    I want to know what's the shortest HD 7970 as i plan to upgrade mines. My case is a Cooler Master Storm Scout and only supports cards up to 10.6". I googled this question but got no answer.

    You'll need a non-reference card if you're looking for something short. Maybe that will help your search?

    I have that card in my system right now... The only thing I don't like about it is it doesn't have heatsinks for the VRM/RAM (Are those really needed?)... I maxed out the sliders on CCC for OC and it ran stable although I'm only running at stock at the moment... I never really tried tinkering the card to see at what clocks it maxes out... :)

    Maybe you should look into a different case so you're not limiting yourself on what hardware you can buy?
