Making it with hand tools is a pain and it's time consuming. It's too bad I don't have a CNC table, because it would be a totally simple program to write, and it would take about 2 minutes per piece to knock out.

Well.. I guess I lied when I said my rig was done. I bit the bullet and decided to get the new Sapphire HD 7790 OC edition thats being released tomorrow. at a price of $128 CAD it would actually have cost me more to of bough an HD 7770! I recently upgraded to an eyefinity setup and I just cannot squeze anything more out of my AMD a8 + HD 6670 dual graphics setup. I figure if I upgrade to the 7790 I will get enough performance increase to play world of tanks at medium settings for now, and I can upgrade to a crossfire setup later.

The pursuit of the perfect rig never ends... does it?

Ill be getting my HAF XB in two days. I am up to page 30 of of all the posts and so far am glad I have purchased the HAF XB as an upgrade to my Thermaltake Armor A30!

Has anyone had any heat issues (or any issues) using SLI or Crossfire with a mATX board in this case. I currently have a Maximus V Gene MB with a single XFX HD7870 Dual Fan Black Edition..... but like the idea of a second biggrin.gif

I have 2 titans in SLI in this case and have no heat issues at all. I find GPUs with a blower design cooler much better when the GPUs are sandwiched next to each other.

Sorry for rezing this post back from more than a month or so, but I had questions about an alternative to this picture.

I'm already a member of this fine brotherhood, BTW. And thanks to erzu for posting this very image. It's exactly what I needed.

If it's going to be that cramped and I don't want to gut the docks, is there an alternative PSU bracket that could extend further out the back to accommodate an AX1200? Otherwise, I'm considering a Cooler Master of the same wattage but in a smaller profile closer to the Corsair TX850 I have.

Perhaps I need a trip to the hardware store to see if I could attach risers to the current bracket and extend it that way. Anyone have experience with that?

There are no other adapters in production to solve that problem that I have seen. Other than a custom made bracket, it's basically going with a shorter psu. But as I mentioned, this is as far as I have seen.
post #1749 of 10491
a longer bracket for the psu would be fairly easy to make yourself with a metal sheet , one cutout for the exhaust , 4 holes to hold the psu , 4 holes to hold the bracket to the case and then the most difficult , 4 bends ( start with the big one and finish with the 2 small lips that go against the case). take something between 0.5 mm and 1 mm , preferably steel and paint it black , all done , i think it s a less then 3 hours job.

or like you said 2 cm riser would do the trick too but the only problem is the fan psu opening under , i dunno if the side of the case wouldn't be too much in the fan's way

If you want an even easier mod, just use the stock psu bracket with longer screws/ spacers. wink.gif Your psu will be visible from the outside, but it's the cheapest route to go.


Here is an example of the screw/ spacers config I am thinking of:
