Unfortunately the motherboard I was planning to put inside (GAZ-Z77M-D3H) has it's second PCI-E slot crippled at 2.0 @ 4x. Unsuitable for a GPU.

How long is the PSU you have in currently?

I think I'll have a hard time finding a low profile vengeance any other alternatives?Are the fans that comes with the prodigy loud?I plan to reuse the fans at the front and place it at the top?

Do you know what PSU you have? I can google it and work out the clearance space then.

Yep, it's the corsair hx650-v2 semi modular.

corsair vengeance lp
You can also use crucial ballistix, mushkin silverline, corsair dominator if you unscrew the extra heatsinks, etc. I personally don't find most fans loud, so I'll leave that to other people to give their opinions. Lol

That's a 150mm. Mine is 180mm. You say there's about 20mm clearance with your 150mm. Looks like I'm screwed!

No no I meant the GPU is about 20mm difference, gimme 5 I'll make something up in paint.



Ok so here it is, It's not to scale but your GPU is shorter than mine by 23mm, but your PSU is higher so they switch as opposed to mine if that makes any sense? It'll be tight without a doubt but there is enough clearance to show that it's possible thumb.gif

Ah, I get what you mean. 20mm away from that entire section of the case. Might just be a tight squeeze for the GPU power connectors then.

Edit: And I've just realised the power connectors are on the top of the GPU and not on the side. Things might all be peachy!
