Does my 2.5 slot card fit into a "2 slot" device?
I am interested in buying an eGPU and have been looking at a few of them. Specifically, I am looking at the Sonnet 550 ( https://www.amazon.com/Sonnet-eGFX-Breakaway-550W-GPU-550W-TB3/dp/B0764J5QVD ) and PowerColor Gaming Station ( https://www.newegg.com/powercolor-model-gaming-station/p/N82E16814131735 ).
These are both around the same price (both currently 250$) and thats around the price range I would like to spend on an eGPU. However, both of these are listed as "2 Slot" housings and my GPU (Zotac GTX 1070ti AMP extreme) is listed as a 2.5 slot card (the fan protrudes out a bit more). Since visually (through the product image) it looks like theres a similar amount of space for the GPU to something like the Razer Core X. I was wondering if anyone owned one of these eGPUs or knows if I can get one of these "2 Slot" eGPUs or do I need to get a "3 slot" like the Razer Core X? Thank you for your help!
