From the very first moment i saw the lian-li pci-01 tooless pci lock in their cases i felt that was the greatest single advancement in case technology i had seen since i got into this game about five years ago. When i bought the scout my first choice was the lancool pc-k62. I even had on my wish list. Now i love newegg; they helped me out when i bricked my 3850 with an rma (though i didn't tell them i bricked it) and for the most part they have the best overall pricing and availability on the market bar none. So i have great love for a great company, however, they do play musical chairs with pricing and shipping costs. So if they have a good deal on something you want get on it while the gettin' is good.

Back to the lancool. Awesome case with great features (except those hideous blue leds, no offense bri:d) with a price to die for. At that time, a couple of weeks before x-mas, it was $79.99 w/free shipping. I know, totally kick ass! Swap out those blue leds for red ones and i would have been ready for my current build. Then tragedy struck. Newegg bumped up the price to $99.99 and almost $20 for shipping. Well boys and girls that was a deal breaker, for another case had also caught my eye and it was the (warning! The author of this post is about to shamelessly plug a product. You have been warned) cooler master storm scout. Red leds , great looks, just the right size and oh... It was perfect; except the tooless pci locks left something to be desired, but at $89.99 w/free shipping the deal was struck when my daughter asked what i wanted for x-mas. So here i am with my beloved scout in the company of all of you fine folks here at ocn and the storm scout club thanks to newegg's pricing policy and a lovely loving daughter.

After purchasing the scout i was ogling the lancool pc-k62 again and i went to the lian-li website to do more research on the lancool (a guy can never have too many cases...right?!) i saw that they had the pci-01 listed in the case parts section! Rapture! I had to find where to buy it for i must have one for the scout. Again tragedy struck. It was too new and there was nowhere for it too be found, except in south africa. I know. Go figure. So in my desperate search i searched this site in my futile attempt to locate one closer to home because shipping from south africa was completely cost prohibitive. Any way i found a thread about the little sucker and everyone was in the same boat as me (thread located here http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...i-bracket.html) and it was andygoyap who discovered it was available at performance pcs. Finally! Now we're gettin' somewhere! I made up my mind right then and there that it would be mine, oh yes, it would be mine. When the time came to order my parts list from newegg i made a little side trip over to performance pc's and placed my order.

Now on to the build....

I know you guys want to know about the pci bracket but you'll just have to wait. I'm saving it for last.

First order of business was to sleeve all the case cables and the power supply.

i didn't need nor did i like the separate 4pin atx power cable to have to hide, so when i was in the power supply (warranty already voided whoops!) i cut it off.

I second this.¨

Penryn and Teraphy, looking good both of you

And too you ausies that had like 50c+, that's just stupid temperatures, when going too the airport before taking the straight plane too Jordan we drove through a city named Linköping in Sweden, it was pretty early in the morning but they had -28c!!

Been here for a week now and will be heading home later today, can't wait too get home too my own PC, the family laptop (512mb ram, Celeron M 1.4 GHz) doesn't realy do what I want it too it imploded a few times when reading the new posts in this thread
The weather has been really whack lately, it's the anniversary of the Black Saturday Fires from last year, and surprisingly it's been cold the weekend and was raining quite heavily down here...got almost 30mm of rain thursday night, thankfully the weather hasn't hit insanely temps, nor have we had any devastating fires.

But fook me, -28c perfect overclocking weather, hehe.

I actually RMA'd the first EVGA motherboard thinking it was defective. EVGA replaced the board, no questions asked. I had to use the stock CPU cooler for now. I cut a small piece of metal on the optical drive cage using a dremel to make room for the 5870. I don't know how BriSleep did his without cutting the cage, I just couldn't make it fit without cutting.

MMmmm sweet build dude! and welcome to the club!

Now on to the Lian-Li PCI-01 Mod. first I made the cuts...
Attachment 140388

Second I cut off the little tabs on the back of the unit..
Attachment 140393


Then marked the hole layout, drilled the holes and did a test fit..
Attachment 140389
Attachment 140390

It all fit well, but the pins on the clamps didn't line up with the screw holes; so I went to ACE hardware and got some screws and little nylon washers. I put two nylon washers between the bracket and the case wall closest to the pci slots and did not put any on the case edge side. That did it for the angle but there wasn't enough pressure to hold in a card. I then used my trusty dremel to oblong the holes for adjustment. That did the trick. By sliding the bracket towards the motherboard just a smidgen I had plenty of clamping force. Also by leaving out the washers near the case edge this allowed the unit to tighten up the structural integrity compromised by cutting out the case edge. Combined with screwing down the power supply only about 5% of structural rigidity was lost. For someone who doesn't do LAN parties or move my case about very often, this was good enough for me. I don't have sizes of screws or washers but it's not hard to figure out.
