Ok quiet and all is all nice and fine.. but what about the length of these cards. Do they still over-reach the mainboard? I had to specifically look around for one that doesn't for my case setup (which is, to say it mildly, packed) and no GPU can ever reach even a mm over the mainboard (and especially when the power connector goes "back" out, instead of "top" out...

Well that would depend on your motherboard wouldn't it? Like if its ATX, BTX, ITX, or the mini/micro versions of them.

Fortunately places like newegg specify the card size if the manufacture provides it.

Looks like its 10" long.

Since you didn't specify your maximum size, I'll let you handle the rest.

I'm so glad I chose a nice roomy case when I did my computer, so I don't ever have to worry about anything like card length.
