Yes, I had to modify my case a bit. My wife was getting concerned when she saw me with the side cutters. These cards are huge, but being this large has an advantage of being able to get fresh air from the front of the case. I expected these type cards to be loud but its not nearly as loud as I thought it would be. Honestley before I put this in you had to strain your ears to tell if it was running now you can for the most part barely notice it on till you start applications even still the noise level is acceptable. Personelly I could never afford to spend 200$+ on a video card but I certainly appreciate getting this one.

Congrats. Sounds like you deserve it for biking in the rain 5km. Congrats!

Now if you have you computer in a small room like me then your GPU can heat it up during the winter.
