There will always be GPUs available both shorter and longer than the 10.5 - 10.9" or so max one could have and still fit most tube res's on the bracket. If you buy a longer card than will fit with the res you have on the bracket, then you'll have to move the res to another location like the one on the back panel of the case Phanteks provided, use a different res, perhaps a bay res, or maybe no res at all. These are all the same type issues one would face when using just about any case.

Im pretty shure i tried both with and without the molex plugged to it. but it works perfectly with my other computer so i will simple buy a new mobo or something ..

Hey guys,

I recently just got my 780 Ti Classified and I had to take out the reservoir bracket to get it in.

I bought the EK X3 150 res and I'm not sure where I could put it.

Here is what my loop planned to be just in case the res bracket wouldn't be able to fit.



However, my GPU does block the top part of the grill where I was going to mount the res. Maybe I could put it in the 5.25" bays? They are unused and I don't think I'll add anything there since I won't use an optical drive or any fan controllers.

Any other good places? I appreciate the input.

The top card won't conflict with the mounting panel -- what you're seeing in that picture is the plastic faceplate that can be used *optionally* to cover the panel if you're NOT using it as a reservoir mount. The actual mounting panel is notched, any gpu will fit in the top slot.

If you run multiple cards, though, the 3rd or 4th slot may conflict with the un-notched portion of the reservoir mount at the bottom, it leaves 10.1" clearance. Many/most of us have had to mod the panel with a dremel to allow enough space for today's typically 10.5" or 11" cards.

The 780 Ti Classy is 11", I believe. It wouldn't fit with the plastic cover removed and the reservoir bracket in. I was thinking of possibly modding the bracket but I have no skill or knowledge with how to do that. Other than that, I would have to find a different place to mount it.

@Kurodragon no bottom rad? If you add that you could mount your res horizontally with a 140/120 mm fan to res mount converter rolleyes.gif

Ummm, not every card is shorter than the 277mm (10.9") clearance the res bracket has with the plastic cover removed. Most are, but there are definitely some that are longer than that.

For example, the EVGA GTX 780 Ti Dual Classified, which is what I think Kurodragon is referring to, is 279 mm according to this techpowerup review.. It also looks to be a wider-than-normal card, so it actually may interfere with mounting a res on the back panel also, which is what Kurodragon is saying.

That's strange. What exact card do you have (is it the EVGA GTX 780 Ti Dual Classified)? How long & how wide is it?
EK says that EK-RES X3 150 is 60mm wide. Perhaps you can mount it to the back panel to the right of the mobo with the res bracket removed? There should be enough space provided you can find places to secure the mounts.

Oops, my bad, I never measured exactly how much clearance the notched portion allowed, I just assumed it was at least 11" since many cards are that length.

If Phanteks really did leave only 10.9" that's just a plain stupid mistake.

Yeah that's the card I have. I don't have anything to measure it, but Newegg lists the card as 11" , 279mm.

To the right of the mobo is a good idea actually, I didn't think of that.

Nope, no bottom rad right now. Just a 420 top.


Thanks for the input!

What is the length of the Classy's PCB ? IIRC, the card w/ air cooler is 11" .... if ya taking the air cooler off and adding a WB, as your sketch indicates, it will fit w/o hitting the res bracket if ya can save 0.1" .... If ya can save 0.4", the EK res will fit.

I saw bottom pics of the Kingpin edition and that PCB appears full length (same as cooler)

here's my test fit (just for laughs)



But this is what I was gonna do if the 780's didn't fit using two EKRes 3 150mm




My other idea was to mount horizontally above the lower rad
