Got them dude. Got two 7 port USB hubs by Aquacomputer.

But, you still need three board headers (so 6) to feed it all and make it work.

If you connect the case usbs to a hub they don't work.

Seriously the pc I use is absolutely mental when it comes to how much stuff is crammed in there

However, it's amazing. Totally mental. Aquasuite is just badass.

Love this, a genuine reason to upgrade. I did the same with my step father. Good on you.

Now I realise why you guys got so angry about the RTX 2080 Ti launch and pricing... it's almost like some of you don't feel you have a choice lol

I could have put a fully working 980Ti or GTX1660Ti in his machine, but since he plays Elite Dangerous using my Rift the 1080Ti made more sense and a upgrade for me.

So decided to opt for vertical GPU when I found my 1000D had the vertical mount in the tool kit already.



ABSOLUTELY disgusting how much I had to pay for a Riser cable... And not because its ASUS, but all are overpriced here. Fractal one did not reach far enough for me. And only other options were extremely cheap. Plus some with poor user feedback.

Asus one is very good quality though.

Anyway. Noticed something odd.

Timespy Extreme and Firestrike Ultra both scored 150 points higher with the Riser and in SLOT 2 than running the GPU direct in the PCIe in Slot 1.

Further more, although a little obvious.. Temp was lower with vertical GPU than default. What I didnt expect was a 10C difference... :O




Additionally, bought this for my love of mechwarrior and Elite Dangerous.

Fractal is easy that long. You should have said I have one I'm not using.
