Will these graphics cards fit in my case?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't know whether this should be in graphics cards or cases, I'll go with graphics cards though. I was having a bit of a problem finding anything on graphics card clearance for my case, an NZXT Guardian 921 RB mid tower. In the next couple days when I sell my GTS 450, I'm either buying-

1: A GTX 480

2: A GTX 570

3: A Radeon HD 5850

4: I think this one is too big, but a 5870 if it would fit in there. I don't believe it would though.

I know for a fact the 5850 would fit, but I'm not sure how big 570s are. The 480 is 10.5", and like I said, I'm having trouble finding any info on the clearance for graphics cards for my specific case.

If anyone knows if these would fit, or has experience with this case, it would be nice to know, since I need to decide in the next week.

GTX 480: 10.5".
GTX 570: 9".
5850: 9.5".
5870: 10.75".

You'll have to take a ruler and measure your clearance yourself. I don't think many will have this case. A newegg review did say that a 5970 would fit, so I assume all of the cards will fit.

Why the heck are you asking us? Get a measuring tape and measure it yourself.

From the NZXT website:
Quote:
The NZXT Guardian 921 RB has a video card clearance of 265MM. Tags: GPU length graphics

That is ~10.4 inches. Shoot for less than 10 inches to allow breathing room and cable space.

A hard drive cage is in the way, so i cant get a tape measure in there. Its not removable either. From what i could make out with the tape measure from the side of the hdd cage, its 10 +/- 1 inch.

I figured I would ask incase someone has worked with the case before or happened to find the graphics card clearance for it. If my measurements are off by 1/4 inch, I'll be stuck with a card that wont fit in my case.

I just quoted to you the exact sizing via the NZXT website, you don't need to use a tape measure biggrin.gif

the GTX 570 and the 5850 will fit, but in my opinion, any graphics card can fit in any case with some creative thinking, and one of these

450
