I'd say it fits. It's a tad smaller than my Asus 280X and I managed to get it in there. You may need to plug the power in before mounting. The cables on my semi-modular psu are quite pliable. It helps a lot.

Looks so nice in white!!! Hopefully Tt will add more colors to the mix for those of us scared to paint the case? What heat sink is on your GPU? Arctic?

and it does fit - Asus GTX 970 strix

biggrin.gifthumb.gif

need to remove the front fan first to make it easier to install
GPU is close to the left most cut out but it's fine

more than enough clearance for the top panel

That came out sweet!!! I see why you had to remove the fan first. It blocks a little bit of the hole. thumb.gif
