Thanks for the sub mate, and yeah it sucks when you have to figure out where the end product is. I'll add a Table of Contents as well, so that it's easier to navigate the build log. =) Will get to modding soon, need to do some final measurements which you can check out:


An mATX tray and and backplate will fit horizontally with ~3mm on both sides.

Power supply - You can fit an AX860i with 2cm to spare

Both the HDD and the SSD can actually be mounted with the power supply, since there is loads of space - http://i.imgur.com/hPIMFKw.jpg I can fit an ssd and an HDD next to the PSU (that's a shorter, old FSP350 but it will fit with the 860i).

Once you install a 200x200x25mm fan and a 36mm thick Phobya Xtreme 200 radiator you get 279mm space for your graphics card - The GTX680 which I plan to use is 25.4 (10'') in length so that leaves 224mm space to run whatever wires you need and so on.

Doing the back plate for the case will be a challenge but it can be done. I'll most likely use the current tray as support for the new one, but I will also add some blanking plates (with ventilation holes for the PSU/HDD/SSD).

The horizontal project is actually doable =D

Nope Mate, it will fit, but less than 1mm each side, probably closer to 0.5mm.


At least true for my Rampage Gene IV and the Prodigy.

Good work so far though, looking forward to this.

Yeah I redid my measurements, space is less than a mm xD It's really going to be a tight fit but it is doable smile.gif Thanks for the input mate smile.gif

Ah, no worries, just thought I'd give you a heads-up before you gone through the trouble to make something and it doesn't fit....

Interesting mod though, good ideas here, and good luck with this, I will keep an eye on it!

Will link you to my MATX Prodigy mod when I start on the weekend - I have 99.9% of the goodies, just awaiting the 2nd 680 Lightning waterblock from Germany smile.gif

Take care, have a good one!

Beano
