It will be a tight fit. Just squeeze it in...

it looks to me like it should just about fit, but id really like someone with a similar length card with PCIE on the rear of PCB to give me some feedback before i do anything else as the margin for error is in the millimetres.

I do have other case choices but this one looks to be by far the best bang for buck one.

Great thread everyone, if we can stay on topic, lol.

Pretty much a stock CM690 case, in SLI setup w/ nVidia 780i 3-Way SLI, (2) 9800GT's, plus a couple of Noctua P12's, a Thermaltake Blue LED and a 80mm SilenX iXterema Pro for the back of the CPU.

I've added a custom fan filter and fresh air CPU duct for the stock CPU cooler fan you can see in the last pic, it dropped my CPU temp by -6* Celsius!







Let me know what you guys think!

Any thoughts?
Paint over the logos.

It's normal for it to be a tight fit. But if you want to make it looser, then try to make sure to reduce the amount of cables that are on top of each other. However, it's going to be tight no matter what. I have to work much harder to get the right-side panel on than the left because of all those cables. It's just the way it is.

This guy has to be added to the Cable Management section!

Amazing job, Good alternative for those who can't fit all cables through the back.

Time to update my rig, the old pics are here:
http://www.overclock.net/6561116-post5937.html
lol

so far I added a 9800GT and got the following:
Corsair 400W PSU CMPSU-400CX
550BE HDZ550WFGIBOX
Asus M4A77D mobo
OCZ Vendetta

Hoping to unlock an extra core or 2. Remove the plastic honeycomb stuff from the top and front of the case. (yes? no?)


I'm replacing the EA-380 PSU with the Corsair. The EA-380 has a 80mm fan on the back but the Corsair has a 120mm fan on the bottom.

The jist:
That means either the fan faces the grate below and sucks air from below the case or I flip it upside down and it sucks air from inside the case. I have 4 - 120mm fans in the case already. If it sucks air from below the case I would think I would need an inlet filter there or the PSU will get crusty. And the grate looks like it needs to be at least partially cut out or it will be impeding the air flow to the PSU.

Any tips would be appreciated!

But the thing is, even all of these cables can fit behind the motherboard tray.

Believe it or not, the PSU will be absolutely fine mounted with the fan pulling in air from underneath without a filter or any kind of modification.

The rig will probably never use more than 50% of the PSUs total capacity, so the fan is likely to stay at its slowest speed for the entire time. So, this means that there's no need for a dust filter since the fan will only be spinning at maybe 600 to 800 RPM. Not only that, but the cables will be right next to the routing hole, and so that means only an inch or so of those cables will be showing as long as you pull them all through (which should be easy, even though it does require some physical labor).

I used to have the HX520W and the 9800 GTX+ in my system with exactly the way it is now since March 12th, 2008, and as near as I could tell, I could never get the fan to spin faster than its slowest speed. My ambient temperature is always 70-75°F. My system was just a piece of cake for it.

About 2 months ago, I swapped out the PSU for the HX650W to be prepared for the future (and also because a friend needed a really good PSU, so it was worth it). So the HX520W was in my system for over a year and a half, and it was mounted with the fan pulling the air in from underneath the case without any modification to that grill and without a dust filter. How much dust do you think I found? To my surprise, I couldn't see ANY dust. There was a little bit on the fan, but not enough to notice without careful study. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised considering that the fan was always spinning so slowly.

So there you have it: I am here to say that you basically have absolutely nothing to worry about.
