E/ Maybe they will fit with an adapter like this ? http://cdn.overclock.net/d/dd/dd2f1f70_CjwBsStUoAA8IU3.jpeg
Or what do you guys think?

i was fortunate enough to pick up an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW from amazon and install it into my system. The GPU looks beautiful and is very well made. Enough said, the installation process wasn't the smoothest. I am running a PUSH configuration corsair h100i in the front and i was having a hard time placing the GPU into the PCI slot. The card is too tall and was hitting the case when i was trying to install. So I removed the GPU I/O shield, stick the shield in place than put the GPU without any problems (i only screwed on a few screws back to secure its place, and the GPU still started up without having all the screws attached. Next, and the most asked question, the PCI-E power connector. I am not running any sleeved cables and only using the cables came with my corsair HXi and the connector does stick out a bit. With some force pushing down on the side panel window, i was able to close my case leaving with a tiny gap (~1-2mm) at the bottom, however the aesthetic is not what i wished for but at least i works out for now. I went ahead n installed the PULL fans on my radiator to check out the clearance and there are still some clearance between the the GPU and the fan(~1cm or less clearance). Just by looking at it, i will most likely need to remove the fan if i were to remove the GPU. I am looking forward to try the EVGA PCI-E GPU power adapter, since i think it shall fit just right depending on the dimension. If the height sticking out equals to the height it sticks out on a normal 8pin connector, i am pretty sure the adapter face will b barely or slightly touch the side window. On the other side, running another fan behind the GPU will most likely wont work as there are not enough clearance for it. Hope this info will help some of you, and i will try to post pics if i can since i m still really new to the forum. Did i regretting getting the FTW GPU? my answer is HELL NO, from upgrading a reference gtx 600 series GPU and i am also a big fan on the gtx 1080 reference cooler, I will still choose the FTW again!

I measured 93mm from the tip of my reference 980 to the metal where a rad/fans would mount. MSI say's your 1080 gaming x is 10mm longer than mine leaving 83mm for fans and the rad in the front with basically NO clearance

That is awesome! That maybe my favorite 10 series card yet! We'd love to see some pics if you could at some point!

Here r some pics of the GTX 1080 FTW in my system.
First pic was taken right after i installed the GPU, as u can see the power cable sticks out a bit.
Second pic is with the side panel closed, as u can see the cables r smashed to the window. My cables were already smashing against the window with my reference gtx670.
Third pic is to give you guys an idea of clearance if you are running a push/pull configuration.

Yup!

Alright... Does the Gigabyte g1 fit without any mods?

The question is again, where is the heat going from that FTW? Can it escape in that 2mm gap between window?
I would think that the card will just heat up itself more and more in a longer gaming session.

I agree, I am curious about what temps you get, can you test that ferrari ?

It will fit without problems, but no push/pull if you have a rad in front.

Anyone tried the Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix OC ? Does it fit without any mods?
