    I was wondering if anyone knows weather a power colour RX 480 will fit inside a Mac Pro?

    I know it's a long card (12.2 inches) wondered if anyone's tried it?

    THank's allot

    Thanks for the link.

    And I didn't realise that it might not work, do you think it'd be okay through bootcamp?
    I presumed the actual mechanics of the card would be the same in all the iterations so I thought it'd work, as the reference model would.

    And yes, the design is awesome, isn't it :)

    Do you think it'll work in a Mac pro with boot camp?

    According to the specs, the card is 310mm, it should not fit as there is a bit less than 310mm between the PCI fan and the PCI slots. (~12,20inches)

    At 3:39, you can see the board with a ruler. I think it's safe to say the card is about ~300mm so it should fit with a clearance >10mm (>0,3937 inches)

    would that be an okay clearance? Will it actually function properly?
    Cheers
