The plate will mostly just be sitting there. The holes are drilled out so the original motherboard tray is all intact and will be using the original standoffs to mount into. The 1/4" is a little to thick, but all I need to do is drill a hole for a mounting plate and that;s about it thumb.gif

This is interesting...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186054

Don't think I've seen anything like that before. That came up under my search for 6670's. I've seen water blocks for GPU's before, but not stand alone air coolers.

Cool, thanks man. I just ordered a mini-itx board though so I doubt I'll use your idea, but if I had went with a m-atx board, then I was thinking of simply making my own acrylic power box, and extending it all the way across to mount the hard drives and other stuff... just have it as one long box so that i could mount the m-atx board better.. don't need that idea now though. I guess I could still make an acrylic box for any larger hard drives or whatever else I decide to put in there.

If you want a motherboard panel let me know! I got my template mostly finished so making them is very simple. I can also do my "smoke" process easily. I am not very good with curves but am getting better as I keep practicing. If youre interested just PM me. Prodigy is a great template to start from. Good luck on your build it should look great!

Cool, huh? It's not mind-blowingly awesome, but if you're getting the GPU on the chip for 'free', it can't hurt to boost it with a relatively low-cost graphics card add-on surely?

If it works, result. If it's unbearable, I'll just have to upgrade further down the line smile.gif

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. If I do build a box for the hard drives then I'll just have to do something custom. Plus, I figure I can just paint the box myself or just use headlight tint for cars as well.

Yeah, I wonder how much of a difference there is between mating the two of those, and running say, a higher graphics card though.

In terms of grpahical power you mean? I'm not sure, but the game frame rates they reported in that Hexus article weren't too shabby and the synthetic benchmarks were actually a cut above an equivalent i3.

I'm gonna take the plunge and put the results on Facetube, lol biggrin.gif

Yeah, i did see that the frame rate jumped up a little bit, when compared to a couple different setups, however the comparison did not show how that setup would compare to something like GTX600's, or higher HD7000's.

is there any danger of using motehrboard stands offs to give yourself extra space for the PSU and the PSU bracket?

I have my pc in my room, its carpeted, finger touched the back plate of the PSU and a spark happened, not sure if its due to the carpet, or because the power suppy is not grounded? not sure, the pc was on at the time, and grounded to a surge bar
