I did end up getting another Corsair 450D case
Missed an opportunity last night to get a evga 850 P2 for 119.99 darn it I though I had until today to get it
Oh well I'm not in a hurry

The cases seemed to be disappearing = Newegg and Corsair = out of stock
Had 4 at Micro Center locally and got a Amazon price match for 119.99+Tax though :/

Nice case for that rig and yeah your board is DTX so your good as its ATX compatible for standoffs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DTX_(form_factor) Also for future reference your board is the Dig43l/agreyhound and your pci-e x16 slot is 2.0.

Thanks so the you think the evga 980 hybrid will have no issues with the pci-e on the Acer board
Would be really nice to use it it's a nice cool running gpu

I haven't really confirmed the mounting holes yet on the case compared to the board

Yea I looked and looked for another case and the 450D is perfect for future upgrades if the Acer board dies

I also intend on adding a Corsair liquid cpu cooler too
Probably a 120mm version possibly a 240mm H105 gtx but definitely a 120mm I believe H80i ?

If the gpu supports pci-2.0 backwards compatibility your good and I imagine it would, i'v only ever had one card that had an issue with this when 2.1 came out and it was a 8800GT. You will run into issues with AIO compatibility because your socket appears to be LGA 775 and the H80i supports: AMD: AM2, AM3, FM1, FM2, Intel LGA: 1150, 1155, 1156, 1366, 2011, 2011-3. What cpu is in the board atm?

Yeah that's LGA 775 so you need to look for some older AIO designs if you go that route, you could also email the companies and ask like say corsair if they will send you a 775 bracket if they have one that they just don't supply anymore in box.

Yeah welcome to OEM lol, did it even have a stock heatsink for the cpu or used some kinda shroud design?

Vented aluminum block with 1 fan on it
This is a very small case I suppose any cpu cooler will be better than this thing
I was hoping to use the 2 fan ports for 1 intake and 1 exhaust fan
Not sure if anyone makes them but this thing does have a lot of usb2 ports on the board
Possibly a usb2 fan bridge ?
