Now I have four slots at the back, the hd6670 is mounted to the top in a single slot. If I were to purchase the hd7870 it wouldn't fit as its fan takes another slot above which I don't have.
My question is, does my set up limit me to only low profile single slot cards or is there anyway of re arranging and making room for the hd7870 or possibly purchasing a new case that will leave me room?
I'm not sure if I'm understanding you right or not, but the fan goes down (into an unoccupied slot), not up (into your non existent slot).
Really? If so, this is quite possibly the stupidest question in Tom's hardware history. Perhaps it is just the image of the 7870 that is throwing me off? It shows the bracket with the fans above the hdmi, dvi etc slots.
Brilliant, thanks for your help. I'll go ahead and purchase the HD7870 then. For some reason I was led to believe I could only fit single slot low profile cards due to the Micro Case + Micro ATX is there any truth to this or can I realistically fit most cards on the market?
The CPU is an AMD FX4100. Not great but enough to do the job.
Anyone else able to answer my last question? Would clear up a lot of confusion for me.
What does/doesn't my mb/case restrict me to? Is it a low profile case or can I fit most gpu's bar a crossfire set up obviously.
