Use a different routing hole

Yeah on my rig which is using a similar Asrock board I put the cable through that hole to the right in your picture. That cable is fairly flexible but you could always shop around to see if you could find a braided extension cable that would be better?

i think i'll have a look at braided extension cables thanks. i was intending to keep that hole free of cables on purpose to extend the water loop into the other compartment but as my water cooled card doesn't fit after all i think i'll change to an air cooled card and spread my cables to both holes. im sure both these things will help tidy the case up a bit...

Cross-posting from the work log - finished my Air 240 mod:



Simple mod but turned out looking pretty neat. Now what do I build in this case?

If anyone needs stock side grills in perfect condition for your crazy modding projects, chime in.

Just came here not too long ago looking for info on doing my rig, and from what i found, there hasn't been anyone in my (total) situation, however i did end up going through with it and squeezing my new XFX R9 390x into this beautiful baby, ----without modding or bending the case nor my card. i afterwards, i decided to throw in some more fans to get a push pull going on my H100i GTX that wasn't getting that great of airflow to the gpu. so far this is what i have;

Fx 8350 stock clock w/Asrock 970M Pro3
Corsair Vengeance 2x8 DDR3 Ram
Corsair H100i GTX
XFX R9 390x
Samsung 850 Evo 250gb
Seagate 1 Tb something (idk i just ripped it from a pavillion)
8x Fans Either Corsair or Coolermaster

Asus VG248QE
Corsair K70 RGB (brown switches)
Logitech G502 Proteus Core Master race

My plans for this build to be finished;
i7 6700k or i7 5930k -No mobo chosen yet.
another XFX 390x, OR and XFX 290x to crossfire within this little bad boy of a case.

(if it does get too hot within the tight quarters, i plan on switching to the Air 540, however i really don't want it to come to that.)

Why 6700k or 5930k? Have you looked at 4790k?

Just finished building my i7-6700K / 980 Ti system a couple days ago. Seems to run games pretty decent. thumb.gif

Strictly because I work retail and I am counting on a decent price cut in either processor for pretty cheap like $80-$150 before tax (the summer's price cut had a 4790k for $80 and a 5930k for $160)

I'm just trying to go for DDR4 just for future sake

hi guys, I just registered on this forum (and I really apologize for my english, i'm Italian tongue.gif ) and I have a couple of questions:

I have a Sapphire R9 380 that doesn't fit well in the case.. I can close the side panel, but it bends a little (like 4-5 mm) when all the cables are connected to the card.. now, I saw that someone put in this case cards that are even wider than the sapphire, and I wonder how they did it sad-smiley-002.gif maybe the psu connectors are in a different place on the pcb ?

before returning the GPU, I was thinking of changing the psu cables, which is an old CM real power M620, with less stiff ones (I saw the bitfenix sleeved) but I don't know if this can be the solution..what do you think ?

thanks tongue.gif
