Will a 1660 Super fit in and work with the Shire MB?

I would like to put in a 3rd party 1660 Super but was wondering if it would fit the case and be compatible with the SHire MB.

@yobo2019 

The specifications on the HP 875-1040st, as shown here.   You can replace it.

In a real world situation, I would suggest you turn it off. Pull the power cord. Open/remove the side panel.

Cut a piece of heavy stock card board 4.3 inch high, and 10.0 inches long.  Measure it against your existing card. How much length do you have presently, and is there any more length available.  If too long, cut 1/2 inch and repeat until you have the maximum length.

Now you have the length of whatever GPU card would fit.

What is the point of cutting card stock... I was just making sure HP didn't do something with the specs of the case and card as opposed to the standards... Why not just measure instead of cutting card stock for literally no reason... *BLEEP*

@yobo2019,

Your original inquiry asked if a third party GTX 1660 would fit.  I asked you to measure backed on your VAGUE inquiry.

 

BYE.

I don't think it was too vague. I asked if a 3rd party GPU would work with the MB as I know some things are made for OEM parts and I asked about a random 1660 as most have standardized sizes for the important parts such as the distance for the IO side. I was just wanting to make sure HP didn't make some change that would prevent a standard swap. I don't think any of that warrants arts and crafts. A simple "measure it" would have even done. Starting to talk about cutting card stock to find size seems a bit overkill and inaccurate. 

 

And in the great words of Wb2001 "BYE" 🙂
