[Build Log] Angle Grinded Case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Don't want to buy the GTX 1080 so got a pair of R9 290.

The mobo has 1 slot too many between 2 GPUs, so the case didn't fit.

I made it fit using an angle grinder.

nice one.
Did you do it with all the components still in the case? If so, how'd u deal with all the little fragments of aluminum or whatever the case is made of?
Took me a while to build one of my rigs that i had to do a lot of case modding, had to keep removing everything when i realised I need to cut another 5mm off tongue.gif

I had the mobo and the loop inside because I just wanted to get it done quick. As long as you cut away from the case its fine. I used a notebook to shield my mobo from all the sparks.
