Case for PCI Long Card

I have a PCI long card:

- 12.3 in. (31.24 cm) long (without edge retainer)
- 13.3 in. (33.78 cm) long (with edge retainer)

Can anybody recommend mid-tower or smaller cases that would allow for this card without breaking the bank? Seems like the drive bays often get in the way...

Thanks

  1. OMG.!:-o That is one seriously long PCI card.. Well I am not aware of any budget cases that can fit that sort of lengthy cards.. Check out the CM HAF 922 and the CM Storm Sniper.. If they don't fit it then you have to shell out for a huge full tower case like the Lian-Li PC A70F..

  3. Looking at the pictures of the cases you mentioned, it doesn't look like there is a lot of room between the mother board and the drive bays.

    I currently use an older Chieftec Dragon. Nice thing about it is that the drive bays don't go all the way to the bottom of the case. But it is older. 80mm fans, screws (pre-toolless).
  4. Don't get fooled by images.. Both those cases can accommodate the HD 5970 which is a little more than 12 images long..
