I know there are other people here using the CM 830 with 8800 GTX. I'm just wondering if you guys have fitting issue with the card. I'm running my GTX's without screwing them onto the chasis because when the cards are fully seated the holes on the brackets do not align with the ones on the expansion slots, and the brackets are a bit too tall so they don't even touch the chasis. A friend of mine has the CM Wavemaster case, and he has the same problem.

i had same issue, i just had to push hard and the card clicked in. make sure u apply greater pressure to the bracket end than the tail end.

I had to push a bit hard until it got in correctly. Other than that, it's screwed right in.

Thanks for the suggestion I'll try push hard.

Try pushing the metal side of the card in while inserting, so it gets squeezed in, that's what I had to do.

Yeah, it worked by pushing a bit hard on the bracket end first then the tail end. Thanks again!

The only card I frequently have problems with is my X-Fi. My evga 8800GTX went in without any problems.

I believe this was an issue with the origional version of the 830 (which I have). The newer revisions, don't have this problem from what I understand.

Hey guys I got the 830 aslo, my cards wouldn't fit I had to force it. I than went to coolermaster forum and found out they had a new version of the motherboard tray that had the fix. You have to send in a picture of the cards not fitting in and a copy of a reciept for your case to get replacement. The only problem when I got the replacement , it was the same deal lol!

Ah crap i have one of the first 830's so i guess i need a new tray might save me from having to cut off all my PCI/PCI-E lips on the brackets to fit them. Bugger i have had to do that to 5 cards already.

You have to send pictures of the card not fitting? lmfao you think that the recipt would be more then enough
as the would be able to go by the model number!! I guess i will have to look for my invoice but i have had the case
for almost a year now i don't know if i will be able to find it now :(

when i got the case, i was trying to fit in two 7800GTs, i thought i would go crazy, took me over a hour, because i didn't want to force it, thus breaking the cards.

now i know that coolermaster ****ed up, i will be calling them

Yeah took me quite a while which was why i cut off the PCI lips, did my head right in tried for an hour to fit them. Took less time to assemble the full system

Yeh the replacement tray was the same as my orginal still had to force and wiggle the metal panel into the slot. Seems like the end of the metal panel of the cards are hitting the edge of the faceplate so if you push from the other side while pushing down on the card it will finally go in the slot holder.

First and last coolermaster case I buy. Build quality is crap, and the thing is very unfriendly to water kits. I'm not sure why they even bothered when the origional stacker had so much going for it.

just as a question, do you guys like the cm stacker 830 silver or black better? i'm going to buy one and can't decide between the two.

I would get a lian li or silverstone if I were you. Hell I would even take a Thermaltake over this thing. Then again I water cool which this case is clearly not designed for even though it's HUGE! :(

None, and I have both 8800 GTX's in SLI and still have plenty of room :)

and I put my tray upsaide dowm. so thus, the GPU's are facing up, and it seems to have more room that way :)

and I got the Nvidia Edition, and I like it :)

I think mine's the latest version 830 since it has all those stuff like wheels, HDD bracket, etc that the original doesn't.

The 830 Evo?

They have like 4-5 variants on the 830 now.
