Compatibility with 7900GT?

Recommended Posts

Will any of the NF4 boards be compatible with the 7900GT, specifically the NF4 Ultra-D, SLI-DR & Expert? Just want to make sure the card wont be touching the chipset cooler or anything else.

I've got the 7900GT CO SC and it is a tight fit over the chipset fan, but it does fit just fine. It is VERY tight clearance, like a few mm.

 

If you don't like it being right on top of the chipset fan you can always move the card into the 2nd PCI-e slot.

What if we replace the chipset cooler with a Vantec Iceberq or a Evercool. Would that improve or deprove the situation?

It stays the same.

I have a 7900GT (Gigabyte, but basically a reference design) and it fitted without any problem with the stock cooler and now that i replaced it with an evercool VC-RE.

 

The card can sometime touche the top of the heatsink, but it is harmless.
