Got out the Dremel, cut off about 1 cm of that ridge (barely anything, really), and it does fit now, but it is TIGHT.
Just as a final note to this success story, this was with Gigabyte's 6950, which is one of the shorter 6950s from what I gathered while shopping (275mm, not counting the bracket, from my measurements). XFX was one of the few manufacturers to list their size on the site (http://xfxforce.com/en-us/products/g...tandard.aspx#2
), and they have theirs listed as 11.3 inches, which comes out to 287mm...which will definitely not fit without some more serious modding.
I'll post a pic of it tomorrow, didn't bother neatly re-routing cables or anything after I put it all back in after the Dremeling, so its still kinda messy.
