    Im Working on building a Mobile Gaming rig using a Mini ITX board but im not sure if components will fit together.

    I want to use:
    This Board
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157312
    With this Heatsink
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103177
    In this Box
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163212

    Now i know all of this will fit together but i dont know if the Aftermarket heat sink will interfere with a large video card. I have seen this build work with this fan but they were using an AMD board and processor, and it seems the AMD chip is located slightly farther away from the PCI express slot.

    I dont know if anyone can help but i would really appreciate some help before i BUy (or dont buy) the stuff!!

    For reference im planning on using a Radeon HD 7870 as the GPU

    Thanks for any help i can get!!
