So in that pic the end of my cards should be right at 10.5" since they are reference design and without the air HSF.
Ahhhh, right. My second 980ti is supposed to be delivered to my house any minute now... I'm going to measure the PCB when I get home to settle this once and for all. The official listed length is 11", but I can't remember off the top of my head if the PCB runs that full length or not. I *think* it does, but I'm not completely sure.

Not to far back someone else asked about mounting a 980ti with a reservoir there, and there was enough clearance for a 60mm res I think. It was tight though. You may have to check quite a few pages back, this thread moves fairly quick.

A 980ti will fit fine because it's only 10.5". The issue is that the Classified and Kingpin are 11".

As far as I can tell (and I'm operating in CM her instead of inches), the Kingpin is supposed to be 28cm with the cooler and 28cm without the cooler. So it seems to be the same.

That said I always take review results with a grain of salt: http://www.hardwareluxx.com/index.php/news/hardware/vgacards/36075-reviewed-evga-geforce-gtx-980-ti-kingpin.html?start=1

I measured last night and it is the advertised 11". I'm thinking about maybe seeing about using a slim 480 rad on bottom in push-only and using all that space above it to mount a horizontal tube res.

I'm doing the actual build in mid-November (already put in for three days off work lol), but I'll probably order the case in the next week or so in order to take measurements for myself. The picture thread is great, but there's no real substitute for holding it with your own two hands.

Teh reservoir thing is not a bad idea, but you won't have to go to thin in the bottom to fit that setup either. Considering the amount of space you may be able to fit a reservoir on top of a push/pull setup (with 25mm fans) on a 60mm thick radiator. I mean the amount of space it really a lot in the bottom part there, only thing that really limits you is if you want to use your HDD cage.

I don't need *all* the hard drive cages, but I will need to mount one in order to continue the auto-backup on my SSD RAID array. I suppose I could always just suspend it with elastic bands in the 5.25" bay...

As for the radiator thickness, I'd like to put a 60 down there in push-pull, but a 30 in push would save me $80 on fans and give me more room to ensure clear air flow. More rad space is good, but a Nemesis Stealth 480 in bottom with an EK XE480 in push-pull up top should be more than enough for two 980tis and a 6700k.

IDK, I need to just order the damn thing and do an actual mockup with different layouts.

Not saying you need a 60mm rad, I'm just saying you can fit one. Heck I'm sure you can even fit a monsta and cram a reservoir in there due to the sheer width of the case. Just because someone mentions that it fits, doesn't mean that you need to fit one. I usually refer to teh max size that can fit in a case since it shows that anything lower will fit. For a cpu and two GPU's then a single 480 would be enough for that matter, but it's always nice to have the option to add more if you want. Hece why I mention the leargest possible usually thumb.gif

I got quite a lot of pics with the 2x 480 rads and push/pull configuration measurements on that page. Also I fit one of the hdd bays while using a 60mm rad in bottom with push pull 38mm thick fans. It is really tight since I had to use a 90 from that end of the radiator but it works.

See the clearance here



With the 38mm fans, if you instead went with a Monsta rad (80mm) and typical 24mm thick fans, they would come out about the same height and you can see there is still a lot of room above that until you hit my bottom GPU. Could mount a horizontal tube res even with this setup.

eh you could still fit a slim fan in there in the front smile.gif
