How does the top GPU perform under heavy load? I'm curious, as I am looking to builld something similar to what you have. Does it Throttle or go to "worrying" Tempratures?

By the way, nice build. Looks really clean smile.gif

I have yet to fully test or even install windows on it as I'm waiting for my new monitor and HB bridge to arrive tomorrow.

All fans are intake except for the rear fans since it'll laying horizontal (main reason I got the case) and the GPU's will push most of the hot air out.

Shouldn't have any issues with the top card besides the usual 5-8c temp difference on close slot to slot blower cards.

Will be aiming for a sustained 2GHZ+ on both cards under 4K load (60%-70% fan)

I'll post some results tomorrow night. thumb.gif

Ok so I have been going crazy over figuring out what 1070/1080 cards can 'fit' in this case.
For me, 'fit' means the side panel goes on even though the power cables may touch the window.

So, now we have my definition of what 'fitting' means, I can tell you what I have found from my internet trawling.

It seems as though as long as the GPU and it's power connectors are 145mm and smaller, it'll 'fit'.
Albeit with the window slightly touching on the power cables.

The last poster in this thread also has come to this conclusion.

There's photographic proof that the EVGA FTW card 'fits' but with the cables highly squished up against the window.
This is 137.74mm plus 9mm for the power cables.

The MSI 980 Gaming is in a similar position with photos showing it 'fits' with very squished up power cables. That card is 140mm according to MSI.
I would not recommend doing this though as it looks like it is under a lot of stress with the +9mm connectors hurting it 'fit'.

And as we have seen multiple times here the ASUS Strix 'fits' with not too much hassle, maybe some touching too.
That's a 134mm card.

Now to my point. I have been looking at the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming card and it is huge. 140mm according to Gigabyte.
The good news is that the 8pin power connectors are so far down there's at least 25mm of space to plug in and bend the cables.

My hypothesis is that the Gigabyte card will just manage to squeeze in and 'fit', with the plastic shroud very close to or touching the window,
with the power cables not being a factor in the 'fitting' equation.

Another concern would be the hot air and heatsink being basically touching the window,
but I believe the plastic shroud gives about 5mm at least of space between the window and the fins for airflow.

This is all hypothetical though, just judging from pictures and anecdotes from around the internet.
Would love to prove it but alas I must wait another month before I can get my hands on this amazing case and GPU.

Would love to hear some thoughts on all of this. Am I crazy or can this maybe just work?

According to the specs sheet it won't fit i think it was the same problem with most ftw cards but the evga 1070 superclock does fit

I just joined ocn and wanted to show my build.

The cooler is going to be replaced as it is touching the top.

I'll fill out the club form when I can as I am on mobile right now.sorry for the bad image quality
