Debating making a lighter end gaming build in a mini-itx form factor and looking for a case that will work.
i need something fairly portable but that will fit a gtx 970 hybrid since i have one laying around in another build.
those are the only real requirements, room for a second 120mm rad might be nice so i can liquid cool the cpu as well but i know this is hard to find in a small form factor case.

you wouldn't be able to use the optical bay but you could mount one 120mm in the front top and a 120/140mm on the rear.

Thanks!

actually i can do up to a 280mm on top according to the website so that's awesome, im gonna throw my kraken x62 in there :D

Might not have room to fit the GPU rad in the back then.

ah you are correct, maybe a 240 then, might grab the case and measure or find someone who has one.

The main issue you'll run into is with the tubing, as AIOs are generally designed around ATX form factors. With an x62 there'll be a lot of superfluous tubing that may not be pliable enough to cram into the case without something breaking/leaking.
