Now for one of my very few criticisms of the card – it doesn’t fit in a Coolermaster HAF-X full-sized ATX case with certain motherboards depending on the main x16 PCI-E slot position.
This may come as a bit of a surprise to some as it is a behemoth of a case (and nearly breaks the back of anyone carrying it to a LAN party) but the issue isn’t the length but the girth (stop it now – please) of the card which unfortunately is just wide enough to make contact with the HAF-X’s side-fan GPU shroud when using an MSI Z97 Gaming 5 motherboard:
Using our exclusive RageQuitters ‘inside shut case cam’ we also have a photo showing the predicament from the inside:
