My System Specs


It looks like the 80mm fan above the CPU area could fit a 120mm. I'd recommend switching that to a 120mm just so that it's quieter and will move more air.

That heatsink is going to be massive in such a tiny case though. Good luck fitting it it...

It'll be quite the nice HTPC though when finished.
