The G10 bracket looks to be triple slot? I can't remember exact measurements from when I used to own one.

Ahh no the G10 is only dual slot, you can mount a single rad on the back fan and use the top fan slots for a cpu watercooler for example.

Do you have any photos of your G10 properly installed?

Some photos that I've seen on the internet seem to be between 2.5 slots to 3 slots, but I would like confirmation..



I might have to figure out a way to mod the case to accommodate the part of the bracket where the NZXT logo extends down..

Oh no I don't own a G10 but I've seen around the web and seen reviews and as far I as I can tell it's dual slot, the Evolv ITX has some extra room below the slots anyways so if it overhangs a little it should still fit fine.

Edit: I checked it's dimensions on NZXT's site and measured it against my pcie slots, yes it's dual slot. slightly under dual slot actually.

I've installed it when I had my evga hadron (dual slot) and it fit fine! This is the best picture I have. Also don't mind the rads just hanging there, this was shortly before I upgraded to my NCASE

Here are some pictures I just took. The G10 bracket makes my wife's R9 290 just over 2 inches in height measured from the backplate to the bottom point of the bracket.



The main problem isn't so much the bracket but the 92mm fan everyone puts on to cool the VRMs. You can see here that the 92mm fan is just passing what would be the 3rd PCI-E slot on this X58A-UD5.



Just for reference, here's a picture of the motherboard.



The only way you'll get it into 2 slots is to use other methods of mounting like the Pulse Modding bracket or zip ties and then either just live with passively cooling the VRMs (making sure you have sufficient overall airflow) or get a spot cooler to fit there somewhere.

^ I would argue that as it worked fine in my hadron air. Granted the fan had very little room to suck air for the vrm's, but I had no issues

Well, you do have a little bit of space below the slots that the G10 and 92mm fan can squeeze into.
