The FE cards are a better choice as the blower style cards push the air out the back of the case instead of keeping it inside. I have a 1060 ITX single fan card and it definitely works harder now that the air isn't getting pushed out.

You just have to make sure that it will fit in your chassis. It looks to be 10.54 inches. You may need to remove the front fan to fit the card.

I've never removed mine but I wouldn't imagine it's very difficult. I'm not sure if you'll have to cut out anything inside of the machine. It is the only fan directly drawing air into the chassis but your GPU fan will take over this so you should get enough air coming in.
There is a long thread here with people talking about installing a 2070 in the X51. I would have a read through that one.

Anyone have any knowledge of anyone that put a 2060 in an x51 r1 with 330 PSU?
