I have removed the front panel and the mounting tray for the optical disc drive of my Chieftec UNI BT-02B-U3. Ordered my dual slot Club 3D Radeon R7 260X today, i hope its short enough for this case. Next step is to mod it from single slot to dual slot - simply cut & replace the lower part of the case.

[shameless self-advertisement]Just one slot with a Quadro cooler. thumb.gif[/shameless self-advertisement]

(As long as the 260X doesn't have stacked DVI ports, you might be able to mod it similarly. I can help out if you need it.)

Even 1.5 Slots is to much, let me take a photo with installed PSU:



I think 1.5 Slot will not fit. I hope, the GPU i've ordered isn't too long. website says around 22cm, but it looks a way shorter.

EWW. puke.gif The guys behind DVI don't exist anymore, yet we're still using it on flagship GPUs and it's still used on high-end monitors. Well then:

Step 1) take a soldering iron
Step 2) find the top DVI port's contacts
Step 3) desolder that piece of crap
Step 4) ask me for help with a cooler

That's the best I can do under the circumstances, lol.

I'd use a watercooled R9 nano myself, and stuff a 240 rad in the front tongue.gif

Thank you, Unicorn biggrin.gif

But i think im on the save side with modding the case a bit through cutting the chassis - I do not want to destroy my new card biggrin.gif I can practice on my GTX 660 OC ;D. But first i will see if the card fits length-wise, i hope so.

I can't find the mod, but I saw one some time ago (I've almost bought the same case) when the owner put a dual slot 7770 (or similar) and move the PSU above the CPU. Those 2x60mm fan brackets are very similar than SFX's mounting holes. You will need a ultra low profile CPU cooler.



The other option, is replace the SFX for a TFX psu, they are longer and thinner.

Just got done with my Core 500 build... thing is DENSE.

Dense with what? A Corsair RM650, Core I7 4790K on a H80i, and a Fury X make up most the weight.
The RM650 was actually an emergency buy... best thing Fry's had that was 160mm in length. EVGA SuperNova 750 P2 wasn't going to work.
Yes. Two AIOs. There were many colorful adjectives being said to get those things to fit.

Anyways, y'all just want pics.
Compared to Air 540


Another, length is the same.


Stuff in, top view.


GPU side view.


Wire mess.


SSD side view.


Peaking into the unused 5.25" slot. Had to make sure all these cables cleared that fan.



About to play some Fallout 4 to monitor temps... Fury X AIO is intaking, H80i is exhausting. Probably see a bit higher CPU temps because of that, but shouldn't be a big deal. Silence with crazy performance is the name of the game, I can deal with reasonably hot.

I've been trying out several case designs of varying sizes and cooling options for a R9 nano or Fury build for about two weeks.

Now I'm happy to finally settle on a design that uses the Nano, a 120mm AIO liquid cooler and a SFX PSU in a case under 6 liters in size. Now if I only had the money for all the parts redface.gif
