The first thing on our "PC Mod Menu" is adding HDMI for VR Goggle port for Brittany, (Mod performed by Jacques)





90 degree 24 pin motherboard connector, https://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gamin...mainboard.html





Jacques starts 1st cut to replace the Headphone / Mic ports in the Corsair 570x with HDMI port.



HDMi port added to the Corsair 570x, now Brittany can use her VR Goggles for new Fallout game release.



The Corsair 570x Crystal doesn't come with vertical GPU mounting option. Bill has installed Mnpctech NCASE Vertical GPU Mounting bracket You can drill four mounting holes in the rear ATX PCI slots. Make sure the motherboard is installed before determining the location the NCASE GPU Mounting Bracket, so you clear it.



Removing the PCI vertical slots in the Corsair 570x after determining mounting location for vertical GPU bracket.



580RX card installed with Mnpctech NCASE vertical bracket to demonstrate look of the vertical GPU orientation in the Corsair 570x Crystal. This will be replaced with ASUS STRIX 1080Ti with EK waterblock.

Progress so far on the chassis. I've modified and removed the distracting hexagon from the front filter screen. I will be creating new filter. I've also made custom aluminum stand-offs for the front bezel, to improve airflow.
