What's the exact length of these cards, according to Sapphire the length of the Dual X is 28 cm but 1 person on newegg claims it's 28,8 and as for the Vapor X, according to the spec page it says 28,5 cm while the 6 gb versions are noted as 27,5.

I have exactely 28 cm space.

I need your measurements pls.

Thanks,

Prog

With 28cm, could you remove the HDD bays and make additional space, may be the person was inferring that it with the GPU power connections

Im afraid not, 28 cm is def the max. I tried clarifying with Sapphire support but al they could do was link me the spec pages that i gave them in the first place.

I just measured my 7970 DualX and it comes in at around 28.5cm in slot due to the shroud sticking out so much at the back.....

Are you sure you can't remove the HDD bays? If the case doesn't support that and you're okay with it, you can try hardmodding your case yourself to remove the HDD bay I believe such a thing was possible.
Also with 7970 and a 3770k, you might want to change the PSU you have if you're gonna overclock. The 450W will probably be enough for both of them overclocked but it'll be pushed to its limits most likely.

The HDD bay is non removable, sure i can tear the thing off with a saw but if i wanted to do any extra work id just get a new case but for now i just want the best possible 7970 that fits.

Can someone measure their 7970 Ghz Vapor X pls?

I got these cheeseburgers man.
