Question Corsair 280X GPU Clearance

Hi,

I am considering getting the Corsair 280X case, but I'm not fully sure about its GPU compatibility with some of the new RTX cards. I currently have a MSI GTX 980 that'll fit no problem. But I may upgrade to the RTX 20 series or newer card in the future. Many of these new series cards have lengths upwards of 300mm. I want to make sure the clearance will be enough for future cards.

As per the specifications, the max GPU length is 300mm.
  • Does this mean a 300mm long GPU sits flush with the front intake fans?
  • What's the max length of GPU that can fit in this case without a front radiator (but with LL120 intake front intake fan)?
  • What's the max length of GPU that can fit in this case without a front radiator and without a front intake fan?
  • What's the max GPU height clearance from the tempered glass panel(while accounting for power connector clearance)?

Thanks

This should give you a good idea of the length. Granted, it's a GTX 1050 in there but the tape measure should show you how much room you have with case fans.



As for depth - you have about 140mm of depth.
