I'm just sitting in front of the parts which are supposed to go in this gorgeous case:
ASRock I-Z68 Z68M-ITX/HT
Intel Core i3 2100 2x 3.10GHz
Silverstone SST-NT01-E Fanless
2000GB Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS
350W Enermax Eco80+ 8
64GB A-Data S599 AS599S-64GM-C 2.5" (
1024MB Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate Passive (there are some gaming needs)
I know I was taking a risk with the Silverstone SST-NT01-E, it almost fitted in there but no matter in which direction it is oriented, it collides with the PSU. I thought I had a chance since the Enermax is only 14 cm deep but no luck.
The issues I'm running into are mainly due to the dedicated GPU since I can't seem to find a suitable heat sink that...
a) ...is less that 9.5 cm in height (this is about distance between CPU and PSU, it's hard to measure)
b) ...doesn't block the GPU slot (this excludes all 11cm+ width heatsinks such as Big Shuriken)
c) ... doesn't collide with RAM
I've attached a pic of the board with the boxed cooler (6cm height, 9.5 width) to give you an idea about the dimensions.
Scythe Samurai ZZ (height 9.5 cm) may just fit but the fan will directly sit on top of the PSU fan competing for air... good idea?
Any thoughts are welcome!
