A reference GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card is 10.5 inches long. A template can easily be made and used to determine if there is enough room in an existing case to accommodate a longer graphics card. In some instances, a case upgrade may be needed.

With 681 million transistors, cooling the GPU in a warm environment will cause the fan to spin noticeably faster. For example, the current temperature in the computer room is a balmy 78.6° F (25.9° C). The GPU has been idling at 75° C for the past two hours and the fan noise is noticeable, but not overbearing. The ACS3 enclosure muffles the noise as well. Yesterday was much cooler and the GPU was idling at 68° C with the room temperature at 72° F (22.2° C).
