And we'll say this right from the out­set, this is an ex­cel­lent mini-ITX card. Af­ter all, at just six inches long, it is so com­pact that it fits onto a mini-ITX moth­er­board with ab­so­lutely zero over­hang.

The Nano's cool­ing sys­tem com­prises a dual

va­por cham­ber de­sign with flat ther­mal heat­pipes, in­clud­ing a ded­i­cated heatsink and heat­pipe for cool­ing the VRM com­po­nents. The flat heat­pipes ac­tu­ally take up

less space within the heatsink, thus en­abling the Nano's com­pact de­sign. They also help in­crease the to­tal sur­face area avail­able for heat dis­si­pa­tion. The metal plate that cov­ers the PCB pro­vides some pas­sive cool­ing, but a sin­gle 90mm fan does most of

The card re­quires only a sin­gle 8-pin PCIe con­nec­tor.
