Did you find a plx pci-e splitter? I know over on [H] me and some folks were talking about this back when the asrock x99 mITX launched but we couldnt ever find the right setup that would work to split the cards and keep the full 16x lanes.

My guess is he's not going to use x16 per GPU and just run it in x8/x8 over a passive splitter with the built-in bifurication settings on the ASRock boards. It's not like you need anything more than PCIe 2.0 x8 for a GPU anyway.

What timerwin63 has said is correct. I mean it would be nice to do but x8 will be good enough for now.

Gotcha, Im gonna be honest. The only reason my Acorn build is running mATX is because on [H] no one could get a confirmation on how the buriffication worked at the time and no one had the board and 2 gpu's to test any pci-e splitter risers. I couldnt afford to buy the x99 board/cpu/ddr4 and then find out it wouldnt work and have to pay restocking fees to return everything lol.

So I did some, uh, custom work in my Hadron today. I chopped the included PSU up to make a blank of sorts with an included extension. Moved the drives down below the GPU where the PSU used to be, and put my SX600-G in the front. And yes, those are zipties. They're working beautifully. The thing is close to dead silent, especially compared to the airport tarmac it used to sound like.





I also modded an eMachines T1096 this past weekend to fit some mid-level watercooling and a 670 in there. Now all it needs is a CPU and a fill.


I see now why some of the watercooling guys like their big cases. The fittings up near the res destroyed my fingers because of the tight squeeze.

I hit it with liquid electrical tape when I got home from work. I didn't have anything on hand for it at the time, so I had to run to the hardware store and grab some. I only ran it as pictured for maybe an hour or two last night to see if it was functional. Just thought I'd let you all know I didn't have a death wish.
