Default What Is The Height Restriction for a graphics Card in a RVZ01/ML07?

I'm building a living room PC with the Silverstone Milo ML07 and an R9 290. My first choice is the Sapphire Vapor X but the height of this card is 1.85" (4.7 CM), which is triple slot, and the height restriction of a card in the ML07 or RVZ01 isn't mentioned anywhere.

Will it fit with 25mm thick fans mounted beneath the video card? will it fit with 15mm fans? If not, will it fit without the fans mounted on the case?

If it fit without the mounted fans, will it choke or will it be able to direct air in from the fan openings?

Short answer: NO, at least without modding at LEAST the bracket on the card and even then it may not have room enough to breath... stick with dual slot IMO.

"The case still fits Mini-ITX motherboards along with dual-slot graphics cards up to 330 mm in length. "

Use an XFX double dissipation R9 290. It has a competent cooler and definitely fits within your limits.
