Unfortunately we cannot add this case at this time because of unique compatibility requirements such as those with video card power connectors.
This is not an issue on the MK ii ghost as there are multiple mounting points for the power supply unit and ample clearance for the power connectors to be routed anywhere they need to go. The PSU can even be mounted upside down if necessary. Besides, there are already listings for other cases with even more unique compatibility requirements such as the Dan A4. It isn't going to be possible to flag every compatibility issue every time but that doesn't mean you should just completely ignore such a popular component.
It is an issue with the MK II.
Additionally, it's not a matter of how unique a compatibility requirement is. It's a matter of whether it's one we can reasonably model around.
Not adding it doesn't mean we're "completely ignoring" it. That's an utter misrepresentation of what we're doing.
In dondan's post he specifically mentions many models of 2080 and 2080 ti such as the ROG Strix which are incompatible with the A4 and aren't marked as incompatible on pcpartpicker. Seems like a double standard to me.
The issue is that their specs aren't accurately detailed enough. One example, is that they list 144mm as the max height for GPUs, yet a 142mm card requires a 90 degree bracket on the PCIE power to be compatible.
We'd love to add the case but simply can't do so at this time and be confident in the compatibility modeling for the case based on the manufacturer's specifications.
We also recently updated our case modelling to better handle width restrictions on GPUs. If you are seeing cases where they should be marked incompatible please make a different post with those details.
But the Dan A4 specs aren't detailed enough ether. Another example from the A4 is there are GTX 10xx series cards which are listed as compatible but are only compatible with the side panel removed. You could make the requirement 140mm or something if you wanted and then people who are planning to use a 90 degree pcie power connector could just turn the compatibility filter off.
