Will 5870 fit into thermaltake element s case?

Hi everyone,

I'm getting an HD 5870 (or GTX 480) in the coming few weeks but I read that the cards are a bit long and might not fit into my case, any advise is welcomed.

  1. No Help??? :(
  2. well the card measures 10.5 inches.
    so get a ruler and measure it out.


    dang that's a huge graphic card...
  3. If your case has an adjustment that lets you moved the hard drive storage bay forward then you're okay. Or if you don't mind removing it and moiunting your hard drives with an adapter in the CDROM bay.
  4. Well, I measured the distance and it is slightly longer, I guess I'll be fine :)

    I'm thinking of getting the same combo as you (the 5870 and Element S). Did the card fit in the end?

    It barely fit in there, you'll also get around 0.5-1.0 extra inches.
  7. my hd 5870 fits perfectly on my thermaltake m9d case so it will be good with your element s
