hi, can you recommend a passive cpu heatsink for this case. i have mATX board with passive graphic card from nvidia. it's a nice case but too noisy which is a great pity.

Welcome to SPCR.

It's best to get an understanding of the heat load, airflow and temps before just recommending a cooler that would fit. What are the CPU, CPU cooler, gfx card, PSU, and fans in your system? What are you seeing for idle and load temps?

I think the height restriction is 110mm for the cooler. Can you confirm this?
