how big is it?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
i need a new card for my now almost done computer. my only limitation is the length. a uATX mobo is 9.6" and thats all the space i have. how long is the 4850 & 4870? i was looking at the 3870x2 but that is 100% out of the question due to length.

there exactly the same lenght the cards are around 9 inches but the power connector is attached to the back so you need to add another inch or so to allow for the power connector, so id say roughly 10 inches in all

p.s there also quite wide especially the 4870 and 3870 because they take up 2 ports on the back.

I'm pretty sure my 4850 is 8.5" long and I think I read somewhere the 4870 is 9.5".

if the card is 9.6" and the power connector is another 1" ill re-solder the damn thing. ive already got about 15hours of machining done on my case whats another 20min? i just want this thing done already! im getting ready to make my order for a new mobo, cpu & ram. I got all my stuff picked out but im kinda thinking of going to DDR3 but i cant seem to find a mobo that fits all the specs i need... we'll see, ill be sure to post pics and benchmarks when all is said and done

If you really need a bit more room.... mount the rad to the case and use only one 120x25mm fan on the CPU-side to suck in air. If you have room, you can use a 100x12mm fan on the GPU-side of the rad.

good luck finding a really high end board in uATX

Definitely post some pics when this is done though, if you've fit a water loop in there... then that's just downright impressive

oh, the water loop is in. i tested it out on a lapped 3600+ with a cheap biostar mobo. load temps at 2.8ghz didnt get above about 35c. due to fsb limitations on that mobo i couldnt get it OCed any higher. here is whats in the case along with pictures...

case -Lian Li V350
block - Dtec Fuzion
res - swiftech micro res
rad - BlackICE2 240mm
pump - Swiftech MCP655




The setup has been cleaned up quite a bit since this picture, the pump was mounted to the case cover, extra power supply cables were de-soldered and excessive length was trimmed from everything else. and yes it does fit!





and here is the side of the case where the res what fitted for viewing pleasure!


and i did find a ASUS uATX mobo thats rated at 140w so....
