Looking over various motherboards it does appear that maybe a super-long card could partially rest inside the 5.25 inch bays. Any thoughts on this or am I just crazy?
You're not crazy. I thought about this but since this graphics card has its power plugs on the side instead of the back it'd be hard to give it power in that orientation.

I assume you'll be cutting the top ones off? Primary video card slot/s are oriented as the higher expansion ports.

PCI-E 16x Extension Cable, it would certainly help with the desired positioning and might prevent any unwanted cutting been performed.





It'd work but you'd still need to find space for it. Doesn't seem like getting that would make it much easier.

Dimensions:

9.5x5 inches = 5850
To my understanding the Sapphire Vapor-X 5870 which isn't yet released is shorter than the standard 5870 design.

Tuniq Tower 120:
# Heatsink dimensions: 131mm (W) x 108mm (H) x 153mm (D);
# Fan dimensions: 120mm (W) x 120mm (H) x 25mm (D);

Any Cooler under 165mm will be fine
It will fit but you can't have a fan on the top of the left side panel.

I think you could get it into the drive bays with a water block.

Then you have the challenge of putting a water cooling system in there!
Someone here has done it. And if the PCB REALLY is 10.5" then yes, it'll fit. I'm pretty sure the storm scout can accommodate 27cm of video card.

I don't know if this has been posted or will even work properly. But DVD/Blu-ray drive stealthing.

Drive Stealthing Made Simple


Anyone have an idea on how to stealth drives? If not i will try doing this way with a spare 5.25" cover that came with the case.

You just do it how they do it in the guide. Though the 5.25" drives need to be placed in a certain spot to close so following that guide would just make your drive looks stupid since there would be a metal mesh like 5mm more protruding than any other covers. So you'd need to remove the actual optical drive's covers to make it work well in this case...or just not fasten your optical drive.

I know is seems a little improper but i was thinking just not fasten the drive in.

The drives are extremely tight on this case so it shouldn't move.

Yep. When I first installed my components I thought the metal "screws" on the toolless 5.25" bay were out because it was so hard to get my drive in.

Yeah i had same exact problem. Took me like 15 minutes to install my DVD drive cause i was trying to be very gentle to make sure i didnt scratch any of the paint.

Which btw the paint on this case is great i think it may even me auto mobile paint. It is very very hard to scratch it. Love the fact that the inside is painted black!

On my old HAF 932 machine, the paint was just awful. Theres about four blemishes in its outside paint. There is also bumps in the paint, on the entire case, from the manufacturing.

I had a HAF 932 as well and I think the bumps were intentional since they were going for a military look.

Also, I think the black paint is either powder coating or some other kind of coating. Might be airbrushed on.

Well, I saw a review for a 5870 about a couple weeks ago before they hit the market and the guy doing the review took apart the 5870 and I saw that the plastic part for the heatsink sticks out over the back of the pbc! so im pretty sure that extra half inch is the heatsink. Just wait a little bit to buy a non-ati reference heatsink model and you will be good

Hehe, oopsy I meant to write can't but wrote "can" instead, thanks for the correcting me.

Yeah, the Vapor-X isn't out here yet, it's just the normal Sapphire and Powercolor

I stealth mounted my dvdrw in the top bay.

You will have to cut most of the 5.25" bezel's backing away, other wise it won't open and close because of the hinges/clips on the side, I used the Dremel for that.
