Used 2 sata 4x extension cables - overkill, but was inexpensive and plenty of length for 1 ssd and 3 hdds asin: B0086OGN9E
Case: Cooler Master Elite 130
Pros: -Cables are Perfect for mATX motherboard
-3 Intake fans, 1 Exhaust , 2x on hyper 212
-100mm Intake Fan fits prefect in bottom HDD slot (drilled holes in bottom front for air intake)
-Intake front fan fits between front cover and grill (bottom) with second front fan behind grill (middle)
-Hyper 212 compatible if mounted horizontally with dual 120mm (Push Push cools better than Push Pull)
-Dual USB 3.0

-GTX 750 Ti - no heat issues
Cons: Full size ATX motherboard not recommended, cables are just not long enough.
Optical drive not ideal in top slot (second slot no issues)
Overall Review: If not running SLI setup, go with a good mATX board.
3 Cougar 120mm Fans 1-Exhaust 1-CPU Cooler 1-Intake
1-Thermaltake thin 120mm between panel and case
1-Scythe 100mm HDD cooling fan
Used 4x TX3 fan splitters on system fan bottom 3 pins (GA-78LMT-USB3) to push 4 case fans - no issues.
4 pin splitter for 2x 120mm CPU fans (push push)
G.Skill Ripjaws fit under hyper 212 - no issues
Pros: I use 2 of these with the Philips DVP5982. It works great and blends in with the cabinet and components. The box is sturdy but the cables...see Cons.
Cons: The Power Cable is fine, but the USB cable is very loose. I'm surprised any data gets through. I ended up using different cables for both enclosures. Any problems with this enclosure are probably cable related, not with the box.
Overall Review: GALAXY - GET BETTER CABLES!!!!
