I'm still a bit concerned over my GPU Temps. Would like to make sure.

I got this new case and I really like it.

In my old case my GTX 770 went as high as 64*C when running Heaven 4.0 at the highest setting at 1080p. In my new case my GPU hits 85*C at the highest settings. I've been told that as long as it doesn't go over 100 then I'll be fine. The side panel gets pretty warm to the touch which is why I'm concerned. What do you guys think?

Well, your first problem is that you bought a toaster for a case.

Its safe at stock settings. Chances are you won't be able to overclock much at all though. Its hotter than I would like and your fan is going to be maxed out quite a bit in demanding games.

So yeah, safe but not ideal.

It's not ideal but it's safe. My suggestion though, put it back in the old case. That BitFenix one is pretty turrible.

Aside from not having side vents which is the reason why the card gets this hot I rather like the case.

I never overclock my cards. Never needed to.

If you are handy with some tools you can modify the left side panel for more air flow

whats with the sudden interest in m-itx builds lately? Is there some advantage?

Save space compared to mid and full tower cases, another build to do, and so on.
