Solved Question on build and video card in case Tags: Cases Build Systems Last response: April 22, 2014 10:18 PM in Systems Share sage1408 April 22, 2014 7:25:22 PM Hello, I went with build per a another thread's recommendation. Parts have arrived. It doesn't look like the Sapphire R9 270X fits in the Z12 case I got???? Help? "This is the Intel build i'd go for, i'd not get anything less than this. I'll see about getting you an amd one that's cheaper.

Basically remove some drive bays for enough room. If it's truly too big, then well. Reply to okcnaline m 0 l sage1408 April 22, 2014 7:37:20 PM sorry for the double post. The drive bays are not individually removable. Sure I could try and cut metal or something. but don't see how it fits without alteration.

Reply to okcnaline m 0 l sage1408 April 22, 2014 8:40:26 PM Thanks okcnaline. think I'm screwed. no screws I can see. It's all one piece. The card fits to low to fit in the cd/dvd drive bays and it looks like I would have to cut into the HD bay... that sucks. https://imageshack.com/i/n8i0x5j Reply to sage1408 m 0 l sage1408 April 22, 2014 8:42:29 PM tried to insert a pic... didn't do so well.
