Got got myself a new case w/8pci-e slots on mobo. But paperwork says guys must be 45mm or smaller. Am I ok to grab most any dual slot gpus? I’m looking @ the evga 1070s, would hate to order 8 cards just to find they don’t fit!
Any help/insight would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance
Apologies for typo. Kinda hate spellchecker on this new phone lol
*GPU must be 45mm…
What mobo do you use? Are you planning on enclosed rig mining? That would be cool, since a lot on open air rigs… i saw someone on the pub made a case for his rigs, that is also cool… if they dont fit, you still have an option to use pcie riser kit, from posts and articles i read…
Gonna use a ptebought case I saw on voskcoin. It’s kinda like an octo board w/enclosed case, fans, cpu and USB w/smOS preconfigured. I sing a 1600 watt server PSU (Half the price vs modular) and I’m grabbing an 8-pack of Asus 1060 6gb GPUs for it. Frankly, the entire rig minus the graphics boards actually comes out to be $50 LESS than a full blown DIY rig. Figured I’d give it a shot! Check em out @ miningcave.com (or maybe .net). Lemme know what you think. They shipped the case out to me in 3 days. Looks like a winner (on paper). I will update layer this week w/proven hesitates etc. Thanks for inquiring bro. Now that I settled on 1060s, I don’t need to worry about double fat cards
nice looking website though they sell pretty good deal, to noy DIYers maybe thats the best choice just buy which suits best… good info bro
Everything that I have found states that a standard duel slot GPU like a reference 1080 is approximately 1.55 inches. I know most of the ROG strix cards are 2.5 slots and not two slots. I have also ran into issues with standard duel slot cards not getting enough air.
I would highly recommend if you are going with an enclosure you go with Reference cards. An enclosed case is meant for a front to back air flow and standard gaming cards do not exhaust out the back like a reference card does.
Also if you want to get extremely fancy you could water cool them and take them down to single slot cards.
