For anyone looking for a SFF case, the 120mm rad is pretty sick considering there is nothing wrong with sub 70 degree temps (except those who go for ultimate over-clocking). I think a 120mm rad was a way better choice than 240mm.

Heh... what PSU is shoehorned into that 130 elite? Seriously though.... is there a game out there that wouldn't be fine with a killer GPU but with a high end CPU at stock (or low OC) in order to keep CPU temps down in a small form factor?

I think I might be running that beast without the case sides on if I were to take it out to a lan party. :)

I think you'd want to chain it down though

You could just reverse the rad fan's flow. ;)

touche. However that would mean elevated GPU temps.

Excellent review SKY! Such a pleasure filming video cards, so much footage goodness and it fit inside our Elite 130, but more on that in our video review coming tomorrow.

Working on the video review, here's a screen from the vid. Very difficult getting the two in the same shot properly.
