Hey guys, i'm planning to buy the new Radeon HD 7970, but i'd prefer not to change the storm scout, do you think that the XFX custom version will fit in the case without modding it? It's said to be 10.7" and at the moment i got a Sapphire 5870 Vapor-x, the one with the connector at the rear and it barely fit with some squeezing of the power cords on the HDD's cage. Maybe the case could accomodate a 275mm graphic card without bending it or modding anything? Unfortunately i got too many HDDs to just take the cage away frown.gif

Awesome modding here, i see, congrats to everyone!

Never really seen anybody personally use this stuff but its just split loom that i got at a local auto parts store for about $10. Just used it on all the stuff i couldn't hide due to not having enough wire length from PSU. I know it doesnt help cooling a whole lot but doesnt seem to hurt either. I just thought it looked cool with the red led's Maybe in the future i might put some uv lights and spray on a uv clear coat and see what it looks like.

All reference 7970's are 10.9" and motherboard dependant as to whether you'll need to adjust the HD cage.

I'm running P67 GD55, and from measurements taken, I should "just" be able to squeeze it in as the tapered end of the 7970 tapers into the upper drive bay area - just, If your mobo has the pcie slot lower, then expect to get your Dremel, saw or hammer ready depending on your subtlety lol

That's the point, the PCIe slot is lower enough to not go in that direction. What I meant was that all reference card are 10.9" because of the huge heatsink, longer than the PCB itself.T that XFX is reference regarding the PCB but the cooler seems to be enough smaller to give me a little hope in not to having the case changed. Nevertheless, i don't have a dremel, so i think i'll wait a little more to see if something turns out on that XFX. At least the price should drop a bit rolleyes.gif

Just fitted my 7970 into a Storm Scout biggrin.gif

Needed a little tweaking of the upper and lower drive bay, but took no longer than 20 minutes as the card in my mobo is about 0.2" / 5mm too long
