    Oh ok.. so sound card is still horizontal and sits below the vertical mount in the bottom slot?
    That's what i'm HOPING to do in the O11D...
    or mount the Vive wireless card vertical as well....
    or go back to horizontal...
    have to get the mobo/ram/cpu yet though

    Yes that's right. All seems to just fit.

    Your board (and mine) have the S1220A which is considered pretty good onboard these days. I was using my FiiO BTR3K as a USB DAC, probably not on the same level as an X-Fi Titanium, but switched to onboard as it sounded fuller - if that makes sense. Did you make sure to max out the audio "format" in the settings app? I've set mine to "32 bit, 192000 Hz (Studio quality)".

    riser cable plugged into 3rd PCIe slot, with Vive wireless card in PCIe #1
    Not sure what impact this would have on the speed of a decent GPU, but should be ok for this one at least :)
    Just a practice run for when i get a decent GPU again though
    I may be able to do it differently if i can use the new upright mount from Lian Li in the non EVO case.. ??
