Ah. Looking at the pics closer it seems the power connectors are inset some, whereas mine aren't.

Let me know if it fits in the case.

From what others have said that own the same card. it fits. Plus, I am doing a case mod so it'll fit no matter what lol

I have the GTX 980 XTREME and it fits with room to spare. Gigabyte have the specs at 121mm and with the power cables it still has about 5mm clearance from the window to the cables.

The GTX 980Ti XTREME is at 134mm which means it is 13mm wider. With the recessed power connectors they shouldn't be the problem. I would say it would fit but can be sure.

Some of the cards have trouble where the latch clamps the card at the back.

Good luck and let us know if it fits. I would have preferred the Ti but had to be sure it would fit so went the 980.

I have the gtx 970 xtreme & it fits with a pull/push config at the front. Approx 2mm in between the fan & 970 left.
Have yet to learn how to use the little black clamp latch thing that the case comes with.

Does it somehow help the card stay up or something? how do i use it? it's so far from the gpu ..

The latch clamp thing I was referring to is the one that holds the card bracket in place at the rear instead of screws.

Is there anything that helps the gpu stay up a bit other then screws? I've seen it in a couple air 240 video's.

Not really. And it doesn't even use screws to help the card in place. It just uses the latch clamp.

I saw a picture over on PCPartPicker of a build where the guy built a support strut attached to the GPU and the fan below it to help keep the GPU from sagging.

I always go for cards with a backplate - never had a problem with them sagging.

Today i started to redo my brother’s build.
He just wanted me to clean the water loop, but, as we can see, there is much more to do.




He used two VERY diferent types of soft tube: Primochill Pro LRT (the dirty ones) and Primochill Advanced LRT (clear ones).
The plasticize was all over the blocks, fittings and tubes, so I have to clean everything first.





My son gave me a little help cleaning the rads (i used his baby shampoo biggrin.giflmaosmiley.gif )





I’ll also improve the cable management.
The case dust filters will need to be cleaned as well.




More updates tomorrow…

Here's a pic of my new build:
i7 5820k
GTX 780ti
16GB RAM

sadly the CPU block top got a crack and leaked all over the graphics card. (you can even see a small puddle on the backplate that i didn't notice yet at the time of taking the photo biggrin.gif)
I'm gonna post a few more pics and detailed specs when i get a new top delivered.
