Drill out rivets, move centre divider, re-rivet, make new back panel out of acrylic, light panels with black vinyl covered acrylic, Dremel an opening in the metal chassis here and there. Etc etc. after that, it all fitts. Trust Me!
Oh yeah, PCI-e extenders, very important them...
Cooling is 4 Noctua NH-C14's with some modding of the heat pipes and CPU blocks. 2 to cool the 8 core Haswell-e via modded CPU block and two split between the 3 GTX 880's. Ie. 4 heat pipes of the combined 12 going to each GPU after I've modded the vapour chamber Heatsinks. Means the stock GPU blower fans can be undervolted, run silent and basically just cool the GPU VRMs and Memory.
Media and SteamOS type game streaming server turns all our XBMC devices around the house into powerful gaming machine clients too. Oculus Rift will be hooked up locally though. Between my current i5 machine, new i7 machine and an 8 core Haswell-e in this I'll also have a nice 28 thread personal network render farm thing go'in on too.
