Hello all,

I am thinking of changing my PC case which might facilitate putting my GPU in my first PCIe x16 slot instead of my second where it is now. My only concern is it appears the SATA ports on my motherboard might be in the way. I think there might be a very small amount of clearance but it might just be a trick of the eye. My particular GPU is a triple slot card and according to the manufacturer is 139.3mm tall and 301.925mm in length. Does anyone know if it should fit?

Thanks.

The SATA connectors are angled away from the board. You're good to go!
Thanks for the quick reply. I was only worried if the SATA ports themselves might be too tall for my GPU but I’m probably worried over nothing. I know the cables won’t be in the way but I wasn’t sure if the physical port itself would be too tall. As you can probably tell I’m quite the noob at this sort of thing.
