        I was building an AMD mATX in a mini case as I watched you guys farting around...This was a very good Saturday Morning in Northern Ontario. So that case you built with was actually very nice! Can you do more mITX builds please! I love the SFF...

                                I build something exactly like. Almost exactly like this 5 years ago.

So it may reflect heat back out as well. Instead of absorb it. coghlan's emergency blanket. Maybe you could modify if for your needs.

If you want decent cooling you'll have to get something a little bit bigger, like an NZXT manta, but if you don't want to you can check the DAN Case A4 SFX v4 or the Streacom DA2 (<- this one might fit a 240mm rad).
