I like the Sapphires too, and they've done ITX sized cards in the past, but their normal cards are long and any ITX release of the 480 will be a long way off. I've noticed Gigabyte tend to do shorter cards then others, their 380's were around 220mm. They may be our best bet for a shorter standard size AIB RX 480.

IMO just wait for ITX version or get the nano.

shorter cards are that much easier to work with, especially plugging in those modular PSU cables and routing them without extra GPU length in the way

I agree but around the 22cm or smaller mark it's already on the small side & would be OK. That said I've been looking for the Sapphire R9 380 4G ITX OC version as I think this would play everything I wanted it to, but they're either not making them or they're seriously unpopular as I can only find the 2GB variant.

All my parts just arrived at work! Looking forward to the build tonight smile.gif

its the difference of having the card overhanging above your PSU or not, anything longer then 17cm will overhang and obstruct plugging cables to it

granted you can always work harder and remove the front panel etc

For those who used an SFX power supply, did you need to supply your own ATX to SFX adapter? I thought I read it came with one, but I've got the case + my SFX power supply but can't see a way to mount it without some sort of adapter. Help!
post #336 of 780
Well I have had to order the SFX to ATX adapter online so my build is going to stall. It doesn't look like much but it took me a really (really) long time just to do this much.

I spent an epically long amount of time hiding the CPU fan & case fan cables, as well as the audio cable & motherboard cable, and have a good idea of where to tuck the rest away when I can eventually mount the PSU.

Why do they make the front USB3 cables so thick & bulky?! I found the whole build quite therapeutic though it's quite a fun hobby, albeit expensive smile.gif I take my hat off to people putting radiators & pipes in their's, it really is a tiny case.

post #337 of 780
well usb3 has more cables in it then usb2

i guess in the meantime you can start modding it.

i cut the psu bracket so the cable can go in easier, cut the mobo tray for cable routing, cut hole up top for gpu, removed fan grill for wire grill etc etc

i had a full waterloop in mine, fitting it was the easy part because of how easy the case comes apart. getting water to flow was the tricky bit

I will say that about the case, because every single panel can be completely removed individually it does make putting it together a LOT easier

Still waiting on my ATX - SFX adapter frown.gif Could be a while. In the meantime I just wanted to put this on the thread in case it wasn't mentioned - the logo is not removable. The first thing I did before doing anything else was go to the logo at the front to remove it - but it's not a sticker and cannot be removed.

It's no big deal it still looks great, but would look better if it came off smile.gif
