Compatibility?
This graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...067296&SID=

inside this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...067296&SID=

also this motherboard inside said case: http://www.microcenter.com/single_produc...id=0367879

Also, what kind of CPU cooler would fit inside this case? Mathieu basically has this case under HTPC, but it features a 580 with a built in cpu cooler which I won't be getting. So would say a hyper 212 fit? or would I have to go with a low profile fan controller?

IDK. Best to stay with a low profile CPU cooler.Unsure about the GPU fitting. What CPU do you have?

It would be a 2500k, but I checked the hyper 212 is like 6-7 mm off according to both product's specifications. Not a real life confirmation though.

RE: Compatibility?
They should all fit together, I'm actually starting to plan a build around the same case possibly.

A Thermalright HR-02 Macho should also fit in there and would be a much better CPU Cooler.

RE: Compatibility?
Well looks like you have some research then! It seems the Noctua cooler fits too, but its quite expensive and it looks like I wouldn't be able to fit in all my hard drives. I have 1 3.5 and 2 2.5 drives. So would it work if I put a 3.5 in the single 3.5 bay, and converted a 5.25 to a 3.5 and converted that to 2 2.5 drive bays?

RE: Compatibility?
Which Noctua cooler? There's quite a few of them.

From a mod that I've seen, you can fit a 2.5" drive under the optical drive. You can also secure a 2.5" to the bottom of the case. But yeah, your conversion idea would work too.

RE: Compatibility?
dh14 I think is the model. The one thats usually pitted against the Silver Arrow for best CPU cooler. But I also saw your link to the lian li fan controller which is basically perfect for my situation, of course thats another 40 bucks Sad
