Hi Everyone,

I'm building a custom case designed for watercooling.

I'm curious as to whether graphics card PCBs of the same type are all the same dimensions, e.g. do all 1080's (whether reference or aftermarket) have the same length of PCB? If so, are the screw holes typically in the same places? If so is it just the cooler that impacts the dimensions of the card?

Cheers

No, they aren't all the same. That said, all of them using the Nvidia reference pcb are the same.

my msi cards seem to extend further from the board slots than other cards I own so I can't install the side panel on cases such as my air 240 with the msi cards installed in this case.
