that's not tooooo bad, it's a true dual slot it will have to go in to the HTPC or go back but, 1.5 slot should be doable or just barley do able.

Is there any cheap cases that are about the same size as the ISK-110 with a PCIe slot? I'm currently using the ISK-110 for a PFsense build but want to add a pcie wireless card to it.

Lone Industries L3 has 2 slots - but its te best option i can think of apart from maybe a Streacom chassis

quietpc have a full range of streacom chassis if you want to suss them out

Technically, it only has 1.5 slots as you can only mount a single PCIe bracket on the back but the case allows for more space to make Low-profile GPUs fit. The space where the second bracket would normally go is vented and a little bit smaller than it would need to be for a second bracket to fit.

I currently have a L3 but I don't think I want to spend that much again on a case for a PFsense router lol. I was trying to get one under the 50$ range with a pcie slot so that I can still afford a picopsu as well lol

So I've hit a wall with my current project when choosing a flex riser to use. I know the manufacturer already, but the question is whether I want a right or left angled riser.



With the right angle, I have a shorter ribbon cable and better airflow for the GPU exhaust, but I would need to make the case slightly thicker and it would prevent me from moving the GPU down a bit and swapping fans later on.
With the left angle, the side exhaust of the GPU is blocked a little bit, but it allows the case to be as slim as possible and gives more flexibility with the exact placement of the GPU.

If you could help me out here, I would be very grateful.

well it doesn't fit. i removed the shroud and it does. i'll have to see if i can find a way too actively cool it well enough to stay below 100c under extended heavy use. all else fails i can find another use for it.

I guess using a 2.5" drive instead isn't an option? Because that would give you plenty of room.

yeah my thoughts exactly. that's a 5tb so my movies and steam library will actually fit and the drive not be 99.9% full. the 5tb is already 45%-55% full. i'm gonna see if i can get a better flowing fan at the END of the heat sink. depsite being upside down BTX or what ever, Dell DID put some air holes next to the DVI/HDMI port are despite not begin design for more than single slot card. so there is a place for it to escape. and of course i can always drill more holes. biggrin.gif i've also though about taking a laptop heatpipe sink and bolting it to the core and since they have 90 degree bends using a the laptop cpu fan to put the air out the side of the case. being around 60 watts that might be doable. especially if i AS5 epoxy a second and or more heatsink(s) on the heat pipe or existing heatsink(s)

You know that there's a 2TB 2.5" drive by Samsung that's just 9.5mm thick, right? You could easily put two, maybe even three of those in your rig, giving you similar storage with better thermals for the GPU.
