yeah measure the length for A, thats the longest card it will accept.

B is the best length option without it impeding air flow.

C is also an issue, an the main reason why crossfire in that case wont work well.

the two cards are gonna get hot, that means they'll back off on performance to try an get temps down.




Case you may like

Where you guys getting cases where the motherboard tray comes out? I haven't seen one like that in 20 years.

ok today i overclocked my i7 from 3.5 to 4.5ghz no problem booted up fine and ran prime95 along side realtemp to calculate temps at 100% load.....i was happy to see 65/C. but when i went back to the bios to overclock my ram from 1600 to 1800mhz it failed to boot resulting in going back to default settings, anyone know why this could happen?

Probably didn't like the OC or RAM timings. Overclocking isn't a science, mostly trial and error.
