And if so, how much space would there be between the farthest end of the card and the 140x25mm fan. nerdsmiley.png

Justa FYI, the reason why I cant check it myself is my case is packed up for now while Im still parting.

Hey Caesu, I'm at work right now and don't have access to my computer or my pictures, but i personally have a EVGA GTX 670 ftw in my case with an H100i and 120x25mm fans on the inside of my case. My card fit just fine with a little room to spare. I believe that the 680 isn't much bigger if at all than my card unless the ASUS version has a different setup than EVGA. But at any rate, You should be just fine with those fans, especially if you are not running a radiator with them.

Wow, I had no idea the 680 was that much bigger. I figured it would be about the same size since I have to use a 680 waterblock and backplate for my water cooler.

Thanks for the replies all, really strange though with the 10.5 inch card up there looking so close to the Noctua fans? I did check CM's websit which says, max 334mm graphics card. A 25mm fan would make that 309 (334-25mm) remaining, or about 12.17inches from 13.14.

A 10.5 inch card should still have around 1.7 inches to the fans frame? An 11.8 inch card should have around 0.5 inchs remaining as well. Why does it look so much tighter? thinking.gif

Here is one of our forum members set up, so this is where Im confused by the 2 pictures:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1329750/lightbox/post/19230888/id/1276958

Thats a 9.5 inch GTX 670 from EVGA I believe. The rad is 25mm and the fans are an additional 25mm on the inside (50mm total) which would cover neary 2 inches in. It looks ike there is still 1-1.5 inches to spare in between. 9.5 inches + 2 inches + 1.5 inches = 13 inches. Thats roughly 334mm as CM states.

My confusion is why are the two pictures so conflicting. Ugh....

So can a 240 push pull rad be mounted up front with room for a decent sized video card?

I am planning to go with a single titan (267mm) and the new Swiftech 240 AIO rad and add additional fans for push pull. The Swiftech with quad fans is 79mm deep. That would require at least 346mm of internal space.

Can anyone confirm if this much space is available?

Well, I dont think that will work since CM states the maximum card length is 334mm from tip to toe.

Just curious though, your rad, with quad fans. WOuldnt the front two be mounted on the outside and the rad and the last set of fans on the inside? That would mean you have 54mm in the case and 25mm out. In which case you will be good with a smidge of room to spare. 321 out of 334mm.

Not a chance in hell. That card wont fit in the case and theres no way to put a fan and a radiator within the front bezel.

So a 267mm video card will not fit in this case at all with or without a rad in front of it? The case is 423mm deep. That should leave at least 160 mm of clearance. Subtract 25mm for the front fans without a rad and take away another 20mm or so just in case, there still should be nearly 100 of clearance.

Are their measurements inaccurate?


Looking at this picture there looks to be tons of room.

The EVGA GTX670 is 241mm, that is only 26mm less than the Titan.

From this picture, it looks like the fans are already mounted outside of the frame so the interiot would only be the rad and a single fan measured inwards which would be 54mm.

54+267 = 321, so there should be a centimetre or more between the two given they list max length of 334.

That much is correct.
