Oh ok, so the pcie toolless holder wont stop me from installing the card and it wont hit the top of the holder? Its quite hard to line the card up under the toolless holders as you have to hold the tabs then put the card in

You also cant just remove the holder as there are no screws on the case its pins for the holder, so yes i want to be sure i dont spend $400 on a card that wont fit

Screw the holder, just break/mod the damn thing off and if you want something to hold up the card make one that will allow you to fit the cards you buy, it shouldn't be too hard to do so. tongue.gif

There is the case
I just sold mine not even a few weeks ago. I loved that case. I have a Gigabyte 280x and it fit fine inside it without any issues.

Yeah, by the looks of that case everything should fit fine I also don't see a shroud attached to it anywhere so I don't see the issue of it not being detachable. o_O

Did you still use the tooless pci holder? If you removed it there would be no way to screw down the card to the case, yes the gigabyte is alot lower than say the xfx brand

Yes, I used the toolless mounting system. Did you remove yours? That was the easiest gpu mounting I've ever seen in a case before. If you removed it, you should just be able to use 2 case thumb screws to tighten the card. I've done that before as well.
