Ive got a GTX 680 and i5 3570 in a mITX enclosure, and it sure could use a full loop. Cant put an OC on my gpu and had to keep the chip on stock volts with only a modest 4.2ghz OC on the cpu.

Mediocre mitx case to go with their mediocre mitx z77 board, perfect match.

Do all 1U size PSU have the same length or does the 1U just mean it can fit into a hole of that height and width? The way the PSU sits in that case, it looks like it will be a pain the in ass to service.

I would love to know what types of PSU's can fit there, since there are a lot of Server PSU's that are very very good quality and can be readily had if you know the channels.

Yeah that PSU makes me cringe also. There aren't enough replacements of those sizes readily available, and Ill bet you its loud as sin with a 40mm fan or similar. Not interested Im afraid - Unless they come with a watercooling AND PSU-free version! Without a PSU it would be a decent little case for a pico-psu and a big passive heatsink a la HTPC.
