I was a bit distressed when I realized my Scout 1 was a lightweight when it came to giving the GPU some space to stretch. When I bought it this wasn't something I considered at all and I started wishing I had got a different case. Still kinda wish I had one of them fancy easily remoable fan filter having, tons of space having fans everywhere having USB 3.0 having cases... but I think I found a solution to my potential GPU problem.


When i was upgrading from my LGA 775 build I realized that the 5.25" cage may be able to take the end of a graphics card if the PCI-e slot was high enough. I noticed this was down to mostly mATX boards and pretty much ruled out AMD since they have none of those afaik for their higher end. I bumped into the gryphon z87 and a deal later it's installed.

What I want to know from those that have mATX boards and/or have tested this is, does it work? Can you put in long graphics cards without them bumping into the edge of the 5.25" cage? Have yet to actually try. Still rocking a 5770/iGPU

Yes it does work. It puts the gpu just high enough to go over the 3.5bay and into the 5.25 Bay. If you want, it's 8 rivets to remove the hard drive Bay and pretty easy to do.

Only 2 slot GPUs though right? Not the three slot monsters that come out here and there

2 slot just slide in, a 3 slot would not fit in any configuration of mb that I have seen. if you look back at some of the scout build logs you can def see some people getting away with a 2 slot just sliding into the 5.25 bay

Been a little obsessed with making it look nice with as little money as possible, that's why there's electrical tape and hockey tape on the end of wires biggrin.gif




Do you guys think that a couple of these fans on the top and back or the same type without LEDs and a white LED strip along the top would look better?
