    Default Will HD 6950 2GB Fit My Case?

    Hi:

    Recently performed major upgrades to system. Not happy with my current graphics card, EVGA GTS 450 1GB. I looked at several cards, and decided to switch to AMD and settled on Asus HD 6950 2GB.

    I have an Asus P8P67 LE Rev 3.0 MB installed in a Thermaltake V3 Black chassis. The 6950 card dimensions are given as 11.7" x 5". The case measures about 12.25" from the inside back to the HDD bays. Will this card fit?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Thanks. Yes, I measured with a steel ruler. I know the power connectors go on the top (side?) and not the back. I am just not sure what the 11.7" refers to. On my current card, the spec dimensions seem to refer to the PCB card itself, excluding the cooler and pin-connectors. If someone has an Asus HD 6950 2G in their PC, they might be able to give me exact outside dimensions.

    11.7" will refer to the card itself,with 12.25" you should have a bit of space for the power connectors to fit,or if they fit on the top then even better,i have a 5870 card which measures 10 and a half inches and power connects at the back,it fits fine in my casecom casewith a few centimetres to spare,sorry i dont have the same card/case but i think youll be fine,maybe someone who has same card can comment further

    Found evidence the 6950 will fit (lengthwise at least). Did a search on Youtube and found this Review and Benchmark video where he physically measured the card. It's 11.5". Thank you for all your input. Now I just have to get up the nerve to pony up the dough.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Case manufacturer says no. He said that model case will accept up to a maximum 10.5" long graphics card. Oops. Now what? Can't afford too many more upgrades.

    What about modifying the case to fit? It actually looks like it will fit, unless there are space requirements for heat dissipation.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    What's the case looklike regarding the hdd cage? My 5870 clears the cage giving me a clear run from the back to the front of the case inside,if yours is the same it should fit,thought you said you had over 12inches spare? If so again it should fit

    Thanks. I think it might work. The card encroaches slightly above bottom bay, but shouldn't touch it. I'm guessing the case manufacturer is allowing for pin connectors and cables at the back of the card. In the case of the 6950, this is not an issue.

    If you do get the card,post back on how you get on,it should fit imo but if not you can modify the case fairly easy,at the most you would lose a hdd space if you hacksawed a piece out,but i dont think it would come to that

    Card fit no problem. No case mod required. Thanks for the feedback. No thanks to case manufacturer tech support who said it wouldn't fit.
