Antec Mini P180 and graphics card? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
The card that I have in my case just barely fits with the lower hdd bay in place. The end of the Galaxy GTX 460 actually pushes up against the sata cables and power of the hard drives that I have.
No warping though which is why I left it the way it is.

PM me if you want pictures.

Also, let me know if you actually pull the trigger on the build.

I'm thinking of upgrading to SB with that same motherboard you're looking at.

This is what Im going to do:


With an SSD this should be a SWEET build! I love what this guy did with the cables as well.

Full thread here:

Now I have to figure out what to do with my sig rig. I need some parts from it (mainly just PSU a drive or two) but would like to sell the rest.

I dont seem to have permissions to sell anything here on OC.net, any ideas?

I have an Antec P180 Mini and the P8P67-M Pro along with two Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 2GB in Crossfire. All of it fits no problem when you take out the bottom cage (which also is good to do since you can then add a 120mm fan as an intake there to blow air onto your graphics card).

I wouldn't really recommend Crossfire for mATX systems though. While it works fine for me at stock, it gets loud and hot (would definitely recommend a headset to block out the sound). I'm thinking of selling my 2 HD 5870 E6 2GB cards for a single HD 6990 to help improve airflow and whatnot; just don't know if its worth the price (bought my 2 HD 5870 E6 2GB's for $380 total brand new from Newegg's Shellshocker, absolutely love them).

Any video card should be able to fit into the case no problem as long as the bottom hard drive cage is removed.

Case and parts are on the way! Got the Asus GTX 580 with the big 'ol cooling on it. With an ssd, this is going to be (I hope a very quiet, very powerful system).
