    It's very sleek and compact, but having looked at other images now, it looks like a ventilation nightmare. Yes, it has the 120mm on the back, but where does it draw in fresh air? The PSU takes up the entire front and it exhausts a bit out of the bottom. It would be fun to toy around with, but the lack of incoming fresh air is a bit concerning.

    Looks like it's coming in from the bottom through the PSU.

    I saw that, but not extremely confident with how much that can draw in...that's about the smallest and most compact mini-itx I've seen that still allows a GPU. A lot of heat under load in a very confined area.

    Yeah no front fan...mmm. But I guess if you build one for light gaming might be ok...(i.e more of a media center/surfer).

    Main thing is keeping that cpu cool..

    It looks interesting, but for gaming I'd rather pick Silverstone Raven RVZ01, which is kinda larger, but much slimmer and supports long graphics cards. It should also allow better cooling.

    I'm all about mini-ITX solutions, would be nice to have some testing temps for the case. Also not a fan of the logo, going to sick with the fortress ITX for my next build.

    I believe, or at least what I'm going to try is having the back 120mm as an intake, cooler pulling towards the psu. Most Psu's ( newer ones ) and the one I'm going to use have a 120mm fan at the bottom that would pull air in and exhaust out the back, or in this case the bottom of the case. There is also vent holes on the left side ( back side of the motherboard ) that will help.

    There is some creativity to this case. But if bottom and side panel had mounting for 12cm water cooling, it would be perfect.

    I ended up finishing the build using one of these cases.

    No GPU installed but idle temps are 30c, max 61c.

    I also have a different air cpu cooler coming that may change the airflow/temps.

    I think you could get a 120mm AIO water cooler on the back.

    What is a good motherboard for Haswell ITX?

    It would depend on your requirements. I went with a ASRock B85M-ITX. It had all I needed and was only $60. If you need wifi or some other items you may need a different board. I've had good luck with ASRock, I've used them on 5 different builds and they are all running strong still. The ITX has been running 24/7 for about two weeks without any issues.
