Install GTX 980 ti waterblock :

I like realy the look of the waterblock and his lighting !

This is the first time i make a movie of this type. Therefore please be indulgent.:D



Vertical mounting of the GPU :

For this i need simply to cut the part in red. I have use a grinder for this but the tool is fat and not good for precision, so i have buy a dremel for the others cutings




After adjusting with a lime this is perfectly fit !:thumbup:



The final result and the future place for the 480 radiator (thank to my child for the temporary wedge:love4:) :

Adapting the case for 480 radiator :

For having the 480 radiator at the bot with the PSU i need to move this last vertically. So for this i have cut the mid plate and put the PSU.

But the bolts of the bars are solder on the case  and i can't push the PSU to the back. So i have remove him 82800748_decoupesupport.thumb.jpg.b65600ad7e66dd5588329ce414ed8431.jpg


A short movie of the operation.


I have also remote a little lay of metal for perfect adjustment and drill the rear panel with the new position of the PSU.



She is now perfectly fit. The old hole is stuffy with acrylic ( this screw is temporal, i have make with who i ave at this time)
