This. I was running a thermaltake toughpower 1200w unit and that sucker was long. I had some good space between both to route cables and tubes. Shouldn't be any problems.

Wow your rig looks awesome. Where's the sound card? On the bottom under the GPUs? I don't see a PCI-E x1 on top.

Also... is it not a problem for there to be a rad on the bottom which warms up air as it enters the case? I've seen comments on other threads about that possibly causing higher temps for people.

Another thought that comes to mind... since modding the top for a 480 removes a couple 5.25" bays, and since I want a fan controller and DVD reader, I guess it's better to go with internal reservoirs like you have? I was planning on doing a bay res but I would low on drive bays at that point.

Ah, good to know then. Yeah looking at more pics I can see my PSU is no longer than others with the same setup. Thanks.

Thanks.

I don't use a soundcard, instead use the video card to bitstream DTS, etc to my receiver. I use a receiver with a 3 channel soundbar with a micro sub for sound.

The bottom rad pulls air out of the case. I replaced the 700D panel with a 800D panel, and then replaced that window with modder mesh. Negative air intake issue resolved.

There's room in my setup for an optical drive, but I hate the way they look on my case. Thus I don't run any opticals... why bother for the 1% you use them for? This is why God made usb optical ext drives, imo. Oh and daemon tools ftw.

Ah makes sense now with the modder mesh. And good point regarding ext drives.

Your ax1200 is the same length as the TT 1.2kw unit I used.
