I'm trying to determine what is the best (in terms of highest attainable MHash/s ) non-double width card?

What is the thinnest card if you account for the heatsink/fan?

Thanks!

Just of note, for mining those cards are terrible MHash/$. If you are getting them for gaming though, more power to ya.

the 6850 is $80 more expensive than a normal double slot one.

the 6990 is $170 more expensive than a normal one. (though it is a watercooled unit, which is worth something).

I was hoping for a more "technical" reason...  What are the expected hashing rates of the water-cooled 6990 vs. double-slot 6990?

Because you're paying more. You could buy more video cards with the extra money thus get more power.

You could buy a gold encrusted 6990 for 10k, sure it gets the same performance but the point is you're wasting money.

Great resale value, though.

I wasn't asking for an economics lesson.  My question is about technical differences.  Is the PowerColor LCS AX6990 capable of same hashing rates as a regular dounle-slot 6990?  Are there differences in hashing capabilities?

My guess would be that since it's water cooled, if you have a decent water cooling system you should potentially be able to overclock it further than a regular card, so that could allow for more mhashes. No idea how far it can be overclocked though as I don't have one.

I lol'd hard!

@Canaryinthemine
You may have problems with temperatures on those cards (ok not on the 6990...), that might make you turn the oc down -> less MH/s. Also since you want single slot I assume you only have one slot free i.e. these cards will suffocate even more. the only good solution is a WC loop.

water cooled cards are also single slot

They are NOT single slot.

If you get a double and put a water block on it it's still double.  You just have less overhead.

The water cooled 6990 linked to in this thread is definitely single slot. If you take a regular double slot card and convert it to water cooling then you're right, but pre-made water cooled cards like the one linked are absolutely single slot, just look at the picture on Newegg.

IMHO to be able to connect watter in/out lets, you need to space them as if it were double-slot cards.

Now that's something I didn't think of. I was just going by the fact that it only uses up one case slot in the picture. You're probably right though.
