    Thanks. I had about 3/4" clear. I can't install any drives in 2 bays, but at least it works. If I go nuts and decide to set up Crossfire with 2 cards, I'll have to get a bigger case. The second card might fit, but would be touching the PSU. :)

    thats a huge card,my case is very similar to yours apart from my hdd's face forwards towards the side panel,having the two power connectors on the side and not the back of the card helped you alot

    You're right. If pin connectors were at the back, I'd be in trouble.

    Love this GPU!! Been playing Deus Ex HR at max settings with no instability. My only complaint is it heats up when I'm running 2 monitors in Extended Display mode. I guess that's to be expected. It goes from about 33C to 43C at idle.

    Don't think I'll play too much with over-clocking this card, just yet, but will investigate cooling options. Fan tweaking?

    Yeah its to be expected with more monitors/higher res,you can manually set a fan percentage,my 5770 is just right at 50% fan speed and silent,yet my 5870 runs cooler if I leave it on auto fan speed,so you would need to test that,one thing you can do is add a 120mm or 140mm silent fan in the top and or side panel door to suck in cool air and exhaust hot air through and across your gpu and then up and out of the case,that might help temps,my cards run hot 70-74c when running games anyway and idle between 32-36c

    "you can manually set a fan percentage"

    I was looking at that. Which software do you use to tweak GPU settings? I have Asus Smart Doctor and AMD Catalyst Control Center. Not sure which one is safest to use. Do you just set the fan at 50% and leave it there? I tried it and seemed a bit loud. Good idea about getting another case fan(s) to help cool hardware.

    just amd ccc,the noise depends on your card,my 5870 is loud if i set to 50% but my 5770 isnt,plus the 5870 gets 2 to 3 degrees hotter if set to a fixed fan speed than if i leave it on auto
