Motherboard and Case Compatibility
--The motherboard BARELY fits, but it does fit and that's what really matters, however this limits either one of two things: One- RAM compatibility, due to the classic fat HDDs, or Two- HDD compatibilty, because the RAM is too high, I'll be limited to 2.5 inch/ 7mm drives, which will cost a premium.--
== I decided to go with that latter over the former because SSDs are getting cheap, especially used ones, and I just need a 240GB SSD and mass storage from a 1TB(+) laptop HDD/SSHD==
CPU Cooler and Miscellaneous Component Interference
--While I don't have the cooler on-hand right now, I have approximated the measurements from scale and compared them to the case dimensions, while accounting for the motherboard placement and RAM height. I can orientate the cooler one of two ways, but either way, the cooler will be contacting some surface, either the RAM or PSU, but my measurements could, and likely are, off.--
== When I get the cooler on-hands I'll mod the cooler to fit the situation, although, I purchased the Rev.2 model, so it might account for high RAM clearances because the cooler has a lack of heat fins near the lower part of the cooler.==
--This case doesn't offer ANY cable management space whatsoever.--
== Okay, for a $14 USD case, what do you expect? The saving grace here though is the semi modular PSU that I got on the cheap on Newegg. The only cables I could route through the other side of the case were the PICe power, and SATA power. And while typing this, upon further reflection, I could just remove the Molex connections because I was able to route the front fan tot he proper header.==
