You're not going to get very far with 114mm of CPU heatsink headroom, and mITX cases only get smaller.

Thats not a problem.




I have an H50 in there now, and its pretty good, would be able to sustain a 4.0 Ghz i750 at about 80C linpack if not for the board.

Ivy 4.5Ghz should not be out of the question.

Umm its all good for my lanbox (SG-07). I put a push-pull Antec kuhler 620 with no problems in that case and have a 2500k OCed to 4.2ghz with max temps at about 55C. I also have a GTX 570 in there, although that does get a little warm at around 78-82C.

nice setup man! Very similar to my lanbox although its in a SG-07 and i have a i5-2500k :) Also you might want to try having the radiator intake cool air into the case and using a more positive pressure airflow, I found it to be more effective.
