The 50mm thickness should be fine, the internal length of the case is 290mm and that is from the flat part of the IO plate rahter than the end of the tab which is conventionally screwed to the case. I don't know if ASUS or yourself included that in the overall length so it may or may not fit.

Ah, darn. Well then, guess it will probably be 960's or 970's going into the R1.0 then, since most of those are standard height. Probably 970's simply because I'm nuts and it's going to technically be my audio and djing rig that Folds on the side - that and you can get full coverage blocks for the 970's ^_^
I suspect the 980 Classified suffers the same "problem" that the 780 and 780 Ti Classifieds did, that being they're a little over an inch taller than reference. But they're so sexy, not to mention potent.
I've revised the R1.0 drawings and the spec adding 10mm width which should be enough for all the flagship cards with a waterblock. Definitely fine for all of the Classifieds with an EK block.

The GPU depth should be just the same as the as CPU cooler height as mads said. There is a little safety in that measurement just because manufacturers aren't specific in how they measure GPU or CPU height. The M1.0 is 12mm wider than an S2.0 and all of that extra width is in the front.
