So tonight I did it... I actually did it.

Following tools were broken to make this mod.
1. Cutting wheel (pos cracked on me)
2.3 different dremil bits
3. 2 metal drill bits.

Tools used to succeed at this mod
All above broken tools
1 heavy gage steel cutting scissors
1 power drill with Diamond tip bits
Paper
HAMMER!!!
Pen
Time lots of time
Desire to mess shit up
Also a optical drive and a power supply



After your psu and optical drive are confirmed compatible take apart the optical drive and size it up some more



Then give the optical drives top a breast reduction... make sure she's really flat. Now draw the hole you need for your psu cut out this can be done using the psu and paper or just download a template online



Cut it all up and fit it on the psu


Then fit it in there and admire your work.
My main psu I am using for this build is far less long them the sample one so tons of room.




And that's how I relocated my psu on a corsair 800d. Tons more work to go what do you guys think thus far?

Tonight I also removed the lower hdd tray as I need room for watercooling.



Love the cleaned up space think I'll try to find a newer rad :) worse comes to worse these rads will work :D

Also I need fans sponsors and cables... just saying

Thanks, I have wanted to do this mod for some time but could never afford a large enough case. The water cooling in this rig will be great to :)

Still have to paint the mount and fit my ax850 power supply in there.

Thanks, finally figured out what color I will go for my coolant... Blue haha

Now I just need to figure out how I want to mount the lower rads
If I want to remove the Corsair front logo and put a round fan mount there
What Fans I will use as I will need 11 120mm and 3 140mm fans
Also if I should go with LED strips or not. might hit up Ikea and get the color changing ones.
Then I need to logo up the window
Paint the motherboard parts that are yellow and change them to either black, gold or Blue
very tempted to buy this for the front of the case
Then I need to order my waterblocks for my GPU and CPU(Might use a old one I have for the cpu)
Also need to get a pump top kit, going to support Dazmode on that one as he is a cool guy. either 2 of these or

Shes coming together nicely


Modded the 780 Ti to work with a normal CPU block and a Corsair HG10, will get a better block and some nicer fittings for it shortly.

She's nude and blurry


All new Clothes the HG10 fits nice and is super easy to install

Another angle

More blurry Cellphone pix

Installed into the rig, The sag bothers me so I will get a backplate either from Dazmode or make one myself shortly
