    Nah it won't. The video card won't be positioned like in a normal case. It's gonna be positioned vertically with the motherboard lying flat so it's just gonna push the card down into the pci-e slot.

    I see. it will be used only in a open bench!Still, 1.55 kg only a few cpu coolers have that weight. it seems too much for a gpu.
