Default Asus GTX 670 Mini

This card is SICK.

I think we all knew that GTX 670 could've been smaller (as heatsink/fan sticks out further than the PCB.) But to have Asus manufacture a smaller sized card like this. It's quite a feat.

I wish they had chosen to make the card a tiny bit longer and low profile form factor.

Now someone make a GTX 650 Ti/Radeon 7770 or higher. in a low profile form factor that I can put into a HTPC chassis.

I want my HTPC box to look like a thick DVD player not a monstrous receiver size.

I'm just curious whether or not the noise levels are quiet enough at such a small form.

Should be as the 670 was very cool running anyway and stock 670 cooler was ridiculously small / cheap.
Also if for HTPC, the card will be less stressed and should be in-audible for light gaming / media playing.

I like this card. Hopefully it will be priced right especially with the 7 series coming soon.

Is the PCB the same size as the reference 670's or is it even smaller?
