Yes i did google.
But the problem is not if i lose slots i have 2 i can lose anyway the problem is the cooler must not extend above the card vertically .
I have maybe 1/4 of inch clearance above the card in this case. I would even be willing to buy someones stock cooler they removed if it did not extend above the card. Most of the coolers have heat pipes that extend to above the card.
this is medi center pc for movies thats reason for small case.
