You can't really fit anything bigger than 10.5 in the scout according to nVidia fermi is 10.5 if so I see my next card.
Ya man i have no idea why its longer, i'll be going for the fermi cards as well if they fit in the scout. If they dont fit, then well its time for a new case so i can build a decent waterloop as well hehe.

what about the skinny cases? lol i know of a few cases that are exceptionally skinny (htpcs cases?) that fit ATX mother boards and smaller video cards like the 5770

of coarse.... who needs the latest greatest video card in a glorified DvD player?

woot for the scout and the wondow being pushed out just that little bit!

you can eather cut up the HDD cage or if your one of those lucky guys you can stick it in the lower 5.25in bays if your mobo has a PCI-E slit high enough up




EDIT: 3 posts in the time it took me to wright the first one XD sorry for the extra space used

Ya i would imagine you would put a fermi card in a htpc case, or a 5870 for that matter. Woudnt be too big of a hassle to have a wider card in the scout, worst case scenario is you cant use the window to mount a fan i imagine.

The MSI 790FX-GD70 is a good board for using the long cards. The top PCI-E slot will allow a long GPU card to extend into the 5.25" bay with no case mods. I believe the higher end Gigabyte boards as well. It seems to me that the AMD boards have the PCI-E slot higher up on the board, but I could be wrong as I have put no real research into it.

I am bewildered at how you were able to fit it.
Oh, come on now, it just takes a pair of long jaw pliers, some neoprene sheet to cover the jaws and a good right arm. Ok, right and left arm, then some nudging here & pushing there, legs wrapped around the case to hold it, it goes in eventually.

It's on page 1 Path, it's under my name but Enigma has it wrong it is a 5870, not a 5890. If you look at the front of the case, the top of the drive cage is leaning towards the fan, the bottom stayed where it was. It was more of a 1/2" dent than any real Mod, all that had to be fit was the nose piece then a good push on the back end and it seated. Also I only pushed on the bead of the 3.5" cage, anything else that may or may not have moved was not my intention.

One more thing, if you have the same mobo that Rockr has, that card will fit right it without a single complaint.

The 5850 fits with no modding, that's why I bought it for Mindy's Scout. I have a pic of that if you want me to put it up.

Stop using paypal over a year ago because they kept restricting my account and telling me i had to send in proof of business license?? and refused to believe that i wasnt a business with all the stuff i sell online. So wife made and account a couple months ago, and when i started selling on here decided to give them a try again....whadya know...restricted account again...Know they are telling me that in order to get it un restricted i have to show proof of delivery of items...yet they canceled my shipping labels i printed...so had to start refunding money back to all the buyers of all my items...and again ran into a problem, they canceled my shipping labels but didnt refund me the money for them yet...so got all but one person refunded. **** PAYPAL, im threw with them..god dam people piss me off.

Too bad I'm an Intel guy. Any Intel boards have a slot that high? Some AMD boards do have tendencies to put the PCI-E slots up higher.
