1070 and Antec 1200 clearance

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Building a new computer for a friend and using an antec 1200 case and a evga 1070. It seems to me like the clearance is off. When I push the GPU into the motherboard until it snaps in place, the end at the case where the DP ports and stuff are sits at an angle. As if they aren't deep enough to clear the screws

I think I get what you mean, a picture would help though.
I've had a similar situation before, but once you put that anchor screw onto the I/O bracket it should straighten up enough.
Nothing to worry about unless you forced it into place and broke something (which I'm doubting is the case).

Yeah like spinFX said, nothing to really worry about. I've seen it many times when I did computer builds with dual-GPUs that are long. It wont really have an impact on the use of the card.

As long as you can fit the display cables into the display ports fine then it should be okay provided you can screw the PCI-E metal bracket of the graphics card in.

Sorry for the crappy photos, took them with my Note 5. Anyway, the top3 you can see the screws don't line up right. The bottom 2 show the angle. If I unscrew the MB, it will fit because it lifts it off the stand offs. It's like the plate on the GPU is too short or something.

Have you tried one of the lower x16 slots to see if it's the same there? Just to see if it's "uniformly off" so to speak. I understand it may look funny but it shouldn't affect performance at all and would maybe give you better peace of mind if it did fit more squarely. If they're off all the same I would just push the card in place until it snaps the tab in and then rotate screwing in the screws a turn or so each to snug it up as much as possible. I once had a card that the bottom would tighten down all the way but wanted to pull the top plate screw bar away from the back of case. (If that makes sense). In the end I settled for 2 semi tight screws, with the bottom being just a big more snug, never had an issue with it.

Ya, was thinking that, will try it tomorrow when I have more light. I didn't bother with the other PCI-E slots because they are 3.0 x16.
