Inverted corsair 600c?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've seen some reviews that show this build is really good with air flow, so that's why I'm going with it. My concern is that my GPU is large and heavy (a review said 4.5-5 lbs)... Maybe this belongs in the mobo section, but any ideas how the mobo will handle the card being upside down? Will the case mount on the back (idk what it's called, the part that exposes the fans and the video ports) be enough to support it? I don't know if mobos are designed with possibly being mounted upside down in mind.

Like I said..maybe this is more of a mobo question.. Or maybe it's just a question on inverted cases in general.. Thoughts?

(Spoiler is the build I'm planning, feedback on that is also appreciated if you have any) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I went with this i7 because I was able to get it for $277 at Fry's--so it was a really good deal. I don't an OS or anything outside the case (monitors/mouse/keyboard/etc).

Thoughts? Suggestions? Improvements?

the GPU is always hanging down, when your mainboard is vertical oriented.
If you have your IO´s ontop of the case then ist might be better.
It will make no difference if you have an normal or inverted atx layout.
I´m getting M8F,6700k in my 600C with a 360 + 240 rad
