CM 690 2 advanced question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I was just wondering if the MSI GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Lightning (305mm) is at all possible to fit in the case? I do know they recommend nothing more then 304mm, but its 1mm is it just not possible? I mean will it be scrached?

I dont have the removable drive case left in my case so if I were to put the card in my second PCI-E slot this wouldn't even be an issue right?


All the best!

My HD 5970 is 30.5cm and fits fine in my CM690 Std. However, if the power cables plug in the back your out of luck (although unlikely these days), there won't be enough room for the connectors.
All the info you could ever need on the CM690, all versions can be found here:

i have a gtx 560 and it has much space left before touching the hdd tray. but i am sure u can work something out to be able to fit that extra mm.remember u have to attach the cables from the power supply to the gpu so that will take some cm's too. in that case be prepared to take out your dremel
