    Noober that is sweet, I think it's finally time I need to just build a damn NAS. This thing is getting crazy with riser cards and heavy!

    Looking good @rvcjew

    I see your sound card is mounted vertical. I was going to try that a while back but never followed through.

    Would you mind sharing what Riser Card/Cable you used? If it's a cable how is it mounted? Is it resting on the PSU, and or how is the card secured to the case if so. I tried zooming in on the pic but cant make it out even with my reading glasses.

    LOL, that is literally the part I bought to do it and its was a tight fit. The riser is under the second gpu and if zotac hadn't done a stylish cut out down there on there exo cage thing it would have not let the card sit in the slot. For the side it's ugly as I just used tin snips as I had a running system in there so was not going to use a dremel. It just rests in there and the back of the card is covered in electrical tape, I finally got a rca to 3.5 the other day so I can take the cables all out of the back without having to open the side to remove it's rca's.

    EDIT: It rests on the psu and just hangs off of its rca's, the cable is not long enough to let it slide down further and if it rests on the gpus its fine as it has the tap so no shorts, if you need more in depth pics let me know and I can get them. It's not clean looking but functional. If you tilt the case forward it will slide with it till the rca's hang it up I'v not had any issues yet though.

    Thanks, I was thinking that's how it was in there. Just haven't gave it a try yet. Think I will though

    Does the electrical tap help with possible feedback from the GPU when gaming? I only use the soundcard for music, when I game if I use it my buddies hear buzzing in skype.

    If the cable isn't long enough you can buy an extension cable.

    Thanks Steve. I only have one GPU, and my case has grommets for water cooling. I think I can route the cables there and use a MacGyver zip tie to secure the card
