Would R9 Fury card fit in dell optiplex?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know that R9 furys are really large cards, but would it fit in an optiplex? Does anyone know the amount of gpu clearance that an Optiplex 990 or 790 has? PCPartpicker lists the card as being 12.1 inches (307mm) long.

790 appears to be small form factor, so not possible, and 990 looks like micro ATX, terrible breathability and if you're using an optiplex power supply I do not recommend a fury.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

The Optiplex 790 has two versions. the standard 790 is an SFF form factor, but the 790 MT is a mid-tower case size with standard GPU PCIe brackets. 

@Phil9943 If you could tell us which lettering fits the shape of your Optiplex, then I can help you out. :)

*EDIT* 

I realize I said the 790 has 2 versions and I posted a picture with 4, this photo is for a different dell device and has multiple versions. Almost every optiplex fits into one of these 4 form factors though.

i meant the mid tower case, the MT.

It will not fit in either. SATA and/or USB 3.0 connectors get in the way (not to mention the non-removable drive cage). Also, a Fury X in a poorly-ventilated Optiplex case would probably set your house on fire.

That monster is way too long to fit in an optiplex case. You would need to get something different to fit that.

definitely not that fury, the nano should be able to fit in though.

Most I would recommend you to go with a bigger case. You can even cases for 9 bucks

What sorts of models of cases? Could you give some examples so that I can do some more research?

I have a Fury X Nitro which has the same cooler as the TriX thing you showed above. It fit in a source 210 which is an old budget case, which I don't recommend. I have a Phanteks P350x and it fits my Fury with a radiator in push/pull in the front with room to spare. If you can spend $69 it really is a great case with RBG and tempered glass. *not a bot just a fan of the case lmao*

Bit of an AMD fan I suppose. I don't bias my replies to anything however, I just prefer AMD and their products. Buy whatever the H*CK you want.

Wouldn't fit. Even if it did, that's a forest fire waiting to happen in an Optiplex case. Optis are made for productivity, not gaming, and the cases are built as such.

 

Find out how long your GPU is from the manufacturer's website. I believe PCPartPicker has a maximum GPU length filter in their cases. Also, make sure your power supply can handle it.

My card is just slightly over 1 ft long and I think the one you've shown is similar.  They do need a lot of room.  Also, do not underestimate the amount of heat it can throw out.  They don't get hot as some might expect because the cooler is excellent, but it needs good airflow to work.  If you trap that in a poorly ventilated case you're gonna have a bad time.  I also second the advice to check your PSU.  My card has a switch so I can select between a 250 W and 300 W vBIOS, with the option to boost it another 50% in afterburner.  I run it at just 25% over because that's 375 W which is at the limit of what 2 8 pins and the slot are allowed to deliver (and because going much higher could actually max out my PSU and UPS if I were to push the CPU at the same time).  Don't throw this on just any old garbage, it will eat it.

That's a MICRO tower

 

And it wont fit if its a long GPU.  The CPU block is typically in the way on those Micro Towers.  The best you can fit is a card like the 1050 (I have a HD 7750 single slot 1gb in my HP microtower)

 

Looks like a normal case setup however, compared to some of the left handed proprietary ones you get ahold of.

I would love to see the case modding necessary to make this happen. Side panel fan mount, new vent holes, better spacing with a low profile CPU cooler, etc
