My desk is setup so the case can go on the left of me against the wall, so normally cases have the window on the wrong side for my liking. Thanks.

There are no holes on the top edge to mount the feet that way. If it didn't bother you though, you could probably drill your own. I don't have my case in front of me though to look at but I think the feet area inside might be reinforced. Maybe someone can check theirs.



In a word, . . . . .

No



At least not without a LOT of structural rework . . . .

The "bottom" of the case has large heavy gage steel reinforcing brackets that extend from where the feet attach, to part ways up the sides and front, so that the thin sheet metal of the actual case itself doesn't actually have to manage the stresses of the weight of everything cantilevering from it.

If you were to flip the case over and mount the feet on what's normally the top of the case, you have only the tiniest corner brackets with very small screws securing them.

To make it even more challenging . . . . keep in mind that the heaviest single item, the PSU, is now at the top where it has the greatest mechanical advantage trying to bend the case where it attaches to the feet.

If you had a metal fab shop make you some corner braces similar to the ones on the "bottom" to fit the top, . . . .

Or perhaps you could swap the top and bottom brackets which would need a lot of new holes drilled, and old holes welded up, . . . . though you'd really want to keep the strength of the lower braces at the top with the PSU now at the top, so this really isn't a viable option for that reason.


So pretty much if you have a metal shop fab you up some new corner reinforcing brackets . . .

You could then have a reverse ATX P5 that wouldn't buckle over or fall on its face from its own weight.

Anyone using the p5 with aircooling ?
I'm planing to buy one but I'm not sure this is a good idea to use it without WC (I own a D14).

Got 2 questions:

1. I know not many people use optical drive anymore. But would still love to have one. Has anyone tried mounting on an optical drive onto this case? If yes, where do you suggest?

2. Is there a difference between mounting your radiator with the pipe holes upwards and downwards?

I don't own the case but have followed this thread from the start and will offer my opinion anyway. For the optical drive the best thing is to just get a USB drive and velcro it to the back of the case, easiest thing to do and it's out of the way. For the radiator there will be no performance difference, its mostly about aesthetics, but ports up will be easier to bleed and ports down will be easier to drain, so take your pick.

This case is not really built for air cooling. Especially the way the exhaust brackets are designed. You can, however, get away with an AIO cooler.

you can mount it at the top middle of the chassis so you have space for the disc tray to come out. You might want to paint the box though as it won't really look appealing. As for the radiator it would be easier to fill if the homes were up instead of down.

Alright so this might be a silly question, I am considering going with x2 GTX1070's over a GTX1080 for two reasons. 1. I cant find a GTX1080 and I am tired of waiting as this is the last part of my build... 2. I dont have 4k or even 1440 and I don't care about it either to be honest gaming in 1080p is just fine for me, I run x3 27" Samsung curves in Ultra HD and personally love it. So I don't think a 1080 is worth it to me especially since I don't plan on upgrading my screens any time soon nor do I really care about it in general.

With that said, my question is: In a an SLI loop for water cooling how can I configure the loop, I am wanting to run the first card in slot 1 and the 2nd card in slot 5. So I know can just use PETG tube with some compression fittings, but do I have to go in the "Left top card, and come out the right bottom card"? or can I put a T in between the 1st & 2nd card on the right side. See drawing:

Are all of these possible?




Thank you!

Well I'm the latest victim of the doa pci link cable. Got my build all finished and found that the graphics card does not display a image when connected through pci X press riser cable. I would have to turn my pc on and off a few times and then I could get Windows to pop up, but videos and sound were stuttering and the image was pixilated and unviewable. I went to Fry's and bought 2 new thermaltake riser cables and hopefully at least one of them works, have not tried it yet. I need to make it work because my tubing is bent taking in account for the horizontal card. I was really bummed out at 1:30 this morning when I found this issue. Called thermaltake and they are starting a ticket to get a replacement cable and send in the old one. I though they had the issue figured out by now since this has happened lots of other times and the case has been out for a while. Using 1151 socket 6700k, pci 3.0 x16, and msi gtx 1080 gaming X, on Windows 10 64 pro.

Props to wizardonthejob for the pic; there are two basic ways to connect sli cards: series or parallel. I prefer parallel because there is less restriction and the #2 card isn't always getting the hotter coolant.

I was wondering if those at Fry's were the same ones that shipped with the P5's. Let us know if they work, I'm considering getting one for a vertical GPU mod in my new build.
