    Also you will need a USB hub like NZXT so you can plug in your MIO board that controls the AlienFX, Liquid Cooler, and any other USB 2.0 header items. Another thing I need to point is the plastic PCI-E shroud only fits with reference cards. My Strix RTX 2080ti was too thick so I needed to...

    Project Dianoga.
