GTX470 vs GTX275 length

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i just read the nvidia site and they said 470 is 9.5in (is that the same as teh 465?) and they said 275 is 10.5in. Are these measurments really correct? Becaue if so then i will be very pleased because than means the card will fit in my case in front of my HDD's.

Yes for the pcb, an after market cooler or one fitted by another manufacturer may over hang the edge a bit and add some length.

Both are reference, So the 470 is the same length as the 465, and both are only 9.5in?

Also if a GTX465 has 10 mem chips and is black PCB does that mean its a guarenteed unlock?

That is correct, I have an actual gtx470, and a PNY 465 I unlocked to be a 470 and the reference pcb is the same on both.

I've heard of some instances where they didn't, but those are few and far between. Chances are very good if it has 10 chips, although sometimes the unlocked ones will have memory speed issues, probably why they were binned as 465's in the first place.
