10.5" card can fit if u remove the front case fan. you can also replace it with a thinner fan like this one http://www.frozencpu.com/products/1...WM_Fan_R126010BUAF.html?tl=g36c365s1625#blankThe 1070 is now showing up on the geforce site, it is indeed 150w but unfortunately the length of it is 10.5" but that may be only for there edition, really hoping EVGA or some other brand reduce it the length to 9.5" so it fits in the X51
Going to be a nice upgrade especially if your running at 1440P or more. I like the idea of putting a 1070 inside my R3 but right now I have a 980ti in a amp and wont see any real benefits other than a cleaner setup so guess I will hold off for now.I believe the official specs of the 970 have it as 10.5 so there could be a good chance a 9.5 is made. Want to see some benchmarks of 970 vs. 1070.
Let us know how this goes, this would be a perfect setup if it works solid. ThanksI got my 1080 founders edition coming on Tuesday, I'm going to be putting this inside my r3... hopefully it works, the 980 (165W) did perfectly, the 760ti (170W) was a alienware preconfigure card at one point and its only 10 watts less than the 1080 (180w) so wish me luck.
ill let everyone know how it comes out Wednesday morning. I've seen people have issues with the r9 Nano (180W) but I think that's because the unlocked processor plus the water cooler uses up too much power.
My r3 has the i7-6700 locked. no water cooler
I ran the 3Dmark 4K benchmark and my pc was fine and I have been playing gta on 4K ultra for about a hour nothing happen no shutdown or anything. The thing is these new 6th gen processors are so efficient compare to the r2 i7-4790. There really shouldn't be a issue with using this gpu both of those components alone use up about 240w on a full load. Everything else is minor, the pc at the worst would hit 300w in my opinion. But like I said I wouldn't go overclockong the gpu or using the i7-6700k with water cooling that might bring it to its limit.Thanks, Chris401!
So the 350w PSU can run the 1080 just fine?
