So, I'm a first time builder and am going to be ordering myself all the parts to do my build soon. An issue has arisen although, that the case I am using; Enthoo Evolv mATX, and the gpu; MSI GTX 1080ti DUKE, have a compatibility issue. The case specifies that the max gpu length is 319mm, and the card is 320mm. Should I be fine with this combo? I would't imagine that the case manufacturer would specify the max length as literately touching the front fans, and not allow even a mm leeway? Not sure though, what do you guys think? Thanks in advance Cheers Torin

I've tried looking around for specific examples, the only issue is that it isn't the most common case, and there are a plethora of gpu options out there, so there seems to be no information about this specific gpu and case combo, let alone a general gpu length real life compatibility test with this case. Also, could I please get a clarification as to what you mean by "I wouldn't bet my life you're mistaken". Cheers Torin

Thank you for the research you did, I also had a look around and couldn't find anything, my budget accounts for a second hand 1080ti though, because I cannot afford to put a new one in my build. So the $800 AUD that I have set aside for a graphics card don't really cover the cost of a 2080, it will cover a 2070 though, but I am not a fan of its lower performance compared to the 1080ti.
