Hello! I've recently purchased your case and today's the day that the card you're talking about becomes available! However, I believe it is 2.2 slot card and not just 2.Yes it will fit. The RTX 3080 is dual slot card with a length of 285mm. So it will fit. For better air flow remove the internal plastic sheet and flip the psu that the GPU can push hot air thorugh it outside the case.
RTX 3080 compatibility list:
too bad that there are so many cards more that Dual-Slot. So there are only a few cards that will fit:

After doing some reasearch, I think there's a solution for the Asetek 645LT + Longer GPUs -- it's to use part of the losercard mod to lift the position of the riser. Main downside of doing this is it reduces GPU height, and blocks one of the IO ports on the GPU, but I don't need all 4 video IO ports on a GPU anyway, and neither the XC3 or the 3080 FE have a height big enough for that to matter.
Description: This is the final versions of the Dan A4 (V3/V4/V4.1) Ultimate Cooling Kit. The following STL files are included along with their print settings: PSU Bracket: 0.15 Layer Height, 100% Infill, 3 Walls Riser Bracket: 0.15 Layer Height, 100% Infill, 3 Walls Radiator Bracket: 0.2 Layer...www.thingiverse.com
The full losercard mod modifies way more than just the GPU height position, but for the purposes of fitting the 3080 FE or XC3, I think just the riser and PCIE bracket 3D models would be used to lift the GPU height.
Can we really confirm EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 fits into DAN A4? It's actually announced as 2.2 Slot.
It might get pretty close.
So are the pads bowing the side panel out or pushing the card in?
I also wonder if no backplate would let the card be pushed in easier, or if doing so would just bend at the PCIe.
Happy to hear that it fits, but I wonder what the thermals are like under a significant load. Looking forward to what Ari has to say in a few days.
why do you think it wont fit with the loser card mod? just curious what measurements you are looking at cause when I checked it should fit fine. wondering if I looked at the wrong measurements.Do you guys think the EVGA 3080 black will fit with the asetek AIO and noctua fan? Because as far as I can tell the card does not fit with the losercard mod.
