Default Scythe Ninja

Hey all. The thought of getting a Scythe Ninja for my build is constantly floating around in the ol' noggin. But first I wanted to ask you guys if anyone has had experience with one in an NZXT Apollo case.

Basically I wanted to know if it would fit in it, it seems as though it would, but I don't to go and buy it only to find out, oh hey, it doesn't fit, now don't I look like a fool, lol.

Any help is muchly appreciated

Jared


EDIT: I forgot to mention I have a Gigabyte S3, if that is of any relavence

Awsome! I'm definatly getting it then, I was pretty worried it might not fit in my case, more specifically near the PSU, seems like it will be a tight fit.
