I was thinking of picking up one a Fractal Design Define R3 since I'm looking to go SLI/CF for my next build and have a dedicated sound card which really can't happen in my current mATX case (even though the P180 Mini is my favorite case ever so far).

Anyway, I was wondering if any of you guys have had trouble with the length of any of the new generation cars (GTX 5xx or HD 69xx)? It seems like the newer end cards are just becoming longer in length so I need to have a case that can accommodate these cards without extra modifications needed.

I got a GTX 470 on mine and between the GTX and the Rack for Hard Drive i got a 240mm Rad and a Fran and still have about 3/8 1/2 inch free to give you an idea

Thank you. The GTX 470 is a "shorter" card compared to many of the other newer cards. I believe that it sits around 9.5" while most of the newer cards (especially the HD 69xx series) are around 11". The placement of the power connectors is also important because they can increase the required length clearance inside a case.

The only way I was able to fit my HD 5870 (10.25") into my P180 Mini was by removing one of the HDD cages but now I probably have enough room for a 13" card.

So I was just wondering if anyone has this case with one of the relatively larger cards (5970, 6970, etc) that can post their results.

I do appreciate your contribution though!

Yes it will fit. All these people wondering whether certain HSF or GPU fit.. They are designed to fit in almost any case. Whats the use of a GPU or HSF only a few people can use

Hey, I'll explain it:

First disconnect the wires from the power button and the led from your motherboard.
After that remove the front panel.

You'll find 2 screws that hold the switch and led in. Remove those screws and you can remove the switch. After that you'll have to remove the led, use a little knife or something pointy to remove it if it doesnt want to move.
After that just cut the cable from the led, and solder a white led with the right dimensions to the wire.
I used some transparant glue to hold the led in.
After that put the switch back in and the screws and you'll have a red led

The case is only $110 and we have to pay almost OR over half of the price just for shipping. -_-
