Default 6970 size question

Not sure if this is quite the right palce but here goes ...

I was wondering if anyone knows, preferably through experience if the ASUS Radeon HD 6970 DirectCU II(ASUS Radeon HD 6970 DirectCU II) will fit in an Antec P182 case without requiring case mods?

I'd avoid it just due to the fact that I had 2, count them 2, of those who ran into the rattling fan syndrome for nearly all the fans (3 out of 4). I've read others having issues with the fans becoming loud overtime on the 580 DirectCU II as well. If I were you, I'd go with a different 6970, or risk what I ran into.

Arinoth thanks for the heads up. Deafinitely something to consider. One of the attractions was that this was supposed to be fairly quiet for a 6970 (without aftermarket cooling). Guess I'll have to keep looking.

PS - sorry for the bold above, not sure what happened there.
