Installing NVIDIA GTX1060 on HPZ230 Tower PC

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)


Hi all,

 

I am currently a university student. My final year project requires me to have a good Graphic card, so I am going to install a good graphic card (GTX1060) on the HPz230 Tower computer of my school. Unfortunately because I cannot take the computer to outside school, I cannot make sure that the GPU will fit into the computer case.

From my measurement it is ok to install, but the thing is there are some capacitors on the board that may block the GPU (image below) if I installed it on. Is this possible for me to install such GPU to the computer?

Here is the smallest size GTX1060 that I found:

Power: 120W
Card size H=37 L=169 W=131 mm

 

This is the HP document for the PC:
