Thanks. I just went through building my system here. It ended up being more work that I had anticipated. Have found lots of help and helpful people on this site.

I see, I did a mock up today, with all three video cards, and my soundcard while i wait on a few parts, It will be tight. I guess, I can try and RMA if it doesnt work

Ok, had some last minute orders, of parts, Card spacing was odd on Rampage. Trying some adapter for single card space instead of tubing. Got the resivoir in, just bent the crap out of the middle brackets till they snapped off, went in fine then. Also since I am waiting, went ahead and ordered the EK backplates. Will try to put them all on or some, and RMA what wont fit with my soundcard. Case is pretty tall, so needed some extenders for cables. Once again, it will be race the FEDEX man to my house, if any of it has to be signed for. Got a Koolance adapter for the external rad mount that will let me use a 120 fan. Kinda just waiting now. As long as the parts, come in early, ( i requested overnite for all) I should be able to get rest together, and start leak testing Friday. If that goes well, get os and drives installed at get some baseline temps and benches in Sunday. As long as my Voodoo mojo holds out.

So you did a mockup without the backplates? If that's a tight fit, it'll never fit with the backplates. I think the backplates add about 4/5 mm to the overall height of the card.Do not forget to use the plastic rings between the pcb and the backplate!!If you forget those, you can short and brick your cards.

Yes, they are, but i think the looks justify the thickness.......With a bit of light they look like a million bucks of bling.

My rig is a bit dusty now, but i think you can see what i mean with the size of the backplates.
