Have you ever thought about buying the biggest & baddest motherboard on the planet, but didn’t know what to put it in? The EVGA Classified SR-2 motherboard is a one of a kind HPTX motherboard, but has one major flaw –its size! When most other gamers/modders have the motherboard sitting on a bare desk or have it in an extremely huge cube case, you can have yours installed in one of the worlds best looking and functioning cases. Introducing the Corsair Obsidian 700D modified with the Mountain Mods HPTX SR-2 motherboard tray brought to you by the experts at Performance-PCs.com!

The modification includes the following:

*Custom cut back plate to fit the 10 I/O slots required for the EVGA Classified SR-2 HPTX Motherboard to install a mind-blowing 4-Way SLI setup.

*Includes a professionally mounted Mountain Mods specifically designed EVGA Classified SR-2 HPTX Motherboard tray in black wrinkle finish.

*Motherboard tray has a cut-out backplate to be able to mount both CPU mounting backplates without removal of the motherboard and comes with two security flanges, also in black wrinkle, for extra riggidity for the motherboard.

*The modified case keeps the same functionality of the original Corsair Obsidian 700D which includes tool free operation and removal of the side panel for easy access to all of your valuable internals.

*The Mountain Mods Motherboard tray also features support for other motherboards sizes including ATX, XL-ATX and E-ATX.

*The Modified Corsair 700D supports 10 I/O slots so other popular 4-Way SLI motherboards, like the EVGA 4-Way Classified, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD9, and ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer are supported as well.

*Corsair Obsidian 800D soon to be available with SR-2 mod!

Designed for Years of Performance

The Obsidian Series? 700D is built to last through years of motherboard, power, memory, cooling, and component upgrades.

The steel structure has a matte black coating both inside out and is finished with a brushed aluminum faceplate for a professional look that?s both serious and awe-inspiring.

Three Isolated Cooling Zones

The power supply compartment, main compartment and the SATA bays each have dedicated cooling subsystems to prevent heat buildup.

A dust-filtered 140mm fan draws in cold air at the bottom of the case and exhausts it at the rear and top. This clever design forces fresh air directly over the graphics card and CPU. The hard drive / SSD bays are cooled by a separate 140mm fan which vents from the case via a sealed chamber and prevents the heat generated by the drives from entering the main compartment. The power supply compartment has its own dedicated intake and exhaust, also isolated from the main compartment.

Need even more cooling performance? The Obsidian Series 700D has pre-drilled support for top-mounted single, dual, and triple radiators, or up to three additional 120mm fans.

Advanced Features for Extreme Flexibility

Six drive bays with clever snap-in trays accommodate both 3.5? and 2.5? drives with no adapter necessary. A unique cable routing system virtually eliminates cable clutter that can impede airflow. The tool-free design allows for easy entry, easy access, and quick installation of 5.25? drives.
