Description

Sooooo, squeezing the MSI R9 390 into the Core v1 meant cutting away lots of the metal from the case. Literally bled for this build. If you are dead set on this video card it's probably best to find another case, even after cutting much of the left side of the case away the clearances are tiny, less than 1mm for the fans. The fan shroud on the card also pushes the left side of the case out about a half of 1mm.

Proud of my tiny powerhouse!

Imagine how that would've gone if you got a Sapphire R9 390.

if i was u i wouldn't have gone through the effort of cutting the case and just bought something like a gtx 970. gr8 build though

I'm gambling on the longevity of the 512 bit memory access and 8GB, but yeah, almost any 970 would have fit normally.

Fan splitter cord? The case fans at the back are just directly into 4 pin power connectors off the PSU. The Corsair AIO used both CPU and SYS fan connections on the motherboard.

The Silenx fans had 3 pin motherboard fan power connectors and 4 standard molex power connectors on them already.

Or you could get a case that fits it instead of cutting your case and yourself. LOL.

But good ingenuity and innovation to make it work. So that was not giving up easily. Finding a solution and making it work. That takes some doing. You should be proud of that part.

Take the ring off when building. Static electricity and risk to your parts.

Do you have heat building up @ the end of the video card in the area above the power switch? My card extends into the bezel without cutting, but I was shocked by how warm it got there. GPU temps are good so I'm not too worried about it, but it's hard to ignore.

I literally just bought this case hoping to cool down the MSI R9 390! well... i don't know if im going to send it back and go with something else or.... stop buying MSI cards that are poorly designed as i also had to squeeze it into the Silverstone RVZ02.... smdh...
