I had actually ventured the same route as I had that idea for my Vulcan when I was modifying it. It took me a while to find it but I finally did lol

They are pretty high quality and I also have one myself from the build and ended up not using it because it was an idea that i had almost halfway through my project.

You can also cut out the vents on the back panel and make another slot there and just connect it via pcie ribbon or just make it a dedicated vent zone if you have an aftermarket cooler on your card that dumps heat back into your system

Man I am really wanting to get this case again lol

The problem with those I/O expansions is that you will have to weld it together with the rest of the natural frame of your computer as it will not be a picture perfect fit.

wow thanks man, I didnt know they actually made I/O shields. Im planning on just removing the old one and im going to rivet the new one in. when I put the CPU water block on I believe I will be able to move the PSU up to where the 80mm fan is. My thought on this is if I can get an ATX board in there I will most likely never switch cases again. I love this case and its portability. mATX case, ATX board, and water cooled! What more could you ask for!

You may also want to look into using those 5.25" drive bay PSU's

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=115

Can use this one for the motherboard and other basic things

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=122

these one for VGA cards

Not sure how available they are in the land of today as I think they were 08' but im sure there will be something available somewhere as servers often use this type of PSU.

Thanks for the suggestion but i plan on removing the drive bays altogether to make room for a 240mm rad in the front of the case. I didn't even know they made stuff like this! I have many plans for this build but im gonna have to go one step at a time, so first thing is the watercooling.

Just make sure that you make a solid decision before you start pulling triggers lol, I was still doing a lot of research but pulling triggers as I went so even though I was still quite proud of what I had, it could have been much more refined lol

Did you buy the bitfenix starter pack or did you buy those individually? Cause I was thinking about getting some green ones after I build my system.
I buy those bitfenix cable individually and its also come in green and some other colours too.

Ya im going to have to be real careful or it could end up looking like crap, but I wont move the PSU until I can get a fully modular one.

well, i always had the idea of using a pci extender cable and mounting another graphics card here, sideways of course tongue.gif


it would be close enough for a crossfire/sli cable and if done right, could look pretty sweet.

thats a pretty cool idea and one I hadnt thought about, but I think it isnt long enough to fit a card there without having to remove that 80mm fan.

then there is still the problem with how you will mount it there and keep it stable. If you could come up with a custom bracket to screw into the card that will mount there let me know because this could be a great way to expand this options of this case.

They sell those as well thumb.gif Come on man, I have been through this lol.

Only problem is most of those parts are only held at frozencpu and I dont really care for their policies that they enforce there. Like if a product is damaged or if they missed something in the manifest they assume absolutely no responsibility and will not reimburse you for it. so I only order from them when I absolutely have to
