I've come here looking for advice..
This is my current build, 900d. Formula VI, I7 4770k. 2 7970's.
I have a 3rd. Im using polished CSQ Blocks and pumps. I even have a 2nd pump 2nd rad and 2nd res to add.
Apparently I did not do the research to find out that EKWB does not make an acrylic CSQ SLI bridge for Z77 or Z78..
They make an acetal one, pitch black.. I think it would break up the "theme" I have going.. I bought a 3way Acrylic SLI, before i realized the slots dont line up..
First idea, Bight the bullet buy the Acetal block.. (dont like)
second. Mount the videocards all 3 using PCIE extenders like they are normally mounted. I was doing the planning. I can pul a square aluminum tubewhere the PCIE slots thumb screw down about 3 inches away. Mount the cards like they are in slots. I would still be able to use the DVI ports with out cutting the case in the normal slots..
3rd.. Mount the cards at an angle, to cover the PCIE extenders. Hack up the case and build a bracing for everything..
4th Lay the cards horizontal at the bottom of the case on a mid plate. The PCIE would be kind of visable but covered by the height of the cards.. Both 3 and 4. I would have to hack up the case to allow the DVI ports to connect..
Any thoughts or ideas? I want this to be unique, but I want it to work. The amount of work is not a big deal, but i dont want to start hacking things up and make it look half ass and never get it working.. SO the best idea, Tobe the most unique, look the most modded . and visual be pleasing..
