    Work continues on the PSU area.

    In order to fit the power supply where I wanted, I have to stand it on end. Which meant that I had to remove part of the case for airflow and to reach the power switch.

    I turned the case over and removed the back wheelset. I forgot to take a shot before cutting, so here's what it looked like lol.


    And here's after the cut. I later had to remove a bit more from the bottom of the case to clear the power switch. You will notice in the next couple of pics I repositioned the wheelset forward a bit.


    Here is the original back plate. I'm cutting off the PSU mounting portion and relocating it.


    Relocated! Now I can place the PSU in for a test fit.


    I'm using Corsair's 1KW power supply, which can accommodate the three EVGA GTX 260 cards in SLI. It has six 6-8pin cables right out of the box. No need for molex adapters!


    It is quite long, but it fits!


    Since I mutilated the original backplate, I needed to make a new one. So I grabbed some left-over aluminum panel and cut one to size.


    Then I curved the bottom portion so it would match the corner curvature of the case. Looking around the garage, I found a ladder wall hook to have a suitable tube diameter to bend around.


    And back on the case.


    Last thing to do was to cut the fan hole. The Corsair psu has a 140mm fan, so I found the center, used a compass to draw a 5 1/2" circle, and cut it out.


    I'm working on getting some grills made, so that will cover up the hole and finish it off.

    Cool idea with mounting the PSU like that Should give you a lot of extra space to work with.

    Thanks guys. It was really the only viable solution. I'm glad it worked out!

    Got a bit more work done last night. Made the pieces that will go in between the Typhoons and around
    the corner to complete the trident shape.

    I used more of the left-over side panel and cut two 9/16" strips.


    Then I bent them 90. Here's a shot of them in place to give you an idea. They will just be mounted to the
    wrap-around window with double-sided tape, as I dont want any visible fasteners.

    Yeah, I will be switching servers here real soon, cause my current host (1and1) is sporadic at best. Seems the server is down more than it is up lately.

    check back in a few, and the pics may show up then.
