Because I saw a build where he did (whilst using a 6850), and wondered if that was luck, or a slightly off case.

However, as we said in the review, it does then overlap it, so you'd need to remove the graphics card in order to get the top 3.5in cage in and out...

GTX690 is 28cm. So you got 0,5cm space left :D. That is if you will use a front mounted radiator. If not, then without issues, as your pump will probably fit fine bellow the card (see the pic of my Prodigy) :
