You can learn most of what you want by downloading the manual... Including what radiators will fit where. Once you know what case in and have a general idea of what can be done with it we will be glad to help.
And sense you are probably too lazy to even look up the link to download from rolleyes.gif

I should have probably looked up the manual in the first place come to think of it rolleyes.gif

Specs say 257mm reservoir bracket installed w/ cover, 277mm reservoir bracket installed w/o cover, 350mm no reservoir bracket, 390mm HDD cages in front position and 515mm no HDD cage..

Vortex review says
Did Phanteks change things or is Vortex mistaken?

my gigabyte cards are 11.5in long. i think their review is mistaken with the total length of GPU space

Same length as mine. I'm hoping I can mod the reservoir bracket.. make the GPU cutout 15-16mm deeper / bracket 15-16mm narrower. from where notch is to bottom of bracket.

Scaling from the manual drawing the bracket appears to be about 88.5mm wide with GPU cutout being 68.5mm wide.. thinking.gif stock cutout is 20mm and we need it to be 35-36mm.. that leave the bracket 52-53mm wide bracket.. cut all the way to bottom of bracket?? Problem will be reinforcing the edge to look good. Maybe trim the folded edge off the whole length and put a new aluminum edge on. thinking.gif

The cover plastic place could than be cut to fit as needed.
Cutting it to a width of 53mm should clear our GPUs'

the blower from dynatron is <45db, id rather go with a passive one then or get another fan

Thanks brother for the link. The thing I can not figure out is how he manage to secure both, the front block and the back block using the same holes...Or was it different holes altogether?

Cheers

i was thinking of cutting the indent on the bracket an inch more on the top and botton and folding the metal back so it wont be an jagged edge, then sand the top and paint it.

the top and bottom red lines are cuts then the arrow is me bending the flap backwards so its not a jagged edge. and the green the crease on the bracket. Image 18.jpg 30k .jpg file

"Only now we aufgestetzt the copper cooler with 4x50mm screws and screwed to the motherboard, and the pad in the three holes then completely pure pressed."

its the only mention about screws.. and on the picture he provided you can se he used screws from the copper block on the back forth to the cpu block

An inch more is 25.4mm... about 3/8" more than needed and leaving bracket 1.68" wide..

What I did was enlarge page 30 of the manual so the bracket was full size, than measured it. wink.gif
I don't have a program that can copy from a .pdf or i would post it.

Another option if not using the reservoir bracket as a mounting bracket would be to cut the center section out of it completely ust leaving the mounting point top and bottom for the cover.. and just modify the plastic cover to fit around GPU. wink.gif

The reason for cutting the bracket all the way to bottom is to allow mounting GPU lower on motheroard For best airflow to GPU. This way the bottom fan/fans can blow cool air directly at the GPU fans.

This should also help with cool air getting to CPU cooler without any heated air from GPU getting mixed in.

I'll probably mod the optical bay door with a vent and use 3x optical bays as an intake flowing air straight back to CPU cooler.

Mount audio card above GPU and all is good. biggrin.gif

i was going to keep the cards close so since im planning on water cooling the entire card. and shouldn't need that much space between them
