Default tubing squeeze

I had a couple of PCI slots open at the bottom and just bent the metal supports a little with some pliers to feed the tubes through-put some mesh over the gap. Can just bend it back if need be. Saved drilling a hole.

The PCI slot adaptor I got with the kit to feed the tubing just didn't cut it.

Yeah, the tubing will fit with no modding. I just used some metal snips and cut one of the supports out of the way, made it a lot bigger. Dont worry about dust, it shouldnt come in from the back anyway.

If you want to pretty up the holes you make for the tubing, hardware stores sell individual rubber grommets in their "everything but the kitchen sink" bins.

If you get cable ties, get the white ones, they glow blue under UV light! Lol

i just realized something as i was thinking aboot it last night the pattern of how yu guys have yer Apogee set up is horizontal where as i am going to have to do the vertical setup to go with my back plate see something like this guy has his set up.




my question is does it matter if its setup like that and can i make it go side to side like you guys i dont remember if the backplate i have is the original or not as i have used 3 Zalman coolers on this computer.

The mounts are perfectly square so it won't matter which direction you have the WB facing. Often the motherboard heatsinks are the deciding factor.
