Need Help From Modders, I Cant Fit 3rd Graphic Card - Page 2

Or get a more capable case.

Just tested, I cant even get it to fit on the 3rd slot..(I thought I probably could)

I know galaxy makes a single slot card. But getting a more capable motherboard or case is not an option, spending on this project will be pointless since I am starting a new project with 580's in a couple of weeks...

Dont get me wrong, I am all up for modding and all, I have modded a lot of cases in the past just never had to cut the bottom of any case to fit a graphics card.

I just want to figure out a way to mount this card

Here's some pics, its dusty..








only option I see is 1. Cut the bottom, or 2. if I can drill and tap the motherboard risers about 2CM's higher or something, (not to worry as it wont how ever touch the PSU)..

Any suggestions appreciated.

you have 2 options.

1) cut the case to fit it
2) buy a new case

I would go with #2 and pick up a truly quality case that has 10 pci slots

edit: you do know you can't tri sli 460s...

I am not trying to tri SLI 460's, I want to use it with my 480's for dedicated physx

I am getting a new case this month(probably a raven or a TJ07) but not for this build. thats for another quad SLi build since they have more slots. But since this case has 7 slots so I wanted to squeeze in the 460 and put it to use.

All I wanted to do at the moment was find anyway to mount a dual slot card in there, but looks like I might have to try to drill and tap the mobo and vertically raise it the 2 CM's, that might get me the clearance without having to cut the bottom off.

Or if any one else has any better suggestions ??
