    Mnpctech got a reaction from TVwazhere in MAD MAX TRIBUTE PC BUILD   
    Thank you guys! I had to shelve progress on this build to get two other commissioned builds finished
    metro exodus PC, https://youtu.be/Mz6ozE1X62s?t=54
    Dirt rally PC, https://youtu.be/KFAfyxdKBTE?t=51
     
    Took everything out last night to re-evaluate where I left off on this project. The last stage was mounting the EK reservoirs to emulate the rear fuel tanks in Max's Interceptor. I'm debating about making a roof line over the middle section of the case or hood with blower cut-out to cover the front. I know either would involve several hours of trial and error fitting. That time could be re-focused on progression of other thing on the build. That's a perfect example of being a victim to your own project scope creep.

    Thank you for being patient with me. I had to pause progress so i could get the exodus pc finished in time for their launch and currently working build for DiRT Rally 2.0 giveaway. Once thats finished, I can hopefully (sigh) get back to this project. Personal projects always get halted so I can pay the bills.

    Whatever you decide on doing in terms of either a simple 120mm hole, A 280x140mm long rectangle, a simple pattern like what @Mnpctech does on the Evolv cases, or a fancier design like this NZXT H700 on reddit, anything you decide to do should drastically improve airflow.

    Mnpctech reacted to TVwazhere in Virtical GPU mount that doesnt occupy all expansion slots   
    Even if you DIY your own version, yoiu're most likely going to find the card itself blocks the rest of the PCI-E slots anyways. 
     
    The honestly easier and alternative method to reducing the strain on your GPU is a support bracket. There's a few types. the DIY method which is to jsut put something under the card to hold it up. It can be strictly functional like a cardboard tube, or have an aesthetic purpose like a lego figure.


     
    If you'd rather a custom solution, there's under bracket solutions like the ones @Mnpctech sells here -> https://mnpctech.com/gpu-support-bracket/

    You can also get cheap plastic versions on amazon but they're probably not suited for heavy cards.

    Fianlly the last option is a adjustable stand from Coolermaster (or others like it)

    Mnpctech reacted to TVwazhere in Fractal Define nano S, or Fractal define c? Case for my portable pc build.   
    I've used both the Define C and Define Mini C(I reviewed specifically the Define Mini C in my Purple build, didnt make a review for the Define C). It's the same case but the Mini C is smaller (and as such can only hold 2 120mm fans at the front instead of 3) Everything else is exactly the same and you'd be happy with either, thoguh for space savings i'd probably go with the Define Mini C. 
     
    For an added bonus you could always install custom handles to the top of the case @Mnpctech
    https://mnpctech.com/pc-case-lan-party-gaming-carry-top-server-tower-handles/
    I'd recommend the bar handles for cheap effectiveness or the Spring loaded ones for compactness.
