I wanna change my pc case to an open case so i can easily change and upgrade parts.
I'm looking at this open pc case.
It gives me the option to have the gpus raised which i think might help if i go sli in the future to have both raised and not having to use water or hybrid cooling.
About hdds i'm thinking to mount this open case on top of this mobile short shelving unit where i can place the hdds on the shelves.
For the hdds i'm thinking to mount them in this hdd cages and then place them on the shelves.
I have 14 hdds and would want to have room for at least 10 more for future proof.
I have the evga 1600w t2 psu and i think its sata power cables can take up to 15 hdds. What is the max hdds this psu can handle and can i use splitters if i need in the future to mount more hdds?
Also can i use an hba card like the LSI 9305-24i x8 lane without losing any significant performance from my gpu when gaming?
About protecting my pc components from dust i'm thinking to wrap the shelving unit with some custom dust filter, i dont wanna use zipties to hold the filters on the shelving unit so i hope you guys can give me some ideas for quick and easy removal of the filters when i need to access the pc components.
Would like to dust filter the open mining case on top of the shelving unit too if possible.(no mining intended i just like the case).
If you guys can recommend me better parts for my project that dont break the bank please do.
Thanks in advance for any help or advise you guys can give me!
