Default 5970 fit in thermaltake armor?

Will a ATI 5970 fit inside a thermaltake armor case?

I would be curious to know the same thing. Which case are you talking about?

I think it's one of the older series.



I bought it in the past hoping that it'll fit anything in the future.

35cm if you do not have a hard drive across from it. Would be a bit tight with a hard drive but a 90 degree data sata and sata power cable should make it work.

Just measured mine. The old version in the above picture.

That looks like the same case I have.

Good grief, these cards are getting huge. Man, what do you have to do, buy a super full tower case to make sure it fits easily? Do you ever think in the future that video cards will eventually get smaller or just keep getting bigger?

I did a rough measurement and it is about 1/2 inch away from the HDD sata cables.

You can always just move your hard drives up to the back next to the PSU, which is the better place IMO. The armour is a full tower though, i am quite sure there hasn't been a card made that doesn't fit in it.
