900s n9o different.

try 260'ss and a DA700!



Had to add 3 holes for cables. One for the 8 pin, 1 for the front header and 1 to route the psu lines back.... And remember the psu if fully modular.

That's one of the better wire management jobs I have seen in a 900/300 despite having to larger gpu's to deal with I'll have to look into adding some holes like that.

I was totally turned off by the 300/900 because of the cable management. Sleeving makes everything look neater, and dremels are indispensable.

No side window = no need to be perfect with my wiring. At least to me, anyway.

I may go back someday and improve mine, but not for a while.
