The minimal weight increase from P-ATX is actually pretty nice. All things considered, if this case ends up being as good as it sounds, maybe the shipping to Australia will be worth it... getting shafted on shipping is nothing new here at the very least lol.

Thanks! Well it is only due to pandemic, usually regular post ships to aus for 63usd, same as other non-eu and non-america countries.

Hey @riba2233,

I was looking over the pictures provided but I couldn't really see what interests me. Do you still have the test system built by any chance?
I am interested if I can squeeze a pci-e pass through for watercooling with an atx mobo and a 2 slot gpu, but I can't clearly see the back of the case and how all the i/o is aligning.

Cheers!

If your GPU is single slot under a waterblock, you shouldn't have an issue I would think. You can also find single-slot IO Brackets for most recent GPUs.

Hi, I get that you are asking, here is a quick render:




It could fit, but might have to file a bit of the strut between pci slots 3 and 4. Problem with those pass throughs is that they are as wide as the pci bracket, so they require that the case doesn't have any struts between pci slots.

To avoid the GPU backplate, I would swap where the opening is to be farther away from the motherboard.

Thanks, but there is not much I can do with this area, it is already really packed and optimized.
Sorry I wasn't suggesting changing the case, I meant moving the GPU 1 slot towards the motherboard... does that interfere with an ATX board in the N-ATX?
