I hope so.
Actually I am more worried about the psu and 9800gtx clearance.
hmm, if you wanted SLI then by all means go for the newer board. Is it possible to change?
Actually the PSU is bottom mounted like mine I think and shouldn't be an issue
Not sure on the 9800gtx my dual slot 9600gt sits much shallower than the cpu sink (In slot#1 haven't added a second card yet).... including a pic
No I can only return if defective,for same unit.Besides no one else has the 780a msi that I can find.
PSU is top mounted,on this model.
See that and the fan is mounted over the Mobo. I see there are extensions on the sides of the case does the fan sit in one of those?
Because if not your screwed on your CPU cooler
I'm sorry I don't quite get what you are saying.
From the pics the side panels seem raised out from the chassis. Is the fan flush with those raised panels if so then it will give more depth for the larger fan which is a good idea. Will allow your cpu cooler to and other taller components to fit np. If not you may have some issues with clearance thats all. Hard to tell I don't have the case here
Wow I guess I'll cross that bridge,when I get there.
The large side fan only sticks out about 1/2",into the case.
Waiting for all the guts to be delivered 5/22 by Fed Ex.
Well I would think a case of that quality would allow for such things keep us posted Bro
Well got the order today,only the PSU comes separate.HSF is so huge I don't think it will fit.Unable to test 9800gtx because my psu has no 6 pin pwr,and BFG said both connections have to be in.Everything arrived no damage.Will follow up.
There is a mod for 6 pin vs 4 pin PCI-E power connection. I think its on here if not I can post it up when you get the card
I have it all here except the psu.
Cool hope the PSU fits ok and will look for that mod its simple ..
The 4 pin PCI-E has 2 x 12V and ground .. the 6 pin simply has a third 12V and ground
Ok I'll wait.
