Cannot install GPU into NZXT H440

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Linus tech tips. I recently decided to build my own computer. The parts arrived today and I was eager to build it however around 10  minutes ago I encountered a big problem. The Asus R9 280 DIrect CU II GPU will not fit in the case I purchased the NZXT H440 without removing some of the hard rive bays. I have no idea however how to remove the hard drive bays necessary though and I feel that brute forcing the card in place result in damage to the card. Before I purchased the parts I of course checked their compatability on PC part picker and the NZXT website. These sites said I would have no issue installling the GPU. If any of you have an H440 or know  how to remove the hard drive bays so I can fit the GPU in I would highly appreciate your answers.This is my first built by myself PC so I am quite inexperienced. Thanks!  :lol:

That card is 11.2 inches.

Clearance WITH HDD cages in is 11.6 inches (15.99 inches without)

 

Put the front in first.

Lift it up on the right side and slide it in, get it in place, and push the card into the pci slot.
