Buying Evga 670 FTW: Will it fit in my Storm Scout case?

Hi guys, after much deliberation and research, I've decided to buy an Evga GTX 670 FTW, over the ASUS TOP and Sapphire 7950 OC. (feel free to offer any thoughts on my choice if you like) My question now is whether or not the FTW 670 will fit inside my Cooler Master Storm Scout case. I currently have a Sapphire 5850, and the online specs I've found say the 670 is an inch shorter, but 1.3 inches taller (4.3" vs 3" for the 5850). That's where I'm concerned. I've been looking all over and haven't seen many owners of this card, with this case, so I was curious if anyone in here knew if I'd be ok. Thanks in advance.

PS - I have a Corsair HX650 PSU and I'm assuming it's plenty fine for the FTW 670. Correct?

Again, thanks!

What is the maximum length graphics card supported?
The CM Storm Scout is designed with portability in mind. It can accommodate the largest 280GTX or HD 4870 X2 type cards. This includes all GPU 10.5" or 267mm in length or shorter. GPU cards have a maximum clearance for 10.6" or 270mm maximum length inside the Scout.


EVGA GTX 670 FTW is 10" so it will fit, and nice pick btw.

Thanks for the info. Do you think the height will be ok? I'm going to pop my case open when i get home and double check the height.

As for the card, I scored a 10% off coupon for neweggbusiness which makes it especially sweet.

I have a storm scout, and I don't recall height being an issue at all. I have an XFX 6950, not a 670. But the case has a fair amount of room for height, just not as much for length.

Yup and that the situation for all Cooler Master cases.
