Node 304 and MSI GeForce GTX 970 Twin Frozr V

Hey guys,

I just bought a Fractal Node 304 along with a MSI GeForce GTX 970 Twin Frozr V but now my friend told me that I need a Mini ITX graphics card. Is this true? Will this graphics card fit the Node 304?

Thanks!

If it fits then no you don't need an itx card. If it doesn't then maybe. I know with the node 304 the size of the PSU will affect how large of a gpu you can fit in. So its hard to say without knowing the rest of your build. I believe your going to want a PSU no longer than 160cm.

Edit: The node 304 can fit a 12in Gpu as long as you have a psu no longer than 160cm. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uTU4sN40_Xk

it will fit fine but consider the restrictions. this are the restrictions

ATX PSUs, up to 160mm in length (To fit in combination with a long graphics card, PSUs with modular connectors on the back typically need to be shorter than 160 mm)

Graphics cards, up to 310mm in length, when 2 HDD slots (1 HDD hanging bracket total) are removed (Graphics cards longer than 170 mm will conflict with PSUs longer than 160mm)

I bought a Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz CPU with stock cooler, and a Corsair CX 600W. Will this fit with the graphics card? :-)

Thank you!

Just a heads up if you don't click the reply button under our comments it wont notify us you replied. Yep the graphics card will fit. Did you already buy the PSU?

Corsairs budget PSU are just ok. They aren't really made to power gaming builds or PCs that wil be underload for a while, But its fine since you already got it. Its not going to explode or anything. I actually used one in a gaming build similar to yours for about a year with no problems, so you'll be fine its just that its not that great.
