The Xigmatek Aquila Windowed is compatible with mATX and mini-ITX motherboards. The motherboard itself is placed in a horizontal position, therefore there should not be any big problems with the installation of large heatsinks. The case features two levels, where the bottom level is reserved for the PSU and SSDs/HDDs which can be mounted without any tools thanks to a tool-less 3.5/2.5-inch system. The second level offers space for the motherboard with a small window for esily installing a backplate. For our system we chose to use the ASUS Maximus V Gene motherboard with graphics cards of various length. After placing the motherboard in its seat we had some wiring issues with longer graphics card, since the part of the graphics card where you need to plug in PCI-Express power connectors was completely covered by the 2.5-inch cage. Thankfully, that same cage is removable so it was not a big issue. As far as the power supply is concerned, we used a standard sized PSU but struggled to get a good cable management since the small area meant for the PSU is too short and without a modular PSU you could have some problems.
