I bought two of those a few months back and they're big cards, you'll need quite a bit of clearance for them.

I was thinking of possibley 3D printing a part to act as a table to keep the graphics card up which lifts it up enough so that the fan can freely spin.

You don't need to 3D print a part, you can just throw in any object that can hold the video card up.

 

BTW, why do you have a PCIe NIC? Doesn't your motherboard have a Gigabit LAN port?

Hi. I recently got a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 and the problem I'm finding is that the way the slots on my motherboard are my wifi card is just touching the left fan of my graphics card. I was wondering what the best way to solve this would be. From the pictures below you can see that the card sags a little bit. I was thinking of possibley 3D printing a part to act as a table to keep the graphics card up which lifts it up enough so that the fan can freely spin. Although that's a bit too hacky of a solution for me. Any thoughts on this?

Zip tie the PCIe cable to the hard drive mounting plate of your case so that it holds the GPU up.

Also you should plug in your second 6 pin power connector.
