Most of the 1155 mobo's are slot 2 and 4. The only 1155 mobo that will work for my build is the ASUS P8P67-M PRO.

b4 the release of Sandy Bridge i was going to get either the ASUS Rampage III Gene or the ASUS Maximus III GENE. Im still leaning towards the 1366 mobo. Its been out the longest and it still has potential. But considering that ill be on all water, the 1155( w/ its low power consumption and heat) looks more desireable. just waiting on a suitable mobo to be released.

I want to finish doing case mods b4 i get any hardware. that wont be for a few months. so hopefully asus releases a nice red and black mobo.

Her is the current interior pic as of yesterday. (the psu will change to a corsair AX850)
well it would look good if you got the genes
for that switch thing are you going to put it black in slot 5?
if the wires dont poke out THAT much you can put it in 7 and run in behind the radiator and freeing up 5.
also if you are running dual slots with gpu blocks, cant you just find one of those single slot pci things? or cut it in half?

The switch thing will be relocated on the bottom of the case. Along w the switch for the NZXT Sleeved LED Cable Kit - 1M - Red that im using for inside the front panel.


The back fitting for the rad will be a rotary 90° to the top of the last GPU. So thats gonna take up some space. I want to use the rotary instead of the straight 90° for less restriction. I'm gonna have enough or that going on already. It's not about the location of the card as much as the hose routing that im going to have to deal w/.
The inside of the case will be very busy w/ hoses and i still want to keep a clean look, or as much as i can.


Will this work on a PC-A05? my res will cover part of the pci slot screws. this would make it easier.

PCI-01
Yes that product is almost universal. it only takes two screws to hold it down. But you will sacrifice some cooling ventilation and you will have to mod your screw holes.. But yes.. I saw a guy put one of these in a Cooler Master Case.. It is that universal.

The other question I will leave to my staff of Water Coolers on this thread.

Been messing around w/ window cuts and wanted to see what you guys thought.

The first one would be a simple window the size of the mobo. The lower fans and top rad would be just out of view.


The second and third are very similar, one includes the lower fans, and the other one includes the fans and the rad.



The 4th would be kinda like an upside down corsair obsidian type window. I could expand upon this to include more area at the top and bottom.


The last is just a huge window that would show off the entire inside of the case.


Im leaning more towards the 4th one, just because its more unique. but idk yet. what do you guys think?

I think I would go with the first one because it would hide the fans (but their light would "glow" from the bottom) and would hide cables coming off drives / power supply.

Have you ever thought of a "shape" for a window. Harder cut, but would give you some of the unique qualities you're looking for.

Here is one that I use an ADT sign for ..



I drew this one with a pencil and a ruler..



I did a 7 1/2 by 10 inch window that I can't find a picture of.. Don't make the windows too big or it shows too much wires and hard drive Ass.
