I don't really understand why people like big cases, I think they look ridiculous. Things should be getting smaller, not bigger. I see some people with case the size of a wardrobe.

I can't fit my GPU's in a mid size tower. I tried and there was not enough room. My GPU's are like 12-14 inches long each.


I think Corsair's mid size Obsidian cases can fit GPUs that long.

That doesn't seem quite right.
If the cards in the sig are the ones you're talking about those should be less than 12 inches which should fit in a lot of mid cases.

I've looked at 690s and 7990s just for fun and those are usually 12 inches or less.

My Thermaltake mid case can fit 12 1/2 inch cards.

Yes, they can. And according to MSI, his graphics cards are only ~11" long...

you can actually fit an H100 in it if you put it on top instead of on the back side where they normally go


Who installs H100s on the back side???
