[Build Log] Lian Li PC-O6SX - Page 5

post #41 of 71
@BornEvil - when you relocated your PSU to the lower portion of the case. Did you have to drill new mounting holes and passthroughs for the cables? I had a PC-O6SX from when they first came out and don't recall having the option to lower the PSU. I now have a different case, but this is definitely something I can come back to.

Thanks

No, i did not need to drill those holes, they were factory machined. The pass-thorugh for PSU cables was actually meant for the HDD cage, worked out very well for me in the end.

I planned early to have the PSU lowered, but to my surprise, holes were already there. Strange, cos no reviews mentioned this. Would have preferred it 2cm lower to sit level with the GPU (or buy a longer PSU), but the original holes would be showing. Got lazy in the end.

Early models and review examples have PW-PCI-E, which is the 30cm ribbon cable, like mine. Then there is the 38cm version, PW-PC-E38.

30cm is not even long enough to reach the highest 16x slot on the motherboard to the first 2 positions on the rack closest to the tampered glass (unless you go straight down, instead of through the back, I went straight down for my build). I assume you want the sound/wifi hidden behind the 980Ti reference cooler.

I have seen O6S builds with the revised PW-PCIE30-1 'plastic' shielded cable. Might be useful to thread between each other to change the order

It would not be an easy ride fitting 3 PCI-E extensions smile.gif, cable managing 3 ribbon cables would be a nightmare.

Awesome, thank you. I have 3 E38 in my cart at Amazon for that exact purpose.. they'll run behind and under instead of just straight down. I think I know the order in which they have to be hooked up so they all lay on top of one another. I'll figure it out. Thanks again man.

I had mine mounted by way of double sided tape...i had the power cord side facing down though, used a 90 degree PSU cable and let the PSU sit on that, and double side tape to secure it to the case. Only problem is when i take the PSU out, i have to use a hair dryer to loosen up the tape a bit..but it was a one time thing because i didn't have it lined up right.

Yup, there are two holes on the bottom for the bracket, but it's sitting higher than i'd like so i just used double sided tape instead. Or else you could see my PSU power cord

So I placed my order and I grabbed all the components I wanted and then immediately remembered that my motherboard doesn't have 3 x16 slots, it has 2 x16 and 1 x4. I have 3 of the E38-1 cables coming. The riser I bought is an x1 to x16. The card I have plugged into the x4 slot right now is an Asus PCE-AC68 which requires an x1 slot. A bit confusing, right? Well...

It'll go like this:

Motherboard > Startech x1 to x16 Riser > Lian-Li E38-1 > PCE-AC68 card.

X4 > x1 > X16 > x1. I realize with a GPU that probably wouldn't work but since the first 18 pins in all sizes are the same and I'm not using it in high bandwidth application I assume it'll work. Let's hope my assumption pans out.

Thoughts?

Or should I get rid of the x1 to x16 riser and get this one instead to just make it easy on myself? It's 3 times the cost and I can't find another viable alternative to what I came up with and this $73 one...

What motherboard do you have? Some motherboard's x4 (ans X1) slots are open so you can fit longer length cards but runs at slower speeds.

If your board does not have this, then again, I would just cheap out with a x1 ribbon cable off eBay rather than going extension through extension.
