Got PSU and as usual, another problem comes up, it fits but its pushing the bottom GPU up a little hard...

I am now thinking to get a different PSU bracket that is shorter than the one provided by bitfenix.

So far this is what I have in mind:

So the mount for the PSU That Bitfenix offers was enough, I didn't realize a cable under it was making it a bit taller, still after removing the cable I had to carefully squeeze the video card in.

Also, cable management omg... Cable management will kick you in your kidney, it took me around 2 hours to organize my cables and this is the best I could do.



After this, I wanted to give the computer a 1st try before I start working in the most difficult part (fitting the hard drives)

Here it is on my testing station smile.gif



As soon as I fit the hard drives I will post how it happened.

Alright! So I am back! Sadly the 230mn fan did not make any significant changes in the temperature of the GPUs which that was what I was concerned about. Instead I am using the space to install my 2x 2TB hard drives and a 120mm exhaust fan. So how did I fit 2 HDDs in there along with a 120mm fan? Here it goes:

I got ne these cool looking brackets from ebay along with a solid state drive.

The final product looks like this, I don't think I could have done better with such a little space.

As of now what is left to do in this project is:

- Make a window on the side panel.
- Install the Intel 180GB ssd for the OS and an additional 320GB western digital hdd @ 7200rpm dedicated to paging files only.
- Improve cable management.

I will keep you guys posted.

Alright I just drew some lines on the right panel (left panel) just to make sure I will cut the window hole right in the middle.
