They will fit, but depending on where the PCI-E 16X slot is on the mobo it might require modding the 3.5" drive cage to do it. Some boards that have a 16x slot closest to the cpu socket will allow the card to extend into the bottom 5.25" bay, but most need to have the 3.5" cage modified. There are several examples of people who have done it.

Another option is to completely remove the 3.5" drive cage and mount your hard drives in a 4 in 3 device in the 5.25" bays.

Well this is another question regarding 11 inch cards. can you fit a 5870 in a scout without modding the HDD cage?
post #21533 of 28613
With your board I'm thinking not.

Example, look where the #1 PCI-e slot is located on the Crosshair IV Formula (same layout as CH II F) in relation to the middle row of screwholes;

A455-2898-06.jpg

Compared to the MSI board;

I think the card will be too low to fit. Don't let this hold you back though, with a little bend at the top of the HDD cage it'll fit relatively easy.

That is my card before I purchased it from General Brisleep. Still ROCKIN!!!

Thanks for the quick and informative reply. I wish i had the Crosshair IV Formula, but my board is in fact a crosshair II formula.

I'm not afraid to mod my case, but it would just be helpful to know before i get it so i can decide what to mod.

By the looks of where my 5750 is placed and by looking at Brisleeps picture i may just be able to fit it in without a mod if the angled bit will hang a little into the drive bay. And if it does fit in then a case mod will depend on how noisy the card is and if i want to get the Accelero Xtreme 5870 biggrin.gif.

the GTX 260 216 core is a perfect fit (moved it to the lower PCIe slot after my latest rewiring...

Heres a few pics of my scout with the fan controller installed. I only have 2 fans connected so far. And yes my stock window is on the side panel temporarily. That's going to be changed back soon. smile.gif I tried some close up pics, but didn't work too well.
