I want to eliminate sag from the graphics card, as the cooler makes it very heavy.

That case is also $175.
All 8 slots are 'vertical' (the mobo-tray is horizontally mounted!) and price was never mentioned (though, I do not see it available at that price anywhere [I see it somewhere unfamiliar for ~$230]).

Not sure what you mean with the radiator, do you mean that the Accelero extends beyond the card, if so by how much?

Or do you want to use an actual water cooling radiator in the case, if so, which one?

No room for a radiator in those cases. I put a picture of the card up. The total card length with the cooler is 12". So, I need 12" of clearance with a radiator up front. I'm water cooling. Probably an AIO.

Sorry, I was looking at the view 71. Yeah, the x9 is way out of budget. $140 or less is pretty much where I'm at.

No, you're not. The Core X9 mounts the whole motherboard horizontally and has 8 vertical expansion slots. I have a Level 20 XT that I'm building in right now (same internal layout). Trust me, you could mount the largest GPU you can find, a dead body in front of it, and still have room to mount a radiator/fan in the front of the case.

Simple, doesn't exist. Not with such requirements in mind anyway.

You want flat mobo and space for every component/cooling type combination?
Used to be two brands, now.. year of our Lord 2019? Just the one brand; take it or go vertical:

(btw, when we want everything, we want it just so and we want it now, expecting it to cost less than $140 on top is kinda irrational; just saying)

Pride, honour and purity.

I was just looking at that, too. Way too expensive, unfortunately. I'm basically building a PC around this graphics card.

Did you actually look at the Streacom F12C I linked? It can fit a radiator on the side or on top, neither should interfere with the GPU.

Side:


Top:

Spoiler!


Its a bit on the Pricey side tho.

Why not just get a GPU anti sag bracket to support the weight? They are cheap and you could use any normal layout case.

Yeah, the x9 would have been perfect. Was it discontinued?

The HAF XB EVO with just one more inch of clearance would have been perfect, and it's in the price range. Was hoping for something similar to it.
