I saw a review stating it was well over the mfctr spec of 9.8". Can anyone confirm the actual length of this card?

Do you own this card? As I posted, Sapphire support notified me that it is 11".

if so then ...  Dimensions =  249(L)x123(W)x48(H) mm Size  .
 
.. so that makes it 9.8+" long

Wait. I thought that had the same pcb of the toxic making it 11 inches long.

Yes, that's the card. Can you confirm that it is <10"? There appears to be a mistake in the dimensions that are posted all over the internet. Sapphire has confirmed this by stating that the card is actually 11".

I'm pretty sure it's 11.

Edit: OCN seems to be having problems with quoting now....

9.8 inches is incorrect. The card is about 11" long.

XBit's review specifies the length at 270mm, or about 10.6 inches.
