OK, I removed the interference in the fan shroud. What I cut out was about 1/8” x 1/4”. The GTX 760 now goes into the connector and the latch snaps closed. However, it can rock a bit towards the cooler or away. That’s a bit surprising, but I don’t remember how it fit in the Z87N motherboard previously. @pastrychef Is this a problem? When the end plate is attached to the case it will be stabilized, but I wonder if all pins in the connector will be engaged...
I’ve installed the Fenvi WiFi/BT card in the x4 slot. The 1_1 slot is covered by the double width graphics card. In the 1_2 slot the card is very close to one fan on the graphics card. That might interfere with the air flow into the fan. Looks like the x4 slot is it...
It's not uncommon for the video card to slack a bit. Once it is screwed to the the case, it should be fine.
The Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card should be small enough not to block too much airflow to the GPU fan. In fact, I like that it helps bring a bit of air through the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card. I use the last slot for my 10GBase-T card.
