Aurora only accepts cards that are 267mm in length

Yea.. It’s really hard to find gpu that fits R11

You can find plenty, quite literally hundreds of 3060/3070/3080 and AMD cards all at 267mm. It's a fairly common GPU length

Could you name a few for 3080 cards that does not exceed 267mm?

The ‘hybrid’ or water cooling doesn’t count. Because you can’t mount it below the gpu & you can’t mount it in front of the R11 case & R12.



3080 sounds very challenging to find a card shorter than 11in or 280mm unless it’s OEM specs. 

Or you may try RX6800XT/6900XT, the AMD reference card is exactly 269mm. I checked my 6800XT which seems to be identical to the reference card. 

Thanks!!  Appreciate it

EVGA 3060 has no issues because its shorter card.

Only needs 1 8PIN aka 2 6 pin female to 8 pin male aka 300W card max.

With a little work and movement of fans i can work ....Here is what i did. i removed the front bottom fan, removed the unused hdd slot on added a new quieter fan there. Removed an un used ssd slot on bottom put the stock fan in its place for more air flow. Replaced stock cpu cooler with a h60 water cooler. and trimmed off some of the plate on the psu door just a little triangle piece to make room for the 3070 to clear. so far no problems no overheating.
