UPDATE: LED bridge benchmarks (Heaven) 1. normal, no OC (4667) 2. OC, CPU 4.4, GPU +150mhz core (5007)
The idea was to build 1080 GTX SLI using case as small as possible, also taking noise levels, thermal conditions into account. The setup should drive (yet to be purchased) ASUS PG279Q @144 and 165 hz.
The setup works perfectly with HTC Vive, but of course no SLI is used for any current VR titles.
Still waiting for HB SLI bridge from Nvidia (these are hard to get), for now it uses motherboard bundled one. Will replace this to LED bridge asap. Will do the benchmarks and temp monitoring as soon as I get LED bridge. The other card is not Gigabyte, it's Zotak (same Founders Edition). Works OK.
Note that any of existing non-Founders Edition 1080 GTX cards won't fit the case - the case height headroom for video card is just not enough. Purchased Palit GameRock 1080 GTX initially and was forced to replace it to Founders Edition.
The Corsair 240 case cable management is good enough and case quality is solid. Front panel audio had severe noises though - this was solved by isolating the front panel ground from case with some tape.
Replaced all Corsair H100i fans to Aerocool DS which are silent comparing to bundled Corsair fans. ASUS Gene motherboard has a lot of fan connections, so I connected all the fans to MB and configured the temps/fan speeds in ASUS Ai - works fine.
