thegrommit is still being judged by the masses


Default How long are the Sapphire Vapor-X cards?

Specifically the 4870 and 4890 versions? I can't stand the racket from ATI's reference cooler, so am wondering if one of these would fit into my case (Antec P150).

doesnt the sapphire site state?

if it's a reference PCB just with a new cooler, then it should be same length right

or you could just add your own cooler if you already have a 4870/90

No, it does not, and it hasn't been mentioned in any reviews I've seen.

My estimate is that it's 10" long based on the size of the PCI-e connector, but it would be nice to get confirmation.

IIRC, it's almost exactly the same size as the motherboard, so 9.5 inches. Height is about 4.3 inches. That is the 4870 version.

The power connectors will face forward to the front of the case, so the power connectors may interfere with a drive bay in some cases.

I own a P150 and was able to fit in the Asus 9800+ Dark Knight, which is about the longest damn card I've ever worked with. A few days ago I upgraded to a Sapphire 4890 Toxic, and it's the same size, if not a little bit shorter, than the 9800+.

So I can vouch for the 4890, or at least the Toxic, fitting in the P150. The power connects may extend into that specific harddrive bay though.
