vtx3d 7870 black in antec 300

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
just wondering if anyone else has tried to put this graphics card:

http://www.dabs.com/products/best-value-vtx3d-amd-radeon-7870-hd-2gb-pci-express-3-0-hdmi-black-8G9Q.html?q=vtx3d&src=16

in this case:

http://store.antec.com/Product/benclosure/three-hundred/0-761345-45003-4.aspx

it SHOULD fit according to specs, it says that max card length is 11" for the case, i can't find a definitive length for the card anywhere though, i read somewhere that it was 266mm so should just squeeze in, if anyone has the card could they measure it for me? or better yet does anyone have this exact combination and can confirm it fits?

any way you can contact the site and see if they can measure it? also... Best Value? sounds like a wal-mart brand. $200USD would get a name brand card and probably better support for drivers etc... also make sure it's a tahiti and not a pitcairn GPU.

vtx3d are a fairly big brand as far as im aware? The "best value" tag is nothing to do with the card itself, the card is called a VTX3d 7870 black. It is a tahiti chip.

their is a techpowerup review on the card (amongst other sites)

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/VTX3D/Radeon_HD_7870_XT_Black/

it suggests it will fit its just a tight squeeze! was more wondering if anyone had this card and could measure it for me, or if they had this exact setup (card and case) and confirm it fits.

my bad, they put it as brand under item details...

Don't know if the 300 has hard drive cages like the 900, but those can be modded/removed to gain extra room.

only other thing I can suggest is maybe tracking down some guys on OCN and try PM'ing them and see if they will measure it, if you send them link to this post then you should still be able to leave them rep for their trouble.
