I actually found an old headder that fit with an extra long cablethat I was able to run down below the graphics card & then back against the mobo.. But yea placement in the 07 was mad sux0rzI'd be able to use Front USB ports with this case
I had to remove the header cause of clearance issues with my GFX card in my 07.

Same, yes... and at least for me it's not about the OC as much as it is keeping things silent etc. Easier to do with a bigger selection of larger coolers available.that's the same as the q07 and the q08. Not a big deal with itx since oc is limited

Not so easy everywhere. Can't think of anyone who'd sell the Big Shuriken in Finland anymore. Same thing with the apparently popular (based on these boards) TT AXP-140. In some situations any sort of WC setup isn't viable as well, ruling out the H50. It does seem that my second-favorite store has just gotten a stock of Samuel 17s though, but reports indicate it is not that great performance-wise.Sound is easy. The big shirken fits the size and is quiet. not to mention that chances are from placement of the intake it looks like a h50 style cooler may be an easy fit.
Incidentally that Gainward GTX 460 GS-GLH is the exact model I'm getting soon (actually I already reserved one weeks ago, but only came in stock now) Can't wait, as my current GPU just isn't that great for the newest games@emax. The standard 460 should fit fine, but that little one is sexy, especially id its quiet.
although I Dont use it often, I wont give up my 5.25.. Also being a former owner of a q07, it doesn't need any exhaust.. The PSU is the exhaust, Just turn it so it sucks the air off the CPU area.. I Didn't have any heat issues with my q07 & its MUCH tighter with no other forced air..ditch the 5.25" rack/tray inside and have 120mm fan for exhaust on the top panel.
or LL will probably come up with that panel for $40 in a couple of months after release.
what vidcard did you have on the 07? I guess I'm just scarred form the A05 and the heat that builds up on top.although I Dont use it often, I wont give up my 5.25..

I had an asus 5750. It wasn't enough juice to play modern games which was the whole reason I dont still have that system.. But I Can say that there was no heat issues.. The CPU actually ran cooler with the PSU sucking the heat off of it then it did with no side panel on the case & the PSU sitting behind it.. It kind of violates basic rules of PC cooling, but for whatever reason it worked very well.. I think it was because the interior space was SO limited that the relatively slow fan in the hx520 psu I was using still changed the full air volume of the case in a rapid manner.. Where in a standard ATX or god forbid a full tower ATX you need extra exhaust (or extra forced intake) to change that air out in a timely manner..what vidcard did you have on the 07?

God I miss that quick shipping from when I lived in Vegas (LV native originally). But ywah I am holding out till newegg has it & maybe a couple other places just for a judge on price.The ebay seller posted in the v354 thread, he seems legit enough. I'm just waiting for newegg to carry it, since ground shipping is cheap and only takes a day from Cali to Vegas.
I'll pass at those prices. I got the PC-T7R soon after it came out, and now it seems permanently $30 less than when I bought it.
Likely one of the shorter GTX 260 (they aren't all the same length). Basically anything 230mm or less (including power plugs at the end).So what is the best video card that will fit in this case?
