i came across a seller willing to sell their OEM RTX 3070 from HP.
i was wondering if it could work on my Aurora R11.
10th Gen Intel Core i9 10900F (10-Core, 20MB Cache, 2.8GHz to 5.2GHz w/Thermal Velocity Boost)
Dark Side of the Moon chassis with High-Performance CPU Liquid Cooling with and 1000W Power Supply
32GB Dual Channel HyperX(FM) FURY DDR4 XMP at 2933MHz
NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 SUPER 8GB GDDR6 (OC Ready)
thank you for all your help!

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.
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.
