I'm still playing with building myself, but you certainly make a good point about wire shelves. I'm looking at 'tech benches' at the moment, seems a nice compromise between case and no-case (I don't feel entirely comfortable having a board not securely anchored, but I'm kind of a huge wuss).

P.S. I never said thanks for this article, I built most of my stuff before I read this but it was still a good read nonetheless Smiley

with the horrible "push-clip" securing style
Oh man, I forgot about those. Yeah, they're terrible! I took them off (which was easy).

And yes, you're right about the case connectors. Those wouldn't fit a long video card. If you don't have a case, though, you don't need those connectors, so not a huge deal.

But...

My favorite board thus far is the MSI 890FX-GD70
Yeah, that's a nice board  Cool. It's a shame the last slot is unusable if you have a case.

But, as I said, I probably wouldn't use a case again. I'd just buy a wire shelf from the hardware store, cardboard, and twisty ties. Heck, you could even use extenders and dangle video cards from an upper shelf with the mobo below it Tongue

Hi fpgaminer. I hope you don't mind me linking my tread to yours. I'm consolidating build discussions Smiley
