What do you thing about Morex 557?

It's enough in order to fit a i3 with Noctua nh-l9i on a thin-itx motherboard?

Looking at that photo, the I/O backplate seems to fit the regular size, so no need to get a thin-ITX board. However, the side fan mounts are for 40mm fans, so the 37mm tall NH-L9i/a may not fit.

Yeah I think you're right that the NH-L9 will fit ok, as the whole case is 62mm thick, so that allows a bit extra for the motherboard and motherboard standoffs. :)

the nh-l9i fits in an m350, which is basically the exact same height as the morex. now will it fit with a hdd too? thats the question..

I think yes. The new Plextor m6 it's high only 5mm.
But to be safe i will get a thin-itx mobo with mSata support, so I will take the top free for more air flow
