Hi everyone! I recently got my M1.0 case and I ran into an issue with the PCIe Bracket. no matter what I've done it doesn't want to line up with the graphics cards :-(

anyone had luck with it? any tips are helpful! i'll post a few pics of my rig soon.

I had this problem too on my Extended 2.5. I emailed Parvum who initially said "You need to wiggle it a bit" - I then went back to them saying it was far beyond the case of wiggling it, and I didn't want to damage my £1150 GFX (Titan X) over a £200 odd case!

Sean at Parvum then emailed me a video and said the following:

Had a few customers with the problem but all seemed to get resolved. I have a video of us installing using the same bracket which may make things easier. I have attached that for you.

The reason is right now we have no system to make it 100% in place, its 3mm out but that's no issue as you have more than enough flex in the acrylic to put it into place. We are working on new system but for the last 2000 cases its been this system. The reason is we have to sandwich it between 2 x 5mm layers of acrylic vs your traditional case that can just fold the 2mm metal sheet at the exact point.

Let me know if still no joy, but it should install just fine.



showing how they do it - it still didn't work so I dismantled the S2.5 and now it lives in a cupboard.

Maybe the video will help you, I don't have it on this PC but might have it at home, but I would ask Parvum to email it to you, as I couldn't see on youtube.

Good luck!

@Mads1 - What program do you use to make those renders?

Those were done on sketchup , keyshot and V-Ray 3.0

I always put the screws in the alu PCI bracket from the inside so the threads are sticking outwards. Then drop the card into the slot and over the screws at the same time. It's much easier than trying to hold the card and the case and align a screw all at the same time. Then either remove one screw and put it in from the conventional side or use M3 nuts to secure the cards.

All of the current mATX/ATX cases use the same proven dimensions for this part and it's always worked well for me and held even some massive waterblocked cards nice and true. I first installed the screws from the reverse side when trying to install 3 terminal blocked graphics cards simultaneously and stuck with it since then.

That being said we are always looking for cleaner, simpler and more universal ways to translate the PCI geometry derived from pressed cases into systems that work well with sheet materials. The system first used on the X1.0 simplified things a lot however only really worked for ITX or single card builds with a known slot location. I've made some drastic revisions to that system which will potentially allow it to work for mATX, ATX and not be limited to dual slot cards. The first implementation was really slick and i'm hoping to make some minor tweaks and try it on bigger form factors soon smile.gif

helped if i actually loaded up Parvums first round of Renders... lol

dark areas are the Clear Frosted parts- meant to be for Gigabytes new Silver board which has writing on the back, and also any other Gigabyte/aorus boards in future. hence the see at any angle approach





wanted peoples views, at first I thought Frame the back panel like the side but thinking now having it all clear and no frame like the back would look nicer and give a frameless look biggrin.gif

also floating the idea of a hinge design in my head



in theory shouldnt be to hard to do either by myself or otherwise, would involve moving the cubes back a bit in the back section but keeping the front ones where they are so panel could be screwed and panels "locked in". havent seen a hinge design done on a Parvum case, since mines 60% transparent may work, plus also easier then removing 4 screws all the time.

peoples thoughts?
