Why's everyone using a Corsair in their K62? I'd guess because damn-near everyone's got a Corsair.

Just put my K62 together... anyone else bend one of the pci latches installing a nvidia gtx2xx? mine is a evga gtx280 and the bottom clip unit is looking for a "notch" that aint there for the bottom part of the mount. i love this case... but me thinks some modding is in order. i moved out of a CM690 that had 6 fans 3 intake and 3 exhaust, in that case my GTX280 would idle around 40-50c... in the K62 that jumped to 70c, i flipped the front top fan to intake and the idle temp dropped to 50-55, so i think ima either cut a fan hole in the lower right portion of the window (really DONT want to do that) or cut a whole in the bottom of the case between the HD cage and the power supply for an intake fan, with the only designed intake being the one in front behind the HD cage, air cooling aint getting it done.

as for the top left hole for the 4/8pin cpu- i feel all your pain, aside from removing the connector, my best option was a $6 extension cable, cut off the little side flanges, bend the wires at the back of the connector and feed thru at a downward angle pin side first... slipped right in.

Well, it's got 8 expansion slots, so as long as your boards got 4 PCI-E x16s spaced appropriately you should be able to fit them...

That said, I'm not sure how well it'd cool them. It's got pretty good airflow, but 4 260s is a heck of a lot of heat. Good luck with that.
