HI guys i have a question..i am building a custom case...The setting is going to be a little weird. the dvd rom, the hard drive and the mobo will be "stacked"one on top of the other....right now my plann is to have
hard drive on the bottom, then dvd rom, and then on top of everything is the mobo....my question is would the mobo suffer any kind of problem by being "stacked" this way...also the psu will be very close to this set up..will not touch the set up but it will be very very close...
thank you

if it dosn't touch and is properly supported it should not be a problem.

You have a tough time getting the heat from the HDD and the optical to rise since the mobo is ontop of them but if you have good front to back airflow you should be more than fine.
