Hi to all.

Sorry for mi bad English.

According to Wikipedia, the PCI standard defines full height for a PCI card as 10.7 cm (4.2 in) including the card edge connector, and full length as 31.2 cm (12.283 in).

I have this information.

But on of my customers say to me, that a PCI card with 6.875 In x 4.2In not fit in a DL380G5.

I can´t test it yet.

Thanks.

not only size matters

Cards requiring 3.3 volts have a notch 56.21mm from the front of the card (where the external connectors are) while those requiring 5 volts have a notch 104.47mm from the front of the card. So called "Universal cards" have both key notches and can accept both types of signal.
