I'm new down here and after reading interesting topics i decided to register.
My objective for building my HTPC:
-as much silence as possible
- HD video playback
- i don't play games
I'm interested by the GD01 case which if my understanding is correct is an evolution of the LC20.
I have read some Graphic cards such as 5770 can fit inside but require to remove the HDD cage i.e -2HDD which i don't want to compromise...
Question: Which graphic card can fit without having to remove the HDD Cage? What is the absolute max length the graphic card can have to be able to fit without removing the HDD Cage?
This is very important for me before i start buying.
If you can recommend me any good motherboard with minimum 8 SATA and which could fit perfectly along the 6 HDD, i will also be happy
I was looking at HIS HD 5750 iCooler IV 1GB 12.5Ã—4Ã—19.7cm (HxWxD) cm or HIS HD 5750 IceQ+ 1GB 12.5Ã—4.2Ã—21.3cm (HxWxD) cm or HIS HD 5670 IceQ 1GB12.5Ã—4.1Ã—18.3cm (HxWxD) cm (might seem an overkill since i don't play at the moment but i guess the card will still be ok if i decinde to play a few games in a near future). Noise is very low despite the fan but the issue is the length .
Thanks in advance for your help and advise
