    That is the mythic card from the ages! It looks like it might just fit. I'd scale up a photo of it, print it lifesize and see if it clears everything. Then you just have to hope the card can draw enough power without throttling too badly.

    Even if it would fit, would be power throttled in near any machine you would want to use it in

    It has a TDP of 150W allegedly, my 1070 gets to 135W easily during gaming so I thought perhaps the 330W brick will be enough?

    You would have to see what power draw is possible with the R2. Might have to pore through the overclocking threads to see if either there is a maximum from a single MXM in the R2 or maybe a kind soul will repost.

    From memory it's either 180W per mxm port or 220W, hence why I thought it would work, but I am not 100% sure.
