This is why we made the HAF Xb so big.

As far as I know if the fans are mounted inside that should leave 12.16 inches left. a 25mm rad + 25mm fan would leave around 11 inches left for the card. With no interior fan/rad installation. You have 13.1 inches from top to bottom.

So big?

 

Only Mr.Bigs is big. j/k

 

Okay the size is subjective. biggrin.gif

 

I want to see what the later revisions or new model case(s) (I hope) based on the same type form factor will be like as you see most people are already using this model case for their primary rig.

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.

I'm new here (just got my build together) but if you go with the 4GB ASUS 680 it's just as short as their 670s. Here's mine:



The picture is kinda difficult to see (I'll be getting better pictures later in the new morning sun) but it does show I have enough room to route my USB 3 cable next to the card. Without a 30mm (ish) Corsair radiator there you'll have the same space I do, just shifted over towards the front of the chassis by about an inch.

Good looking rig there.
post #1237 of 10488
Thanks you too... Still working on it but here it is with the lights off and a LONG shutter time on the camera (hence the blur).

Looks awesome. I love those Corsair fans. I think its safe to say, with a case fan mounted on the inside, you can have a 11" video card no problem. Up to 12 inches, but a tight fit. so 11" optimum with a case fan on the inside. 11 inches maximum if you have a 25mm rad + 25 mm case fan.

So maybe just to close the topic of how long of a video card can fit, and anyone correct me if you feel this is wrong:

No fan mounted on the inside: 13" max (12 inch optimum, leaves some space behind the card)
1 fan (25mm) mounted on the inside: 12 inch max (11 inch optimum, leaves some space behind the card)
1 fan (25mm) + rad (25mm) mounted on the inside: 11 inch max (10 inch optimum, leaves some space behind the card)


So really CM maximum - 1 inch for some slack behind the card.

I got an asus gtx 570 which is 11.5" and there is no space left for a push pull config with the h100i...if it was like 3mm shorter it would fit...

Well that is 292mm so in theory a 267mm card should fit without issue.

Thanks for providing the measurements.
