    With such a long card, there are going to be some definite fitting issues on smaller cases. For our testing we use a Thermaltake Speedo case, which is itself an oversized case. We ended up having to remove the adjustable fan used to cool the PCIe slots in order to make the 5970 fit.[\quote]

  2. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    The speedo is a Full tower ATX, so, the HD5970 fit without problems in your case.

    It is a good little video, I am building a computer right now with the spedo advanced case and it will fit anything you want as far as graphics! Just make sure you get enuff
    power, both nvidia and ATI have compatible charts.
  4. I have a 5850 in my spedo, and there is still a good 5-6 inches of clearance.
  5. Hell Yeah TSD16.
    I got a ?, Do you get better Temps. with or without the Cooling compartments,
    or what combination, do you get the best temps in. Like none, or just the psu, or the psu and graphics card(s)??

    I didnt see a noticeable difference, i ended up taking the compartments out, they were more of a nuisance when working inside the box.

    The only gripe I have with the advance package, is the window fan and the fan at the top of the box started rattling. I just ended up removing them for the time being, I think they were 220-230mm fans? somewhere around there, All i know is its not a common size, I currently ordered some 200mm fans as replacements to see if I cant mod them into the case.

    This case is has good airflow though, the thing is practically made out of a screen door. Which has led to a few close calls with spilling pop :) .
  7. I emailed Thermaltake and they said they are going to have replacement fans for order in the next couple of months.
    Yeah I haven't ordered mine yet I am waiting for the HEXcore and 890GX-GD70, anyways
    all I heard was people saying there shiz gets hotter with the compartments, and
    I discussed it with people and they were like, they tested it and why would they
    put compartments in if they were not going to cool it. I just have been thinking about
    I am not worried either way I might not even use it I want to setup a
    240mm H50 cooler with the radiator on the top! I got the idea the other day when
    I saw someone put there H50 fan and rad. in the front, which makes sense
    you get all the fresh cool air when it first enters the case!!
    I am sure that it has really good ventalation, I saw a pic
    where a dude put to huge fans on the bottom facing up
    pushing all the air past the cards and out the back
