Well dang. I sure as hell hope that the revision of this and the r600 will be a little smaller

I have decent cabling in my p160, should barely fit I spose. Thanks a lot for the pics

If you use the bottom hard drive cage the P180(B) is great. I put an intake fan up front and removed the up top cage. I have 17 inches free from the rear of my case to where the 120mm intake fan starts. You'll like the P180B. It's simple yet classy black with some nice refinements in the last rev. Which is what most people will get. I loathe gaudy cases and adore this one.

I have all my case fans on a drive bay mounted Sunbeam rheobus and manually control their speed. I switched all the Antec three speed fans up to high and vary the voltage with the rheobus. After I removed the overly bright LEDs from the rheobus I really began to like it. I got it at FrozenCPU if anyone is wondering.

The GTX easily fits in the Silverstone TJ-07. If needed, I can post a pic either later tonight or tomorrow.

Will Geforce 8800 GTX will fit in a Gigabyte 3D Aurora Tower ?

Because my friend is willing to give me his Aurora case if it does fit.

They fit in an AOpen H600B case (even though they're quite small cases)

I just moved my hard drive to a different position.

OK the 8800 GTX fits the Thermaltake Tsunami VA3000SNA, with modification. From what I can tell this case cannot take any dual slot video card without minor modification.

What I experienced is that there are plastic supports that run above the expansion slots which are normally between each board, but with a dual slot board its in the way and there is no way to get the back edge of the card in while its there.

What I did was cut the top edge of the piece of plastic with a small wire cutter, then i was able to bend it back and forth a few times until it snapped off, making room for the card.

Here you can see the purple plastic supports as well as the one I cut which is between the open pair of green clips on the right. In the picture it is pushed to one side as I began to bend it back and forth to snap it off.




In the next picture you can see the plastic piece gone and the card in place.




In regards to size I had no issues at all. There is plenty of room between the card and the HDD cage, and I was even able to leave my HDD in the top rack.
