I'm very interested to see this passive build, to get ideas.
You will use the original fans from the case? (Is it one front and one top?)
Please put us some pictures of the settings inside your box.
Why did you choose this case?
With mATX, you could do a smaller one, still with HDD capacity.
No fans here. I am trying to go fully passive. The reasons for this case is, as I stated in the original post is the massive side mesh (which is surprisingly hard to find) and similarly, the top mesh + top bulge to make sure the giant of a cooler fits. I don't care much for space as long as it's not a full tower. I was looking at the Coolermaster HAF Stacker 915F Mini-ITX longingly but I doubt you could fit the Nofan in there -- the whole case is just 248.0 mm wide, the CR-95C is 180mm wide. It *would* be insanely cool, however, if it would fit! You'd need an ITX motherboard with the socket placed somewhat closer to the PCIe socket.
