, I totally get the orientation you have, in fact I'm very glad to see it because its something I would like to try myself. My query is about the horizontal position of the GPU i.e.
which is roughly what your case has, compared to:
which would allow the use of a solid riser such as this one:
Hope that makes more sense. Its something I have been considering, so I'd appreciate your thoughts.
Good reasons! I was thinking I would try to mount an ssd to the side vertically next to the solid riser, still not sure of that is the best use of space though.
I'm using a EPP200. Those cards would probably put out too much heat.I like the case idea, although I'd probably be one to set the case vertically upright rather than horizontal.
I'm guessing you'll be putting a MeanWell 300W PSU in the space beside the motherboard? Would go great with a OC'd CPU and a mini GTX 1070.
Do the nuts have to be retained with tabs? Why not just lock 'em in with a dab of glue? I realize this may not be ideal because it could cause a bit of a mess though if not done properly.
EDIT: I made an image to illustrate what I mean. The blue represents glue. Obviously, we'd have to use some pretty strong stuff.
