5770 Passive (GV-R577SL-1GD) Need to know the size (spatial)
« on: October 24, 2010, 02:32:05 pm »
Hi!!!
I really can't find anywere.....what are the OFFICIAL dimensions of the passive 5770? I mean the spatial size (not memory, but spatial: width,highness,deepness) to know if it can fit in my case.

Where cai I read them? Even in the manual downlowdable from the website, it doesn't tell nothing about it).

I need to ask before boying it, because it's clear that the card is bigger than the average!

Thank you!!!

I understand your problem and it is something I have tried to find out  before for members but there is nowhere I can find the information. I really can't understand why Gigabyte don't include it with their list of specs or in the manual. I think your best bet is to send a question to GGTS.

Ok, thanks.
Maybe someone else is interested, Gigabyte answered me with what I needed, I'll paste here the answere, for everyone!:

thank you for your kindly mail and inquiry. About the issue you mentioned, the size of GV-R577SL-1GD is H=39,L=275,W= 150mm.

It doesn't fit in my case, it's too huge!!! :-(

Thanks for passing on the information. The cards are huge now in comparison to the cards a few years ago. I have suggested in a memo that they should include the dimensions in the manual and on the website so hopefully sometime in the future someone might take notice ;)

Yeah!!! You did a good thing too then with that suggestion,thanks!! Let's only hope that they will add it!

You know, because of the dimensions of this card, I need to find another one, so I thought about a GTX 460 (double fan gigabyte of course)....well, I needed to open a new question in the tecnical support for its dimensions too!

You would think that including the dimensions would be standard procedure. It shouldn't need us to tell Gigabyte and other's to include them in the specifications.  :o
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

If it's any help it is the same size as the nVidea reference card.

Well if you are right of course it is a helpful answere :-) (Thank you!!)
So, the reference Nvidia is 111mm x 210mm dual slot, if the gigabyte is the same, it's small enough for me!!!:-)

Thank you, however they answered me!!! (tecnical support is very very fast, well done).

Here's the answere about The GTX 460 (GV-N460OC-1GI)

Thank you for your kindly mail and inquiry. About the issue you mentioned, the size of GV-N460OC-1GI is H=43, L=238 , W=130 mm.

so...what do you think? from that answere it seems the gigabyte it's a bit bigger than the reference one (from your images they seems quite the same size).

Can I trust theyr answere? I hope so :-)

Well they seem to give conflicting answers and there are  about four different models although I would have thought that the underlying cards would have all been the same. To play safe I would go with their answer and err on the side of caution. I haven't got access to one to measure it I'm afraid.

I have just taken some measurements off the photos and it would appear the Gigabyte card is slightly longer than the reference one. It isn't a huge difference from my measurements but it is there.

I have just posted the sizes in your other post but thought I would also put them here.

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

Hope these help. ;)

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