    Same here dude i saw this product this morning. I am having trouble understanding PCBs and there design on gpus. I have the same card as well, the sapphire 7950 3gb Flex, and when i saw nzxt product details it said based on reference design, but i havent found a way to confirm whether or not an non referenced gpu uses the same pcb as the referenced.

    Hey Guys,


    We are currently trying to get cards to keep testing them to see if they fit the Bracket.

    This is our current list so far.

    Compatibility Nvidia : GTX 780, 770, 760, Titan, 680, 670, 660Ti, 580, 570, 560Ti, 560, 560SE
    AMD : R9 290X, 290, 280X, 280, 270X, 270 HD7970, 7950*, 7870, 7850, 6970, 6950, 6870, 6850, 6790, 6770, 5870, 5850, 5830
    The compatibility list is based on AMD Radeon and NVIDIA's reference board layout only. Please check the height restriction before purchase.

    Dude, I really am planning to get the G10, the question is what's the shim size and thickness I should use for a HD 7950??
