Since some of you made me feel like crap about my last build, I made a new one... Kinda.
I had a couple things I wanted to change.
1) To upgrade from a 980 to a 1070.
2) A larger case
3) A vertically mounted GPU
I was able to build my friend a new computer and sold him the 980 plus my case. Thus, allowing me to make my upgrades.
The ASUS 1070 is beautiful. RGB is a plus, cause I can match my Riing color. Now I wish I would have done RGB Riing fans. I get better FPS than I did with the 980, but because my monitor is 60Hz I don't actually see the much difference. Only noticeable change was the GPU is at much lower usage. I believe it stays around 60-65% usage. (Per MSI Afterburner)
Mounting the card wasn't hard at all. You can see the back somewhat, I can add a closer photo is others are interested. I just used a dremel to cut out a flap to rest the card on and for the screws to fit through. Then I cut two slots at the bottom so the tabs could add some stability. A hole for the DVI port cause it sticks out, and then the hole for my DisplayPort cable. It isn't beautiful, but I didn't have to buy any other mods. Just the PCI-E extension.
I will find another way to stabilize the far side of the card just for longevity, but honestly it is more secure than I had anticipated. As long as I don't throw the case around it will hold fine, I hope.
The Phanteks case is amazing. I love the build quality and it has so much more room. Easily the best case I have owned. I originally wanted the Luxe, as I like the LED glow on the sides. However, they weren't available through Amazon. It takes at least a month for anything to get here to Italy, while Amazon Prime takes 7-10 days.
I really like the fan control module that came with the case, but I had already soldered mine into the SATA power cables so I just gave it to my friend. It is a lot of wire clutter in the back though. While no one will see it, I know it is there.
I would like to add some Para cord to my cables. I bought some braided wire and it didn't turn out as expected. It'll have to do for now.
Sorry about the room, had a quick 20 min to take pictures and didn't make the bed.
Let me know what you think.
