Okay, here are the pics I finally have of this build. Unfortunately I don't have the pics uploaded of my two new 7900GTX cards yet, but I will post them soon. The case is VERY crowded with them in it, and now I am considering buying a new case, even though I am very fond of the Antec P-180.
Stacks of stuff waiting for my case to arrive...
It's here... (yay!)
An obvious problem (but not an unforseen one...)
Well... Sort of... lol
This has been a very fun (but very tight) build...
Believe it or not, I don't have many air flow blockage issues, and, until I installed the two 7900GTX cards, there seemed to be plenty of room in my case. Granted, I did have to remove the bottom case fan in order to install my ridiculously over-sized PSU, but the PSU fan pulls plenty of air through that chamber to keep both the PSU (which does not run hot at all) and all of my Caviars cool.
Now, with the installation of the 7900GTX cards, I had some very obvious issues. The cards are huge, and it wasn't easy to install even just one of them, much less two. They fully take up two slots (possibly more) and extend from the back of the case all the way to the hard drive enclosure, with the 6-pin power plugs facing the front of the case, making wiring in a mid-tower case a HUGE issue. Moreover, the fact that ASUS has chosen to locate the Nvidia raid SATA clips right behind the 5th slot on the PCI bus means that those connections are almost completely inaccessible with a second video card installed. I was able, with low profile sata cords, to barely attach cables to the lowest two (drive 0 and 1) connectors, but even then, there is contact with the card's plastic fan shroud, and a bit of pressure on the connectors, which is why I am considering moving over to the DFI Lanparty UT, which wisely places the Nvidia raid connectors well out of the way of the video cards, and has a low enough chipset fan to accomodate them without undue pressure on anything.
At this point, though, I am just glad to have a running computer that I can play around with for a bit, and I'm taking a bit of a rest from construction...
