What are the internal PCI-X dimensions in a PCI Expansion blade?

I have a large PCI-X card with the following dimensions.

Height 106.68mm +/- 0.127mm
Depth (including retainer) 340.74mm +/- 1.57mm
Depth (excluding retainer) 312mm +/- 0.127mm

Does anyone know if this will fit inside the PCI Expansion blade, I can only find external dimensions?

Thanks

IIRC there was written about 2 "full length" cards somewhere in the documentation - there is really space enough.

Hope this helps!

"NOTE: The PCI Expansion blade will accept full-height/full-length PCI-X cards "

And if Wikipedia is correct about the dimensions (I am assuming they are inherited from PCI) then this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripheral_Component_Interconnect#Physical_card_dimensions

suggests that your card should fit. If your card is indeed that large, that suggests many components, which suggests a fair bit of power - the quickspecs already referenced by Torsten show 25 Watts per slot.
