Yes, this is a consideration. Support for fitting an 80 mm slim fan would only work with MSI, and also now ASUS GTX 1050 cards, since they use lower profile heatsink.Have you considered putting venting on the bottom? Being able to replace the stock fans on low profile gpus with 80mm slim fans would be amazing.
The L4 sold for $170 CAD (currently about $128 USD) including free shipping. The L5 would be around that.Hey Lone, what do you think the cost for the case would be roughly in CAD?
This sounds perfect, but aren't the slim 80mm fans 15mm thick, not 10mm thick?I've added mounting points for an 80x10 mm fan over the GPU. The intended usage would be with spacers to offset the fan against the GPU heatsink. The only thing this does is save someone from having to figure out how to mount an 80x10 mm fan onto a GPU heatsink. I won't be including spacers or fasteners for this. It's just there for the person who wants to use it.
Also added are mounting holes for the Meanwell RPS-200-12 at the front of the case. It's not fully supported, but it's only two holes to allow mounting it. Since it would take the place of the case fans at the front, someone would have to use the NH-L12S CPU cooler to get hot air out of the case.
Yeah the 80x15mm fans I have I set to a fairly low RPM to keep the noise in check.
