HD 5870 in HAF 922

Recommended Posts

I need a new case since the HD5870 was a little longer then I expected. Wouldn't fit my Gladiator 600 :(

 

Looks like HAF 922 is big enough, but not sure. Can anyone confirm that?

Yes, it will be ok

 

Look at the image, a 9800GTX+ is a bit shorter than a 5870 (around an inch I think)

So it should be ok

Looks like it would fit. Thanks.

 

Edit: I bought the case and it fits perfectly with plenty of headroom.

Just a small note But its hard to belive they made a video card that is actually longer then an extended ATX motherboard. WOW

Yeah I goofed. BUT iThe 5970 that i thought we were refering too is 12.9 inches long Most EaTx boards are a total of 13 inches long and 12 inches wide.

I'm surprised they keep on making longer vid cards.

 

Why not make it half an inch wider? half an inch wider = more than an inch and a half off the length. I'm sure most cases could fit a card that is half inch or a full inch wider than a card that is 3 inches longer than a GTX285.
