    But here is an image of 4870's in that Lian Li case. It looks like from the picture that it would fit. But I also could not find any specific posts to your questions hope this helps a little?[​IMG]

    Looks like it might fit in the top PCI E slot

    5870 fit Lian Li PC-7 Plus II, Antec Sonata III

    I don't have the card installed in my case, I'm using a nvidia 8800gt which is 9" long, But I do have a tape measure sitting on one of my harddrives showing what can fit. I have 2 cases a Lian Li PC-7 Plus II mid tower case. and an Antec Sonata III mid tower case.
    Assuming what I've read... (the 5870 is 11 1/8" long, and the 5850 is 9 5/8" long) In the Lian li the 5870 will fit if only one is being used, if crossfired, it will require the HD bay to be mounted sideways or chopped or removed. The 5850 will fit fine alone or paired with a second 5850 in crossfire without any mod or removal of the hd bay, With my Antec case the 5850 with fit, alone or paired up with another one. The 5870 will only fit if the card is exactly 11" if its the 11 1/8" as I've heard elsewhere it will not fit as a single card or with a second card without chopping the hd bays.

    here's the money shot, lian li first and the antec second.[​IMG]

    According to an Artical from Andy Tech..... A 5970 Xfire set up will fit into a Thermaltake Speedo. So considering the Thermaltake Speedo advanced is just a souped up version of the thermal take Speedo I would say yes....... Here is the article read and it will tell you..... Hope this helps.....

    If worse comes to worse I would just take off that little heat shield covering the video cards.

    My Diamond 5870 stock reference design is exactly 11 inches. Some people say 11.2 with the fins but I measured twice from front to back and out of my case..... and I got exactly 11 inches.

    I just received my Tt Xaser VI (VG4000SNA), have not had time to start assembling yet, but I believe a 5870 will fit?

    It is not really clear from the photo, but it is 14 inches from expansion slot to drive bays.

    anyone know if the 5870 will fit in a Lian Li A05 series case? My friend just bought a 5830 and REALLY wants to make sure it will fit. He has removed the HDD cage if it makes any difference.

    The Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced should be mentionned. This case is new for 2010 and should replace the regular CM 690, for whoever wants to get a 690 case.

    http://www.ninjalane.com/reviews/cases/cm690ii

    I've measured in my CM690 II Advanced how long a graphics card it can take, and it clears a solid 12 inches. Since the HD5870 is 11.1 inches in length and has it's PCI-E power connectors on the side, there shouldn't be any issues fitting this card in the CM690 II Advanced.

    A pic of the measurement in CM can be found in the CM690 II Advanced thread in tpu by (FIH) The Don: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=113623&page=3

    EDIT: Here's an article about the CM 690 II Advanced mentionning that the case fits all cards but the 5970.

    Vapor 5870 fits easy in coolermaster scout

    Get a Sapphire Vapor X rev.2 (blue PCB not the green rev1 which is 10mm longer) Total card length is 257mm rev2 & 267mm for rev1
    Reference HD5870 is 282mm and is too big for scout by 15mm.
    I think both vapor versions would just fit in my scout, rev2 has 10mm to spare. :D
