Hi there,
I'm sure that someone have this card, the famous GTX 460 1GB double Fan (GV-N460OC-1GI).
Can you measure its dimensions and tell me? I don't care about the heigth, but I need to know the precise length and width!!!

I found that they are H=43, L=238 , W=130 mm, but if you see my other post...we are not sure, if someone have it can confirm or say the truth?

Thank you!!!

P.S About the length, please specify if you start measuring from the PCB or if you are including also the back connector for example, it's important to be precise!

Thanks, I'll be waiting for an answere from you (but did you request from the Tecnical Support or where?)

And of course, for anyone that HAVE this card in its case, I'll be waiting from an answere from you too!!!

Thanks to everyone ;)

Oh I don't blame you for getting the answer from wherever you can. Yes it was our UK Technical Support that I asked. Normaly I can get an answer from them fairly quickly.

The sooner the better, and the more accurate the better too :-)

Did you ask to specify from where to where they'll give the measurement? Because I don't always know if they'll include all the length (connector on the back included) or only the part starting from the PCB!

I think it is overall dimensions but I will check when I get the answer.

If you don't have an answer by tomorrow after I get back from an appointment, I'll open my case back up and measure for you.

It is quite a long card and connecting my corsair 650watt psu to the rear of it add's another 10mm, but it just fits in my antec 300 case, even with a hdd directly behind it.
I'll even post a pic to show you how closse it is :)

Thank you too friend, your support will be very appreciated!!!! I know it's quite long, that's why I need accurate measurements, because I have space...but iI think I'm quite at the limit!!!!

Hi

I have received the information you required and am just asking if these measuerments are overall totally (which I am sure they are)

GV-N470SO-13I: H=42.5, L=291.1, W=126.9 mm
GV-N460OC-1GI: H=43, L=238 , W=130 mm

Hope this helps
 ;)

EDIT: I have just received confirmation that these sizes are external and total.

My son has confirmed that the measurements are:

approx: L - 220mm (measured from edge of pcb to the end of the 6pin power connector's)
            W - 125mm actual card, I am guessing that the extra 50mm is to allow air intake for the fans.




Hope this help's.

Thank you very much to BOTH of you :-)

Your informations are very helpful!!!! And they are accurate of course :-)
You two have just confirmed me that the card is going to fit properly in my not so big case!!!
Thanks for the photos too!

I'm happy, and in a few hours I'm going to order the card without problems!!!

P.S. does the card require two Power connectors or are they only suggested? (is one enough? I ask because I should order one connector maybe).

Bye!

I presume it requires two, as my son uses two on this card as seen in the photo.

The card come's complete with two 4pin molex to 6pin power adapter's, so no need to order anything extra.

It also requires at least a 450w PSU, But I'd say 500w minimum so you have enough power to supply more than one or two hdd's.
A friend of my sons uses a 530w Hiper psu and my son use's a 650w Corsair one with absolutley no problems at all running the card, fans, 3 hdd's etc....

I will hand this account over to him, as it is his card and he will be of more use for all this technical stuff than myself. I only created the account to help with another quiery.
So all corresponding information will be from him.

Kind regards.

Only too glad to be of assistance. I am still waiting to hear if they are going to follow up my suggestion of adding this information to the specs list and manual as with the motherboards. ;)

Yeah!!! They SHOULD listen to your suggestion, Dark Mantis! So many people are asking about Gigabyte dimensions (I noticetd that googling these days :-)
They are not so smart if don't listen to you!

Thank you Nero (or son of Nero maybe :-) ).
Well...I have a 380W PSU, but I asked in some italian forums and many people told me that it should be enough, since it is a Seasonic S12-II, and have two +12V lines, each one providing 17Ampere....let's hope it will be enough!!!

Regarding the PSU, Seasonic is one of the best makes no doubt about that but I would still worry about a 380W  PSU powering your system especially with a 460 GPU. I hope for your sake I am wrong but I doubt it. :-\
