    Hi,

    I have upgraded to 13600kf with new mainboard, cooler, ... and dont have a new GPU yet
    • gigabyte z690 ud ddr4 [new]
    • be quiet dark rock pro 4 [new]
    • gtx 1080 with Accelero Xtreme IV [old]

    distance from pci 16x to cooler: ~2cm
    [​IMG]

    distance from gpu pci to backplate end: ~2.5cm
    [​IMG]

    Ok, so my
    • cpu cooler is too wide
    • the pci slot is too close to the cpu socket
    • the gpu cooler on backplate is too fat

    Lets assume I want to buy a new GPU. How can I check which GPU has a backplate, thin enough -> less than 2cm?

    GPUs usually give total thickness.

    Can I assume ALL GPUs with non-custom cooling have a backplate less than 2cm?

    Your GPU has the Arctic Accelero Xtreme 4, it came with a giant backplate to cool the VRM and VRam.

    No GPU has such backplates, it was a thing for aftermarket heatsinks.
