I wonder if it has anything to do with the design of the PCI-E slot. The PCI-E slot on the Impact doesn't have a latch on one end to hook to the Video card. Mabey that latch helps provide some support to the PCB of the MB?

Your MB does have a latch that secures itself to a video card.

That is all I can think of.

Meh, I have the MSI Z77E-ITX board, it has a latch, and it still sagged until I supported it... So maybe but maybe not!


Thanks - T

I posted a couple of pics of that build in this thread -

There's some better pics in this review showing the PCI-E slot/latch -

As you can see it doesn't look like the latch does much of anything except make removal of the video card more difficult which is why Asus removed it from the Impact to begin with.

I have the Asus P8Z77 i deluxe with a Titan and the board sags the same. Wondering if the 10 layer PCB of the Z87 Stinger would fare better!
post #1595 of 1735
I'd skip the Stinger.

Hey Caselabs!
Can I fit an APS 240 rad on the top and front in push pull, and an aquaero in one of the bay drives?
Its about 63.5mm thick.

Choosing between the stacking the S3 or S5. DROOLS.

Length: 2 x 120 + 44 = 284 mm
Height: 63.5 = 63.5 mm
Width: 146 mm is the aqua computer rad I was interested in but as Long road trip has said the alpha cool XT 45 dimensions fit well and in his S3 build it fits but I have a feeling the aqua computer rads wont let you fit a fan controller in the top bay slot . I did think of making alloy spacers to raise the top radiator mounting and have no fans on top as Ive ordered a extended S3 top plate I think there 36 mm higher I'm going to wait till mine arrives here before I do any thing My S5 Ive got all the parts except the fittings and tubing oh my Aquaero 6 is coming once it gets off the production line in Germany


http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2793

http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info.php?products_id=2980 with this I was considering cutting a hole in the floor of the S3
But I think Ill just go with the alpha cool XT 45s and spend my money of other things in the build thumb.gif
I just wish Shoggy had posted drawings of of aqua computers 240s with and with out pumps even the 360 drawing
does not show the distance from the lower fan mount to the lower extreme of the radiator even adding and subtracting still doesn't give any one enough information as . The top is OK = 21.5 from the highest fan mount bolt hole to the extreme top of the radiator but the drawing doesn't show the lower fan mount to the lowest extreme of the radiator or from the web site a 360 you add 360+44= 404 which leaves a balance of 59 which maybe the pump module, that's using the drawing as a reference ?blushsmiley.gif I just wish they could have a down load and that it was more informative . When your so far away and there's a fair few euros involved rolleyes.gif

As much as I'd love to say yes, I can't. Not because it wont fit but because I just don't know. There are many radiator manufactures out there and they all have different specs. There is two very important specs, that as far as I know, manufactures don't list. Its 1. The distance from the farthest screw holes to the ends of the rad. 2. The distance from the screw hole to the side of the rad. If one knew this, planning fitments would be much easier.
