    Over maximum slot height, double-slot cooler, and the card is longer than an FE card.

    Well done Asus, good job, you've made your 'mini' card larger than stock! AND dropped a DP output for absolutely no good reason!

    Ah, I'd been converting to mm and fudged something somewhere for the length. The rest of the dimensions re still pretty poor though, and as you say there are shorter cards available already.

    We need small cards, but these aren't that.

    Small cards would be bus-powered half-height-half-length cards, or single-slot cards (either stock WC without needing to physically cut off a DVI port from the back panel, or single-slot air like the Galax Katana cards), or half-length cards that do not go overheght or occupy "two-and-a-half" slots etc.

    mm or bust! cm are a bizarre cludge that breaks the 10^3 separation standard for all other units. Nobody uses hectolitres or centivolts!
