Will an AXP II fit ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's my 2 GTX 480s. I was thinking of purchasing an AXP II but wasn't sure of the space I have.

What do you think? Will I be able to fit 2 of them?

GTX480 with AXPII will occupy 3-slot space.

I reckon, they will likely to fit in. However, the thermal numbers will not be pretty. More accurately put, the full cooling potential of the AXP II will not materialize because there is not enough space for air movement. I would personally not do this.

To enhance existing cooling, I recommend putting a 120mm fan (green rectangle in pic) directly in front of the 2 cards to force more air into the gap.

See pic below.

Does the NZXT Phantom have a side intake fans? You "might" be ok with having the AXP if you got fans blowing directly on them. I had 2 x 480's with AXP's in a 800D. My temps were pretty good when i had 2 x 120mm side intake fans modded on the case.
