Thank you! haha Backplate made ZERO difference. It's the shroud that's actually the problem. Backplate fits fine. It's the XC3 Ultra. I assume the black will fit the same as all the others. The shroud barely fits and so the fans are right up against the side panel.
Thanks man. Total chance of the draw. I struck out at microcenter, newegg, and almost gave up on EVGA.com. It randomly loaded for me :/ It looks like it has shipped and will be here Tuesday. Hopefully I'll have some good news for DAN users.
So I actually bought it for a friend whom was not going to be able to be online to buy. He said if I end up with one to use it til my til my 3090 shows up. -- I'm actually gunning for a 3090. He agreed to let me test it on my dan case though.
