Would a Mini GPU work with my Motherboard?

I have a case that is slightly too small for the GPU I'm looking at (GTX 760) but I saw a "mini" version for the same GPU... I don't know if it will work with my micro ATX motherboard (geared for the full sized gpu). I also don't know how different the smaller GPU is from the full sized one...Would the smaller GPU work with my motherboard just as well?
My motherboard is:

This is the MSI Mini ITX GTX 760

Thanks

  1. It would work fine with your motherboard, but it's the same height as the other 760s. You probably need a low profile GPU it sounds like. What kind of case do you have?
  2. The full sized GPUs kinda fit, but I'm not willing to risk it... The Mini GPU would definately fit, my case is here (with different internals):

  3. Oh, are you talking about length wise? I thought you were talking about height, my bad. Yeah, that card will definitely fit. It will be a tad slower and run hotter than the normal 760, but will still be quite powerful :)
  4. Ah, ok. So it'll be compatible with my motherboard?

    Oh yeah. The only thing different about it is it's not as long, and has a single fan. The interface is the same :)

    If you manage to fit another fan in though it would be a lot cooler!!!
