It is. It's as if they're purposely ignoring ticket #70384. At first, they were responsive but went dowmhill from there. Lennie was the support person that handled this case. Can you help and get to the bottom of this?

I'll certainly try. I'll shoot Lennie an email now to see what the deal is here.

I got the GTX 1060 Mini to see if I could have my cake and eat it and it turns out this case can fit long GPU's and a 5th HDD! (Just not a 6th. Bummer)

I was looking for ways to make a 6th happen, but the length between the end of the GPU and the front intake fan is shorter than that of a HDD.
I could cut the plastic end off the GPU and drill holes in the hanger to screw into the side of the HDD, but 5 disks is probably enough...

In conclusion, the case falls short of a 6th HDD with a mITX GPU by about an inch! Hngggh!
I did paint my I/O shield however...

Images of the GPU using the 6th HDD space below...

Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4, Image 5, Image 6

Given the age of the case, I am super impressed. Look forward to finishing my build.

Computers follow your orders, not your intentions.

Finally got the 1080Ti FE. Fit easily. Does get quite hot when running games/benchmarks, couldn't touch side and back for more then a few second.... close to 88C.

Got MSI Afterburner, learned about under-volting, and keeping it at 70C now. Not getting the best out of it, but coming from a 970, more then 2x was good enough.

May go for a slightly bigger case next time though so i can get water cooled models.

I think, this also can be watercooled, but only once, I think

You could try replacing preinstalled 25mm thick fan with a thinner fan. There are e. g. 14 mm thick fans in the market. Also have you tried with a GTX 1650? Unfortunatelly slower then 1060, however the GPU from Palit/Gainward is only 14,5 cm long.

Oh, this place exist, neat.
So this is my build, i do know the pic is bad, just a screenshot from a video.
Asrock AB350 itx w. 200GE & 2x8GB memory.
4x2TB hdd, 3xSSD connected through an LSI dual sas card, C: is connected to mobo.

One of the 2TB drives has failed and is no longer present in the case. My planned upgrade is a MB610SP for the 3 SSD's + a ST2000DM005 as replacement for the failed drive. Had i money to burn i would like to replace the drives with 4xST3000DM007.

Ok, i know this might be blasphemy on this thread, but i attacked my Node with a dremel
Finally found a use for all my cut discs. Cut out two holes for the radiator in the top.
Made a custom top part with removable 2x240x30mm radiators.
I also got a watercooled RTX2080 and a i5-9600k. Hoping to be able to overclock these quite a bit.
Got 2 M.2 SSDs on there and decided to hide a 1TB SSD in the front cover.
Using a Z390i msi z390i MPG Gaming Edge AC and 16GB of RAM.
Just waiting for my pump/res combo, cpu-block and magnetic mesh for the top.
Looking forward to see how much power i can squeeze out of this rig.
This is such a great case, very "girlfriend friendly".

Wow, as a long node 304 owner I had no idea this place existed Been reading through the thread and I couldn't encounter an exact answer to what I'm looking for. Do we have an exact range on the clearance for GPU width? I did some measurements on my own and believe the case might allow for 4.5mm width at most which is a bummer in my case as I was really eyeing the MSI RTX 2060 Gaming series. Those coolers are getting thick!
