I don't want to take the panel off again but i ran my sata and molex power connectors and stuffed them under the 2 drives in my drive cage. 24pin and 8pin for mobo are zip tied together and i put one of the sticky things to zip them too. i clipped the 1394 connection and threw it in the trash lol. the rest was run through the top hole in the 5.25" bays and then down to the bottom. 2 8pin connectors i didnt put behind the motherboard tray yet i left them out until i got my 6990

Judging from the photos here, the humongous CP-850, which is approx. 1.5" (38mm) taller and .8" (20mm) wider than ATX psu spec, looks like it might actually fit down there in the 500R. I'm still on the fence between this, an Arc Midi, and a 922, as a home for some cheaply acquired parts, a few of which are are on the big side (archon). If I can stuff an unused CP-850 in there, that would be good to know. MemoryExpress has the 500R on sale for $89. Sale expires Monday. Could some kind soul stick a ruler down there and check whether there is 40mm available from the top of a regular sized PSU and their motherboard, and 12-15 mm available on either side of the PSU? Much thanks, in advance. The CP-850 dimensions are L:175mm x W:170mm x H:120mm.

This will be my first post on this forum.

My quick and simple 500R build.

Mind the gimped GPU, had Crossfire 6950 2gb before, but sold them, because I don't have the time to game anymore, so a evga 8800gts 320mb from many years back will do the job for now.

Not that fancy.

Apologize in advance for the bad picture quality since it was taken with a 5 years old Nokia N95.

Enjoy

Before when I still had my 800D + 2x XFX 6950 2gbs (dual fans version):

After I sold my 800D + my 6950s in xfire:

Yes, I saw your 800D picture!

Power led already died?

Not a good news for all 500R owners!
