    Allow me to put the thread back on the rails. I've figured out a way to fix the drooping of my card. Just fix it upright! Why didn't i think of it before.

    That is a very nice build Majesticii! Last year I was contemplating a build using the Node 304, but I had started to drift away from the idea (in favor of another M-ATX build). You may have renewed my interested in it though!

    Thanks! Just keep in mind that you cannot use a modular PSU if you're using a full length card. I found that out the hard way.

    Wait, what? A 160mm modular PSU won't fit with a big graphics card?

    Nope. You get this:

    That's a Be Quiet Straight Power E8 580W, which is specified to be:

    Heh, it's no biggy. I managed to squeeze the cables i didn't need in the detachable frontpanel. So they're not inside the actual case.

    How is it that the modularity is the problem? (can't make anything out of the pic)

    Aww, I wish I could make a mini-ITX build myself. Sound card won't fit. Someone needs to come out with full ATX mini case with no optical drives and the PSU mounted on that spot, could make the case a whole good 20cm shorter. If you also left out the drive cages you could really make one small squeezed perfect sized full ATX case.

    The cables of a non-modular PSU all come out of the same opening, but on a modular PSU you plug them in along the length of the end of the PSU. With a non-modular, you could situate the PSU so that the opening is not obstructed by the GPU, it's impossible to do that with a modular PSU.

    DACs are silly. Perfect solution would be a better case I could fit all my stuff I wanted without wasting space on useless things like opticals or HDD's.

    They are better than having a sound card though

    This. Why exactly are we calling DACs silly? They remove any electrical noise from your computer that you could hear through headphones (or especially high-power studio monitors like mine) and make the sound much clearer. I tried both my motherboard sound outputs as well as Xonar DX... electricity! Then I got the TASCAM US-366... all problems went away.

    Thanks. I think that's mainly due to ITX becoming more popular now with Steamboxes on the horizon. This ITX board doesn't lack any features a fullsized ATX would have. It's arguably better than most ATX boards, though more expensive.

    Apart from extra expansion slots. :>

    DACs are silly (and awesome) because you need to keep them on your desk. I want everything in my pc to be in a same packet.
