it is called reverse layout
when the last PCIE is filled ( due to quadfire, IE you put a large GPU there ) you have issues with all connections on the ud7 as they are slightly raised which causes them to hit the GPU whether air or water cooled
as to my problem
can you show me how to route this monstrosity
under a GPU that hits the top of and interferes with usb 2.0 connectors ?
or this pic may show the size difference better ( this has a male usb2.0 but i hope you can use your imagination and "remove" from the pic the pins sticking out of the connector ( again usb2.0 )
i do firmly believe whoever thought up the connector for usb 3.0 and who ever signed it in as standard should be taken out, shot, treated medically and shot again due to the immense density of their brain )
in other news i have some excitement happening, will bring up pics tonight !
I see your problem now, did you actually tried to setup quad fire on that motherboard while having USB 3.0 and all the connectors plugged in? the difference between the UD5 and UD7 is the UD7 has an extra PCI-e x16 lane and that can cause some trouble with the connector on the bottom side.
I have it like this, (don't mind the horrible cable management tho)
I have them at the exact same place as you and if you can route the cable though the bottom cable grommet of your case i think there will be no problem at all..
That is one of the main reasons i go with Corsair cases and that is due to the outstanding cable routing options and many grommets to tug away the cables for a nice clean build. The cables have a nice length to it as well so they are never too short or too long. At least, that is my experience with Corsair cases.
I am curious what that excitement happening is
