Which Radeon RX for my Dell T5600?

Hello,

which Radeon RX (570,580,590) can I put inside my Dell T5600? Space is so tight, considering the lateral cover and RX card are higher than pci slot.

Thanks,

Mario

Hi @mgiammarco ,

Rule number one: Always check on official manual whenever you want a hardware upgrade.

Check out T5600 Techincal Guide and it stated maximum PCI card height at 4.38"/11.13cm. The card you quoted at 12.75cm height. It won't fit.

Further googled on AMD, MSI, XFX and Gigabyte and seems non of their 570/580/590 models fits. Maybe you have to look for a low-profile one. 

Or maybe you can take a look for new Geforce cards like RTX 2070? Refer to this thread I answered before, those from Zotac height at 11.3Xcm could be just fit! RTX new cards support the latest ray tracking technology, and even support FreeSYNC monitor now!!! Voilà~ (Sounds like I'm a Nvidia promoter... XD)

Thank you for your detailed reply!

Infact now I have also checked my current graphic card and it is 111mm high.

My problem is that I do not need it for games, I have already an nvidia gtx960 I need to try radeon chipset for ROCm.

So I have found this one:

It should fit I will try.

Yup, this one at 112mm fits. And it's a 150w GPU with single 6pin power socket, should be fine as well with T5600 default 635w PSU.
