Thank you and +rep
Like Scorpion said you would probably have to remove the bottom cage as well.

Just wondering, why not get a single 7970?

It's 10 1/2 in long, I will be removing the bottom drive cage anyway, and thanks.

A single 7970 isn't enough for Eyefinity.

just you will have to turn down some of the quality settings.

I just got rid of my single 7970 but it was fine for 5760x1200 in all the games I play.

No its not; I do that with what I have now... a 7950..... Why would I sell my 7950, spend money to side grade to a 7970... and run the same settings I am now, when I can just crossfire and have way more performance?

No single GPU has enough power to run every game I play at high enough settings on triples, not to mention be even remotely future proof. Period. Turn down the settings? I might as well sell my 7950 and downgrade a couple generations if I'm going to do that...

Thanks but no thanks.

Back to talking about cases? Thanks to those who confirmed fit for me.

You know what you're right. I'll sell my 7950, buy a 7970, then sell every component I have, then buy the next model up of everything so I can get maybe 5 more fps at 6000+x1080....

You're brilliant. Brilliant.

Next time I want poor component advice I'll come here... The Fractal case club. Hope you're here.

Tool.

Nowhere did you mention you already had a 7950. He probably assumed you were building a new computer, a fairly safe estimate to make when someone is searching for a new case.

Way to diss an entire group of hundreds of people just because you get a little pissy at one person.

Quit being such a hardass.

Do you play BF3 and such? I don't, thats why a single 7970 worked fine for me. If you're into top end games and want 60fps or so then CFX is a must at eyefinity resolutions. Good luck getting both those cards in there, I know I had put a radiator on the bottom of my Arc Mini so I removed both HDD cages and put an adapter in the 5.25" bay for my SSD and HDD.

Nowhere did I ask for advice on GPU's; I asked if two 10 1/2-11 inch cards would fit in the case.

Nowhere did you say you have a 3570k; but... miraculously, I know...
