post #16671 of 23553
Hi guys, I'm getting ready to buy a 3930k, I'm going to buy a new mobo, ram and CPU. I'm doing this to go 3 way SLI. Now my question is would I need to change my case (HAF932) in order to fit in the cards? Do I have enough space? -anyone know? -Thanks

Your not going to have tons of room, But it should fit. I had 3 HD 5770's in this case before my HD 6990+6970 I have now, and they fit fine. I have plenty of room to add another 6970 in my HAF 932 if I wanted to.

The HAF X has a lot less dust than the 932

Due to persistent chipping and flaking paint on my SS FT02 I had to RMA this case. Lucky for me I had purchased a HAF X recently in anticipation for Sandy Bridge E. The HAF X is one of the later revisions, which has the internal USB mobo connector.


The install went great, until the time came to fit the GPU's (MSI GTX580 XE). Despite double-checking that the mobo was correctly seated, my GPU was a good way off being able to be screwed down, forcing the card down just made the PCI connector rise up at the back, leaving the card not properly connected. My GPU fitted perfectly without issue in my FT02. Removing and re-fitting the mobo resulted in the same problem - the card wasn't going to fit without applying unreasonable force or bending the graphic card's bracket down with needle-nosed pliers.


I spoke to my retailer who advised me to bring the case down to his shop to have a look. To my surprise both ATX boards he tried together with a GTX570 (EVGA) fitted without issue. This has left me a little puzzled, as I was sure the problem was with the case. I have read several posts about alignment probelms. However, the fact that two ATX boards together with a GTX570 fitted perfectly, suggests the problem is with my mobo/GPU combination. PCI-E_Slots.jpg 430k .jpg file


I'm sure that there must be members of the club running my combination of hardware, so I would appreciate any suggestions as to what the issue may be.

Try mainboard glass washers bro. I had to put two of them under each standoff to get good alignment with this 5770. Soon as I did that everything fit and lined up correctly. Even the GPU. thumb.gif

@ Ceadderman,

Thanks for the fast response. I must admit I've not seen these "glass washers" on sale and couldn't find them on my retailer's on-line store. Do you happen to have a link or picture of exactly what you're referring to? What thickness do they need to be? Thanks.


Edit:: Found your earlier posts on the subject of motherboard washers. Will try and track some down, but will probably have to order them from the UK. My local stores don't list them
