    Hi, im in the mid's of building a pc, and im wondering if a dual slot graphic's card will fit, because i have a corsir H60 cpu cooler, and it's taking up some of the space where the graphic's card is going.

    my case, (chassis) is a coolermaster elite 430 :wtf:

    I see images on google with CoolIt coolers installed int he back of the case. I dont get how qhat hangs above the card is going to do to the room needed under the card for a dual slot cooler.

    Please explain a little more, maybe your cooler is installed int he floor of the chassis or something, but as it sits I dont see how one is blocking the other.

    I have it installed at the top rear, and it look's like a dual slot gpu might not fit, it's cutting off room, where the expansion slot's are, i mean the radiator.

    can you take a picture? If you google image search your CM case, there are guys with AIO water coolers in that case, maybe have a look and see if that helps you any.

    I understand what your saying, The radiator may hang down so far, that it possibly gets in the way of the top PCI bracket.

    Now in saying that, I am unsure if it will hang down that far.

    Gimme a sec while I go see if I can find some measurements

    I just looked at the dimensions on the H60, the radiator is ~15cm from top the bottom. So I suggest you take a measurement of your case to see if it actually fits.

    Since its approximately 15.5, cut a bit of card to a lenght on 15.5cm and put the centre of that piece of cardboard in the middle of the rear fan mount.

    IF it moves onto one of the PCI brackets then the H60 will not fit.

    I cant find any images that tell me how much room is at that back compartment apart from that its a 120mm fan mount
