Fingers crossed cause I really like that res mount - don't want to have to remove it.
For the next version of the Enthoo I would recommend that they move that video card indent portion of the res mount lower.. that would give people more flexibility because as it is now you can't run more than 2 high end video cards without liquid cooling them.
Yeah, I guess that and the extra 3 games + performance are the benefits of having a whining R9 290X, a whining replacement 290X, and being forced to buy a GTX 780 Ti because it's your only other option then either a. getting your money back, or b. getting probably another card with whine. LOL.
Oh well, kind of glad I shelled out the extra $200. For the drivers + shadowplay I guess it'll be worth it, that is of course apart from performance alone!
