Crystal 280X and 4080 16gb options

Hello fellow 280X enjoyers,

I figure that I cannot be the only one trying to work my head around putting a 4080 16gb in this case.

Based on the current info (RIP EVGA), it looks like the MSI Ventus X3 OC has the best chance of fitting at 322 x 136 x 63mm.

However, this would require removing the bottom two intake fans for clearance. Any downsides here given the card fans will be close to the fairly open bottom grille; given the proposed lack of case fan intake there? Anyone else considering this upgrade?

I'm on 9700K / H100i Platinum SE / 3080 build with RM850X so everything else seems fine except fit/airflow. Corsair's 12VHPWR cable looks perfect for it.

Any updates on this matter? What card did you end up getting? Any luck with 4080 MSI Ventus X3 OC?

I'm considering ASUS 4070ti TUF Gaming (305 x 138 x 65 mm), but I'm not sure if this can work without bottom fans
