PCIE risers are a thing you can use. I did something similar, had to cut a chunk out of the back, but turned the graphics card sideways so the case could be closed.

u/ZzLuckyCharmszZ · 16 pointsr/pcmasterrace

It looks like it's actually inside the ship. One of the PCIE lanes has an extender plugged into it. It would make more sense to have it under the motherboard because:

  • Having a GPU sticking up like that would ruin the flow and the look of the case

  • Having the IO side by side to the motherboard would make cable management easier.

    You can also see one of the pipes coming out of the hull of the ship, leads me to believe the video card is also being water cooled.

PCI-E riser cables are amazing.

Will MSI or another manufacturer be releasing ITX versions of the GTX 770/780?

EDIT: Second question, Will a PCIe Flexible Extender like ths affect performance?

u/BestMudkip · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Depending on when you deploy you might have enough time to buy a PCI-e Riser Cable. This would allow you to move your GPU down a tad and still have it connected to the mobo.

as long as he doesn't need his case to close, this'll let him plug it in:

u/themysteriousx · 3 pointsr/techsupportgore

I take it you didn't know these existed:

(or that the metal backplane from the card itself is removable)

u/JarJarBanksy · 3 pointsr/buildapc

First I think it's a waste of an NES, but only if you are destroying the electronics (assuming they are not already dead). I hope you'll keep the electronics or give them away to someone so that the actual system won't be dead. Maybe your next project could be building a custom NES.

Anyways, I think I know some parts that might help you.

First, A slim 7750

For something like this you should also want a pci-e riser cable/ribbon/kajigger.

Here's another thing you'll definitely want/need for a build of this size. The largest pico psu I can find and an appropriate power brick/adapter to go with it.

However, if you are going to use this for old NES games and such, you won't need the graphics card. The onboard graphics will be more than enough.

There is a significant issue though The pico psu is meant only to run at 160 watts, 200 peak. I pretty sure that is going to estimate power usage to be at max, but the issue is that at max, this system draws 163 watts. Now, I don't know if this would be sustained for long periods of time if you ran the system under full load, but I feel like it would be an issue.

When I say this system, I am referring to this. The psu is not on pcpart picker so it isn't on that, but you can imagine it being there.

u/frank26080115 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I posted it a few days ago,

I do have one picture of the riser wrapped in foil

My riser cable only cost $6, , even $30 sounds like too much

u/horizontalcracker · 3 pointsr/CableManagement
u/Aarenas52 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Also I just looked it up and pretty much really slim cases, I found one by Silverstone RVZ01. Another one is evolv itx

And lastly Sugo SG13. 

Out of the 3 I think I'm going for the Silverstone. Instead of using a hard pci-e extension (because of the way the gpu goes) I am buying a cable one so it's easier to deal with.

Linus made a video of the Silverstone RVZ01

here is one for the sugo

And lastly the evolve itx case

Like I said I prefer the Silverstone and will be using something like this, but I'll make sure I find a good one.

u/Ayoria · 2 pointsr/litecoin

try some of the suggestions for 6950s on this site

and to keep heat down especially with 3 cards I would recommend the use risers on either every other card or all of them and spread them out for better airflow.

edit: formatting

u/TheTraegs · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

In order to make this work, you'll have to buy a PCIe extender because there's no way a graphics card is going to fit in there. And you'll need a new monitor, the monitor included in the all-in-one will always pull from the integrated graphics, there's no way around this. While a new graphics card is active in your machine, the old built in monitor will be blank and unusable.

In the end, with a custom proprietary motherboard like this, there's no guarantee that a graphics card will even work with it even if you can get it plugged in. At this point, you're better off just getting a new computer.

u/Mif425 · 2 pointsr/sffpc

You won't be able to use the riser for anything new. The PCI signals are different from PCI-E.

I would re-use the metal bracket, but switch to flexible PCI-E risers if you are using a newer motherboard:

This will allow you to use the metal bracket, but connect modern cards/GPU's.

u/combatchuck · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Ah, that's where my confusion is coming from. The board you have listed on PCPartpicker is the full size ATX MSI Z87-G45 with 3 PCIe slots. If you have the MATX version, you could do well to get some more space between those cards. That 980ti is a real cooker.

Alternatively, you could get a PCIE extender cable and move it down a slot or two.

u/TrollerMauler12 · 2 pointsr/Amd

If Your card is having trouble fitting, you can get a PCIe riser like this ( Before that, your problem may be with drivers. Please put your HD 7950 back and install Intel Driver Update Utility to check if you have proper chipset drivers, and then make sure you have the newest driver version for AMD. If you don't, upgrade and place the 480 in and it should work!

If that does not work, please, before you do this, enable Intel Integrated Graphics so you will not have to do a CMOS reset in case you are left without a a video output (keep Intel Integrated as a backup for now). Take your HD 7950 out (use integrated graphics) and this time uninstall all AMD drivers (if you cannot do it from Windows Control Panel, use Put the RX 480 in, and this time, it should work. Make sure your display connector is in the card's output.

u/YouCanIfYou · 2 pointsr/techsupport

FYI: to get around the crossfired GPUs, there are such things as PCIe slot extenders.

u/ZeroPaladn · 2 pointsr/buildapc

> Is there anything special to prevent static/errant fingers getting into fans/etc.?

Static is handled just like any other case, it's still a grounded frame touching the PSU. Fingers, on the other hand (heh), are handled through sheer force of will. Don't touch it!

You'll want a PCIe riser cable to connect the GPU to the motherboard if you want mount it securely to the underside of the desk away from the motherboard.

u/Reddit_Plastic · 2 pointsr/LinusTechTips
u/muledog17 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I would put it in a small(ish) case and get something like this

And lay the GPU down so that way the weight of the GPU won't stress the mobo.

u/Dyran504 · 1 pointr/buildapc

It depends on how long you need it to be, one like this Would work great, but it is only 7 inches long. You could use a 1x to 16x USB riser like this it will reduce the bandwidth which will affect the performance of 3d rendering slightly.

u/Dracomarine · 1 pointr/pcmods

Here is my build. I used a pci express extender so i could flip the video card horizantal with the fans facing up. This is vital for airflow. Also i highly recomend the latice i used, its amazing for airflow, provides ample protection and isnt too hard to work with. Just make sure to seal it with something non conductive.

For mounting the motherboard to the case i used plastic motherboard risers and superglue. This didnt stick well but it isolate the motherboard from the case electrically.

Your case look good, im just looking to pu everything possible inside of my next project so i figured adding a keyboard in a slide out slot under might be sometthing to look into.

I would also look into using a laptop lcd instead of a dedicated monitor to save space and weight.

u/kart64 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

They have extenders too. Never used one before though

u/cadweasel · 1 pointr/BitcoinMining

You can get them from Amazon.
They function as a cable extension, gives you more freedom to move the video card for air circulation. Some examples of the risers in use. I think this is a more elegant solution than a plastic crate.

u/derik123derik123 · 1 pointr/litecoinmining

This is the alternative I was looking for. I completly forgot about this.
I am not UK based and I also did a search for pci-e(Idk if it matters at all)
I came across this one
Now, the only question would be is how would this work with a case?

u/Chasem121 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Have you looked into getting a pcie extender and mounting the gpu somewhere else inside your case?

u/drjakeyoung · 1 pointr/buildapc

Bassically I have a lenovo ideacentre 300 and the graphics card is not compatible with the motherboard (due to there not being enough pins) and I think I've found a solution, which is to basically connect this and then connect the graphics card and psu to it. It would be messy, but that's not a problem for me. The real question is, would it work?

u/Metaldrake · 1 pointr/buildapc

HDMI is really confusing for me with all the versions and whatnot and I might be completely wrong about this, but I believe only HDMI 1.3 and later can go past 60hz @1080p, even then right now the latest version of HDMI only supports 1080p at 120hz. So you will need a card that supports a HDMI 1.3 output and later, and a monitor that can also support a HDMI 1.3 and later output. Having to check and make sure of all of this is difficult as not every website/retailor will list the version of HDMI on their products.

edit: alternatively a PCIE riser cable might help you be able to use a high-profile card.

u/alekcand3r · 1 pointr/buildapc

Well, if it has pci express slot you could remove the back pannel and use something like but even if that cable works (reviews are mixed), you still need to power it up (and I doubt that PSU is powerful enough in that centre)...

u/michaelrulaz · 1 pointr/buildapc

I was thinking of making it out of 1/4" acrylic and just designing it myself.

I'm just on the fence about using something like this

I don't know how reliable that would be

u/jchamb2010 · 1 pointr/eGPU

You could probably use the board out of this with a custom chassis and PCI extenders:
PCI Extenders:

To allow 3 full sized graphics cards on a single TB3 connection.
Alternatively if you really only need 2 cards:

u/larkin1842 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/Hard_Celery · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/ryanrapini · 1 pointr/computers

Some options that come to mind:

  1. Swap the GPU on /r/hardwareswap for a mini gpu. Some options are the r9 Nano or the RX 570 Pulse

  2. Install water cooling to shrink the size of the cooler.

  3. Use a PCI-E riser to relocate the GPU to a place where it fits in the case. (will require some cleverness to come up with a way to mount the GPU)
u/ZarianPrime · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I think I found what he used (or something similar)

Hmm I might build my next system using one of these, and have each major component in it's own "case".

u/HBashammakh · 1 pointr/buildapc

RE: PCIe extender, you mean something like this?

If this is it, then how do I keep the GPU from sagging ?

Do I really need to mod the PSU cables to make it fit ? I am quite hesitant to do so. Is there a fully modular alternative that can still fit using the extender ? Because it seems to have bought you some space at the expense of having to use only 2 PCI slots.
As for the power cables, I already bought some 90 degree PCIe power plugs adapters off of ebay ( as this was highlighted already in the Ncase google sheet. It's not gonna look pretty due to the yellow wiring, but it should do. Maybe I will cover it up with some custom sleeving later.

u/KeyserSOhItsTaken · 1 pointr/battlestations
u/Xitrial · 1 pointr/buildapc

If all else fails you can use a pcie extension cable

u/Eagle19991 · 1 pointr/cade

if you are worried about height for the video card, you can always use a PCI-E extension and stick it pretty much anywhere you want as long as you have the length:
very cheap and easy fix, can get them in all kinds of lengths too

u/kk0425 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

For everybody asking if those are PCI cables, they're these:

u/HeavyHDx · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

You could get something like this and put the card in vertically. Not sure if your case supports mounting the card like this though.

u/CCGigabyte · 1 pointr/buildapc

I was recently thinking about doing something like this to my old PS3 super slim.

I'm not exactly sure how I'd wedge everything in there, but for the graphics card I was thinking of grabbing a PCI-E extender and grabbing something like this 750 Ti and shove it in on its side.

u/lt_bob · 1 pointr/homelab

You'll have to look for a PCI extender. Something like this. Edit: Nevermind, forgot that the system comes with a daughterboard that allows horizontal mounting. I never used one of these but I've seen people being fairly successful with them.

u/BrittasFicka · 1 pointr/techsupport

They might be talking about a pci-e extension cable - some people use them to mount things like large graphics cards in custom or tiny cases, when it doesn't fit straight into the socket.

Something like this:
It lets you potentially extend and reorient your pci-e slot to a better position where you have more room, if there is some free room elsewhere in the case.

u/StarSlayerX · 1 pointr/buildapc

You can get a PCIE riser cable, but the card will not correctly fit the expansion slot holes anymore.

u/riftalicious · 1 pointr/oculus
u/WildSide_VR · 1 pointr/gaming

I have seen a PCIe extension ribbon before. You might want to try building your own bench case. Like screw everything to a wood block.

u/MuchRedditLessTime · 1 pointr/HardwareSwapUK

Got some pics.

Two things to note if you plan on adding a GPU - the PSU is proprietary and the case only takes half-height GPUs - however it does have a PCIex16 slot so you can either use a riser or try to mod the case if you wanted a full-sized card to fit - and use an external power supply for the GPU Austin Evans-style.

Otherwise there's built in VGA and DisplayPort outputs running off the iGPU and decent low-profile cards exist - think the GTX 750 does?

u/Superpickle18 · 1 pointr/computers

I never used one of these before, but this would seem way better for high power usage than trying to send 75watts (max pcie power limit) of power across a single cable.

u/th0masr0ss · 0 pointsr/buildapc
u/G65434-2 · 0 pointsr/homelab

>I can't find a 3U system that has sideways full-height PCIe slots
get a pcie riser card or 90 degree daughter board

> a single 6U case would allow for a shared water cooling loop

I'm still not seeing the benefit. You're going to want a rad for each component (gpu/cpu) a reservoir and pumps. you could maybe break it down to 1 reservoir/1pump but you're spending more money on the case and necessary modifications to do it. If this weren't about cost id say " it but go big."

u/Techmyst · 0 pointsr/shittybattlestations

Why not just get one of these?

u/OICU814 · -1 pointsr/sffpc

I'm not sure why his would be 90 bucks more. I'm sure it's higher qualityn but that's a hell of a premium.
