    Hi, Guys, I will start this thread. I would like to see photos of how others are putting their F16v3 together. This is my setup which took me about 6 hours to build so far. I am yet to run the pigtails which I will do over the next week or two. The cabinet is lockable and will need an air vent for airflow.

    @hammo131 - watch out for that red expansion board, I don't believe that will work. From what I hear, it might be possible to use with a slight mod - removing one of the pins but I've not seen those specific instructions be released yet.

    Ok, looking at their manual it should work, but I have never used a falcon before. If that is the case, I should have got the 2nd board from you...

    Heat is thy enemy !
    Need more than "a" vent
    With 6 x PSU I would be looking at Fan assisted cross flow ventilation
    Air sucked in, Hot air blown out.
