I guess its doable. Maybe the CM rep can enlighten on this a bit more.

 

What I see is one minor thing, that is that if that last GPU goes into where an 8th slot would be that either the mobo tray needs to be modified to accept the lower "tab" of that PCI slot or a modification of the GPU last PCI blade so it doesn't hit the non slotted area in that non-existant 8th PCI expansion slot.

You don't need to "accept" the lower tab (ie, screw it on). Wtih a single screw its plenty sturdy especially in "horizon layout". I've done this with cases that only had 7 slots (see my other post).

Seems like ppl get too hung up on the slots rather then the space below the last slot (which is where my concern is). I'll just wait for a CM rep's response.

Nice work on both... Proof you can have a good looking woman and a damn sexy case.

That's what I was saying.

My concerns would be finding enough space for radiators with that much input heat going on. If you follow the rule of 120mm worth of radiator per heat source you could put one 12 on the back exhaust to offset the cpu heat, squeeze in a 280 up front for two of the cards, but you'd then need to modify the bottom half of the case to hold another 240/280 radiator, a reservoir, a pump, and still squeeze in some fans and a power supply.

This case is a great case for 2-3 cards I think, but 4 is absolutely pushing it considering it's designed foremost as an air cooled case with not a lot of space for radiator mounting.

I'm plan to make an external rad box to hold my three Monsta 480mm rads biggrin.gif

Ahh, In that case the fittings on the "cpu" side of the rear of the case should provide enough room to route your lines out cleanly from the case to the radiators.

Yup, i saw that from the initial reviews it has the bulkhead option for pass-through. Thinking of adding a couple of acetal drain ports w/ some Koolance qdc. Haven't purchased this yet but its this or the Azza Genesis. Gotta sell my old case first biggrin.gif

Yea I'm currently using the smallest for my 120mm rad fan wiring since one of my push pull fans is mounted outside the back of the case to give more airflow ofver the northbridge heat sinks. A couple of QD's in those ports would work great and the case bottom has little slots designed to bring in airflow that would easily allow a drain out the bottom of the case.
