    Says on there that its a custom PCB, it looks shorter than the ref to me like, probably why its got the power connectors on the back instead of the side, if not, then you are going to need about 15 inches to fit it :D

    EDIT: Says in the comments that lexus [rhyming :p], said that it is shorter than the ref design, hope so, i may be able to fit this one if so. :D

    I'll take 2 please

    If my aquaintance at Sapphire ever gets back to me I should be able to lay my grubby mits on one of these. Think he's sick of my continual 'can I have one yet?' emails but I'm sure he'll come good. Will post on here if he does!

    I have it on good authority that these could be as little as 2-3 weeks away...

    I don't suppose anyone has an ETA?

    Or Fatboy, do you have an idea of when we'll see these?

    Can't be far off if a certain site is giving one out as a prize.
