Thank you for sharing this deal @nando4. This enclosure would be very nice to run as an open chassis.

I guess you could just put in a single slot 75W card like the Inno3D 1050 Ti or the Quadro P2000 for that matter. Alas, the Inno3DB is 8.3" long but I wonder whether those fans could be swapped for something thinner and quieter. Would anyone know how thick are the ones in there? Noctua has a nice 10mm one after all. Or would it be fine to just drop them completely if you run the chassis open anyways.

RTX 2070 FE is 9" long by 4.5" tall. It seems like a perfect candidate for this open chassis (≈ 9.6" x 5.5" interior space).
