    Would an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 with iCX fit in a Razer Core v2? I know the GTX 1080 Ti chipset is definitely compatible, I'm just wondering about physical size here.

    That card is around 269mm in length, and 118mm high, and the core fits anything with a length of 300mm or less and a height of 145mm or less, so yes it should fit just fine with a bit of room, not being squat up.

    Thanks for the reply! Slightly more complicated question: Will the wattage requirements of the card be compatible with the core?

    Here are the stats I've found...

    Card's Max Power Draw: 250 Watts
    Card's Recommended Power Supply: 600 Watts

    Core's GPU Max Power Support: 375 Watts
    Core's Internal Power Supply 500 Watts

    The card's max power draw is definitely below the Core's GPU Max Power Support, which would suggest it is compatible, but the card's recommended power supply is higher than the internal power supply of the core. Would it still be compatible? I've read that the card manufacturer is assuming that the power supply is powering an entire system, whereas I assume that the core's power supply is only powering the GPU and any connected devices.

    Thanks again!

    As long as you would not be overclocking the card it should be good, and one question, what Blade are you using this with? (Most importantly, what CPU do you have)? You would want to avoid a bottleneck if possible.
    This person managed to squeeze a 1080Ti in a Razer Core, you might just want to read his post on it.

    I've got a 2017 Blade Stealth, not the more recent quad core version (got it this August, sort of bummed to have just missed the quad core), so bottlenecking is definitely something I've been worrying about. Do you think a 1070 or 1070ti would be a smarter choice? Thanks for the link to the post btw

    Is that the I5 or I7 model? With the I5 and a external GPU with a laptop CPU, you might get bottleneck, maybe a little tiny with that I7 too but I am not sure. I would go with a 1070Ti or a 1080 just to be on the safe side of things anyways, you wouldn't want to break anything or find out the core does not have the power you need :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

    It's the I7, so hopefully less of a bottleneck risk, but I'll definitely look into 1070Ti and 1080 cards (and see if anyone's used a 1080Ti with the blade stealth). Thanks for all the advice!

    Oh yeah, the I7 should not bottleneck anything unless you put like a titan xp in the core :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.
    But yeah, I would look at 1070Ti's and 1080's. You might be able to get a used one if someone near you is selling one, that would work just fine with the Core.

    Jenjar it's me again would this core able to support my 400 watt gpu as long as I don't overclock it ?

    No, its max gpu Watt is 375. I tried fury r9 strix which has 375 Watt gpu i think (didn’t though how high it’s since idk a lot about red team) and it’s fine.
