My System Specs

Question Orientation of pcie pls Help

So I may have jumped the gun on my storage plans and did a derp. I got my Intel 280gb Optane U.2 my Intel 750 1.2tb pcie ssd/Titan X with Arctic Cooler Extreme 5.

Not sure how I'll connect all these with the apex can I use riser cables and maybe slot my gpu were the itx system would go or maybe my U.2 Pcie card for Optane.

Optane Pcie

Time to do some watercooling on that GPU instead

That GPU is taking up basically all your PCIE slots except the very top one? I would say try to get that onto a riser cable instead and mount it elsewhere in the case. It's way too big to have on the motherboard directly IMO.

You could look at these mounts too: https://mnpctech.com/vertical-gpu-vi...llation-mount/

Yeah I got a riser inc was wondering should try get the GPU into the vertical slots in back or the pcie ssds. I do have a Vega Fe card I could fit in top. The Titan won't because backplate is too tall hits the ram above.
