Nice to see so many more players in the mITX world.
Its a really fun form factor. Good Case for sure, not my style but still nice.

Am I missing something here? Is there any airflow to the first half of the GPU's cooler?

There is a gap between it and the PSU, insofar as I can tell.
With Reference coolers I'm sure it will be okay. Anything else, not sure if there would be issues or not, but I am not 100% certain I'd want to run one full tilt in that.

I LOVE the idea of a full custom water cooled build in this case.

I may even do just that if someone buys my GPU...

Been using this case now for over a year and well happy with it. I wanted something small but simple looking. I ordered a sheet of that fan filter plastic corsair etc. use and cut it to size for the top. Perfect DIY fan filter!
