this might be fun in my Haf X, but i'd need to be able to mount a soundcard and wireless adapter...and i dont think 3 vertical cards would look that great.
build like this amaze me...not just the time, effort and skill involved, but the imagineering of ideas.
I completely removed the slot dividers from the rear of the case so it's like a big empty square, and also removed the bracket from the GPU that is normally used to mount it. The GPU is attached to the plate with the hex standoffs for the DVI ports. Then the whole assembly is inserted from the rear of the case and pinched in place by a rivet on the mobo tray side and the screw holes on the case door side at the moment (a better attachment method is in the works).
I agree 3 cards would be a bit much. You could most likely pull it off with a pair of cards or get creative and mount the third pointing downward along side the PSU but it would take some work and case hacks.
