Default Re: The "8800GTX Fits My Case!" Thread

Alright here is the 8800GTX in an Antec P180 case.





Had to take one of my drives out of the drive cage for it to fit. Luckily there is more drive space down below.

See the sig.

Have about 4" between the end of the card and HDs.

Without even doing any research, I can assure anyone with the AOpen XC Cube that it will not fit...

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.
I also own a Thermaltake Tsunami, but i sawed off a piece of the HDD bracket.

I removed the card a few times and i saw that it was touching the bracket. I could see marks on the PCB of the card. I dont want to take any chances of it getting damaged in some kind of way

Hey, I do my part to keep people informed.

I was kinda hoping for someone to say "WTF?!?! It wont??? I just spent $300 on one of those!!"

It would amuse me...

Hopefully I'm not being redundant here... but here's my P180B with the top cage removed.

reyalP, I got the 8800GTX to fit in the Lian Li PC60 with a small modification. If you install it as is, the capacitors will touch the hard drives if they are installed vertically. If your drives are installed horizontally, there shouldn't be a problem. In my case, I drilled out 4 drive cage mount rivets and drilled 4 new holes half an inch towards the front of the case. Then I reattached the drive cage mount with 4 screws and locking washers. I also had to cut away the hole in the drive cage mount for the speaker. A fairly easy mod if you have a drill and it takes less than hour.
