Well crap, I did not realize the Asus card was longer than the Nvidia specs. It probably will not fit. My 2070 is supposed to arrive Friday. I went ahead and ordered a graphics amplifier. I guess I will have to use that until something smaller is made
Try if you can install first the asus before using the amplifier.I'm interested in the asus too.

Another card: https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=08G-P4-2070-KR

I firmly believe the asus card would fit. This are the spec of the asus 1080 founders edition the same card of the youtube video:

26.67 x 11.12 x3.81 cm.

And these are the spec of the asus 2070:

26.8 x 11.3 x 4 Centimeter

It's nearly the same.

The zotac is 26.8 x 11.3 x 3,8 Centimeter

I found another problem and is the power connector. Only the zotac and pny uses a 8 x 1 pin connector and the others uses 8-pin x 1, 6-pin x 1.

So only the zotac and pny is going to work. And the zotac is the most smallest one of all so i think it's the best choice to try in the x51.
