Also anyone here running a 8x PCI-E Raid card in one of the 16x slots ?.. would like to use a LSI 9260-4i you see..
Depending on where you locate your fans, I'd say yes. I've got a TRUE 120 Black, with a fan mounted to push, and while the True itself does not hamper the standard height crucial ballistix, the fan sits right over the first stick. (Of course if you use a 120x20mm fan here...problem solved
Taller sticks will definitely pose a problem in this orientation. I'm not sure about if it were rotated 90 degrees though...somebody?
WRT the RAID card, I've tried a 4x HighPoint RocketRaid with mixed results. Most times the raid card's bios would not post. HighPoint support indicated there may be not enough memory availble to load the RocketRaid's BIOS. Of course YMMV and the last time I tried was with the 1.5 version of the GD-70's BIOS.
