And Artic Silver 5.

The Antec case does come with some fans, but I've heard they're not the best and I may need to replace them in the future - so I'd rather get that resolved ahead of time.

Thank you!

^i've never looked into the Antec 300 card specs.
I just bought a Cooler Master Storm Scout, and I'm def noticing some card length issues, max of 10.5". I had to RMA my gtx 470 SoC I ordered with my build because it was 11".

I dont do that, I just needlessly critize the choices other people make while offerign no alternatives.
