Thanks! I just finished my build. It is a really nice case.

Actually, the card is 280mm long as stated on official Gigabyte web site.
Those 6mm are (I guess) the length of DVI connector.

Below are the pics from my case, as I tested just after purchase.

Hey man,

Don't get the reference card, as the Gigabyte G1 gaming actually fits in the case (length and height wise).

is it okay to have the fans touching like this or should i remove either the 80mm fans or the 92mm fan on the cpu cooler

post #1234 of 1869
Which Noctua CPU cooler is that? Unless you are doing some serious over clocking I wouldn't bother with the rear CPU cooling fan personally.

Edit: I see it's the Noctua NH U9B SE2.

Just received my new graphics card, which burnt my cheap power supply
I like how this computer case looks without any panel, to see every internal parts of the system. My friends are always interested when they see my pc. I mostly use it to stream music/videos and play games.
Anyway, caused by the power cable's graphics card (like many of us here) , i can't close the front panel.

You must have to clean your PC a lot with it open sided?

That is one thing to be careful of with this case. The manual talks about the maximum length of the GPU but says nothing about the height. If the power connector is on the end of the card you need to add the connector length (something like 20mm maybe?) to the overall length and see if you still come in under the 285mm maximum. Likewise if the power connector is at the top of the card you need to add it onto the height. If possible, also double check if the overall length includes the DVI socket at the back as that can make the card appear a few mm longer which could on paper make it look like it doesn't fit.

I think the card in the photo is the MSI Armor? That card is 140mm high whereas something like the EVGA card is 111mm high. I think for this case with an end power connector I would be looking at GPUs 260mm max. length but up to 140mm high. With a power connector on the top you can use the full 285mm length but I would look around 110-115mm high.

Please bear in mind this is all guesswork but I am currently researching which GPU to buy and although I love the positive points of owning a small case, one negative is you have to double check all the measurements to make sure GPUs fit which unfortunately does mean some cards just aren't suitable for this case for example the new Asus Strix cards with 3 fans are just too long at 298mm.

we have a similar air cooling set-up, I was wondering what GPU did you have before the MSI and what temps during gaming you were reaching assuming the case was closed with panels on?

currently thinking to move from my 750ti since I added a 2nd monitor for gaming and OCing the card has increased my GPU temps too high for my taste (low to mid 80s)

I am thinking about a 970 like I supposed is your model or even a 1070 when prices go bit down

Hi.
First of all i wanted to build a nas, so i had a low cpu with his stock cooler, 4 HDD and no graphics card. All panel closed the cpu was running at 32°, motherboard 25°, and HDD 30°.
I recently added an I5-6500 with a cooler master evo and a GTX 1070 ARMOR and temps were pretty the same without any panel. I overclocked my GTX to the max (clock speed 2050mhz and memory around 4650mhz) and i never exceed 70°.
For the price go for a 1070 , or at least the RX480 from AMD in my opinion.
If you think that temps will be too hight with some overclock, you should buy a founder edition with his "blower fans" that expulse heat out from the case.
