    Great review for this small card! I’m wondering if the shroud and fans are removed, will this gpu fit single slot pcie? The fans from the case would be approximately 5 cm from the exposed radiator grill, blowing air in, directly to the grill… In need to fit a small pcie x1 in the slot next to this gpu, and a 2 slot gpu would block that pcie slot

    After putting it in a single slot in my 1u chassis the cooler is still larger than a single slot. It’s probably around 1 1/2 slot size.

    thanks for sharing Owen… i ended up buying the card and using it in first slot, closest to the cpu, then i used a 1x pcie extension cable to install my usb card…

  • Game craze
