I got my EVGA 1070 FTW to fit using these cables: http://www.moddiy.com/products/Special-Mini-Low%252dProfile-8%252dPin-to-8%252dPin-PCI%252dE-Extension-Cable-%2815cm%29.html

The door still bulges very slightly near the bottom.

In short, yes. In long, it took like 20mins of jogging and pulling back the stupid clamp which by the way is kinda weak on this card because its a biggie. Also there is a little more flexing on the window than id like but I can live with it until the power link comes out and I also have a 1070 ftw so...win? XD

How the hell did you guys get the 1070 FTW to fit? Tried for about a half hour. Did you pull the motherboard out first?

It will fit, use your thumb and pull out on the metal lip so the corner of the board (near i/o) slides in, literally needs 1mm of pull to allow the card to pop in.

I'm assuming metal lip of the motherboard?

whaaa? No. Of the case, the metal piece that's preventing the card from sliding in. Use your thumb and hold it back while you slide the card in

I had to detach the plate on my 1070 to get it in. I held it in place and screwed it back on inside the case.

Yeaaaaa... I got it to fit but it looks way too tacky sticking out of the case window like that. Just going to end up getting another Gigabyte G1 since I know that fit perfectly.

you need low pro pci-e cables so the side panel fits flush, ebay $10

Hey ya'll. I'm new here. Is there any chance I can get a comprehensive list of cards that fit with 0 problems, easy mods, and don't fit at all? There isn't much data out yet about the new cards. I'm only interested in 470/480 and 1060s. Preferably, cards with no problem at all.

I own everything but the GPU. This build is for my GF and she is dead set on this case, and I don't blame her. The 240 is GORGEOUS.

Thanks in advanced guys!
