I was able to put everything inside the cube as plannedEverything fits perfect in the cube, but..... (fu...ing BIG form factor PCIe extensions cables Anyway, I have a fix for this already)
Right now, I'm having trouble with the pcie extension.
I tried it many times, until I remembered someone mentioned to use aluminum foil to cover it, and BUM! it started working. It seems there is some kind of interference.
I'm using a rather long extension: the only one that fits by itself.
The issue is that it's very likely to get broken (like it did), so I need to get a new one...
Nice job and thanks for being bold and trying some new things. I have been following your build as I am planning to use some of your solutions for my own build. Aluminum foil? Which part(s) of the extension did you wrap?
I look forward to seeing more pics, especially as to where you fit in the video card on the actual build.
Hi! I wrapped the cable part of the extension, just up to the PCIE connectors.
I bought already some replacements for the cables that got broken. I'll post again as soon as I get the connectors and replace the broken ones for the new ones(wrapped in aluminum)
