Hi!
Does anyone know if the Vega 56 powercolor red dragon would fit the Dan Case? Or any other non-blower Vega 56 (because noise)?
DANCASE website says gpu width can be
Without backplate: 40 mm
Including backplate: 45 mm
I find this super confusing. Red dragon has a backplate. Why does the allowed room increase?
Says 40mm but another site said it was 41.8mm or something.
The rest is exposition, skip if you want to.
I failed my first attempt at building in the Dan case. I failed to properly research gpu dimensions and my sapphire pulse Vega 56 is too big at 55mm height. Set to return to Amazon. I want to stick with the Vega 56. It gives me the 60-70 fps I want for 1440 gaming. I want to avoid the loudness of blower style reference cards.

The red dragon measures in at 40mm, you should be ok
Thanks it makes me feel better knowing that some else thinks it will work.
A follow-up question is will my 600w psu power this card OK? The website says 650w minimum however my psu calculator always says this is all I need.
And that's after I pushed up the clock for the cpu and gpu on the Calc.

I'm using a 500w PSU with my 9600k + Vega 56 nano (same PCB) with no issues, you'll be fine as long as your unit is decent quality. And the vast majority of sfx psus are good

Thanks again Damascus but after reading the specs again I think it's too long.
I'll gave to find a different Vega card that'll fit or use a loud blower

Yeah, you could always reduce the length of the card by removing the shroud but the tallboi PCB probably won't fit
