After reading a few build logs, I found out for myself that I often like to see how all the work has been done.
Sometimes you cant tell from single pictures. So for my build I'll try to go a different way.

First Step: The Case



From the beginning till the end: Timelapse

While assembling more stuff I found two nice Mountings in my PC-Junkdrawer...

Now I got a good way to put my 4 SSDs/HDDs in this case

While waiting for my orders to arrive, I started some detail work...

This is how it started:



And this is the mess I'm dealing with now:


Respect to all who did their builds with a lot of cables... Now I realize how much work that is ...

Ok, I'm tired of sleeving... Time for unpacking the power twins and thinking about the pipe work for the case....

OK. I managed too force two screws in, but I'll make a custom bracket for me once I'm back at work . Or I'll start with cutting that one by 2mm at the top so that the cards are not tilted...


Need to think about it, but once I got the cards in, I got distracted with a bigger problem.

Because I didn't had any 780 in my hand I had no size to compare. But now I see that even for 780ti the Matrix is huge!!!!

The bottom card would be dead soon using air cooling and I ordered my waterblocks already.
But it won't fit!!!
The air cooler will touch the window, but the watercooler has a terminal that adds up the size....




Hopefully I will see a solution in my dreams...

Good night...
