Woah! My GTX 1070 won't fit my carbide 240

Hi guys,

As the title states, i recently bought both the carbide 240 and then shortly after bought a GTX 1070 MSI 8 X. Which appears to be too big for my case. I am gutted as this was one of the final parts of my rebuild. Everything fits perfectly but the case side will not go on the side.

I was thinking about getting a 540. But i only have a little room to work with.

This is the space i have to work with in comparison to the carbide 240. I need another few inches on the width by the looks of things.

I've had to cut part of the case out just to fit it in for the interim period.

So you can see how big is is compared. I'm quite paranoid about leaving my components exposed but need a case to fit in the shown gap.

Can anyone suggest anything to help me out with this? I was thinking about getting the 540 and putting it on it's side. Would that work?

I'm using a micro-ATX mobo.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
