Please may I ask some RVZ01 owners for help with GPU selection? I've chosen the RX 480 for my first build, but would like to be doubly-sure I'm choosing one that actually fits and get some recommendations.
The case manual states that the max length is 330mm, max width with bracket is 131.6mm (without is 149.3mm) and total thickness limitation is 68mm. Just from having a quick look on PCPartPicker, I've seen the following thus far. I've taken the GPU dimensions from the manufacturer's websites and included them here, from narrowest to widest.
Gigabyte Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8G L:232mm W:116mm D:40mm
XFX Radeon RX 480 8GB GTR L:280mm W:124mm D:40mm
MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB ARMOR 8G OC L:269mm W:125mm D:38mm
PowerColor Red Devil Radeon™ RX 480 8GB GDDR5 L:310mm W:128mm D:38mm
ASUS ROG Strix RX480 8G or 08G L:298mm W:134mm D:40mm
MSI RADEON RX480 GAMING X 8G L:276mm W:140mm D:42mm
I am left little uncertain by an earlier post I read when searching the thread for anyone else using the RX 480 though...

The card I have installed now has a card height of 4.38" and fits just fine.
Which would then make the Gigabyte my only viable choice at just 1mm over his recommendation? I'm a first time builder, so do GPUs always have the plug in the same location? Surely Silverstone would have taken that into account when publishing max dimensions...? Is there any way around a protruding plug, like some sort of right-angled adapter or some such?

Hi again, Broadmonkey. May I ask which RX 480 you selected for your build? Thanks
