This is not an exhaustive list, focused primarily on current gen top-tier cards (as these tend to be the largest). Downrange models often share designs with higher end models, so this should still be useful for determining compatibility with many of those cards. Note that until verified by users, compatibility is a best guess based on published specs and product photos, and will tend to be conservative.

Generally speaking, nvidia and AMD reference/Founder's Edition cards will always fit.

GPU compatibility (M1 V6)


Graphics Card Support

Maximum length​
  • 322mm (cards up to 45mm (2.2 slots) thick)
  • 280mm (cards up to 60mm (3 slots) thick)
  • 300mm (cards up to 60mm (3 slots) thick with front I/O ports removed)
Maximum height (AKA width)​
  • 140mm at mid-card
  • 130mm (first 5mm at back corner)
  • 125mm (portion of card over 280mm long)
  • Please allow 15-20mm for PCIe power connectors
Bottom fan support​
  • 25mm thick fans: 2-slot (<42mm) cards only
  • 15mm thick fans: up to 2.5-slot (<50mm) cards
GPU support bracket​
  • 2 to 2.5 slot (<42mm-50mm) cards only


Note: The above dimensions represent the available space as simple rectangular prisms and are only an approximation. In reality, neither the available space nor graphics cards are perfect rectangular prisms. In particular, due to the angular designs of most GPU shrouds they rarely occupy the full length/thickness at the lower front. This approximation of the actual dimensions can sometimes mean that a GPU that does not fit on paper will fit in reality, which can only be determined through actual test fitment. The compatibility lists below are based on the listed dimensions so are only approximations, unless confirmed by a user.

The following diagrams provide a more detailed and accurate representation of the available space:



Detailed length/height diagram:



Please note this shows the maximum internal dimensions and does not account for card installation.

Example of a reference height card (PCB/cooler =~111mm tall) - no recessed connectors:




Example of a tall card (PCB and/or cooler over 111mm tall) - no recessed connectors; height added by PCIe power connectors can prevent installation in narrower cases:




Example of a tall card with recessed PCIe power connectors - reduced overall height may allow installation in more cases:

____________________________

On waterblocks: GPU height is (usually) measured from the PCIe x16 edge connector to the top of the PCB or cooler shroud. Full cover waterblocks do not cover the PCIe edge connector, so the connector height (13mm) should be added to the waterblock height to determine the overall height for fitment purposes.

Generally speaking, only water blocks for cards with PCB height limited to the PCIe card specification (111mm tall) will fit in the M1.

____________________________

Where low profile PCIe power adapters are indicated for fitment, ModDIY connectors are suggested.

Thanks for this!

The sapphire pulse rx5700xt is now listed at 254x135x46.5 mm. I’m thinking that’s gonna miss by the pcie corner exclusion?

I will add it as compatible, but the height of the card at the rear corner puts it very close to the limit and therefore might make for a difficult install.

Also the Asrock Challenger 5700s look to have been updated on their website to 281x137x42 mm. Might be a bit dicey like the Sapphire? What is with all these chonker amd cards?

Also thanks for compiling this...trying to plan a build is really a lot easier with this table

They've changed the measurement to include the bracket, which adds ~15mm to the overall height. My list uses the measurements without the bracket, as this is the more common way of measuring cards.

How can I be sure that's what they're doing? By eyeballing it. Take a look at the retention flange of the PCI bracket, and compare the height of the card to that. The bracket is always the same, so you can get a pretty quick estimate of the height by comparing them:



The retention flange extends 13.3mm from the rear. You'll note that the card height extension A on the ASRock card is fairly close to the length of the flange, which is consistent with what we get (15.3mm) if we calculate it using the original 121mm height given by ASRock and subtracting the distance from the flange to the edge of the PCIe connector (105.7mm).

Contrast that with the EVGA FTW3 card on the bottom which is 139.3mm tall (without the bracket); the height past the bracket (B) is clearly much greater than the length of the bracket flange.

That’s really good to know. That’s why a list like this is super useful for folks, i know I’ve been trying to figure out what aib cards are in play for my next build and it’s next to impossible to suss out.

https://www.powercolor.com/product?id=1565160726
Looks like it is 300mm length, so probably does not fit.
Not only is it long but very tall, with the power connectors at the top of the PCB. This one I would guess is a no go for the Ncase. If you look at this page from PowerColor they have a couple other 5700 XT's that should fit no problem.

Yes, makes sense. Just putting info so he can update the table.

Here is another one that is now available for purchase:
https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/Radeon-RX-5700-XT-MECH-OC
232 x 126 x 46 mm

That one fits I think.

I’m sorry. Is there a list like this for previous version cards? I see an Asus 2080 ti oc isn’t compatible because of recessed power connectors. Is this the same for the Asus 1080 ti oc? Becauuuseeee I have one showing up on Monday. Lol.

Recessed power connectors mean the card is more likely to be compatible, not less. It just happens that those cards are still too large in other ways.

Is your card the 1080 Strix? Here's a post showing that card in the M1.

Hey now that the xfx thicc 2 is out you should add it to the list, although I'm 90% sure it's incompatible they really weren't lying about it being thicc

Really wish the 5700 xt Pulse was a better fit, would be an easy choice for GPU.

now have to decide between 5700 xt FE vs 2070 Super FE
