I have a CM Storm Sniper BE selected for my next build, however I am reading some reviews that the a
Radeon 6950 2GB will not fit without cutting some of the lower HDD bay metals. All of these reviews were for the older versions of the Storm Sniper, however is there any difference between the older models and the new Black Edition? Would a 2GB 6950 be able to fit inside without cutting anything?

Here the case,

The Sniper is big, it can take any card. The CM Storm Scout is the small one.

I've tried numerous times online but can't find the inside dimensions, like from the back to the HDD cage.

there are only outside dimensions.No internal dimensions would have been listed in any site.

The Storm Sniper should be more than large enough for the 6950. The 6950 is right at 10 and 2/3 inches long. The Storm Sniper is 22 and 1/3 inches deep/long what ever you want to call that dimension. You shouldnt have a problem at all fitting that card in the case

The HD cage is at the bottom, how many inches do you think that cuts off? I'm also looking at a GTX570 which is 10.5", I wish I knew someone with the case.

Scaling a picture of the Sniper case, I came up with ~13.5" from the back of the case to the HDD cage. Plenty of room for any card out today, as very few exceed 12" in length.
