I'm pretty certain the tallest point on the board is not actually the
heatsink, but the 3-port analog audio header on the back of it.
Those are usually right around 1.75 - 1.85 inches, so, I don't see any
way you could get it into anything less than that in height.
The other ports on the back aren't much shorter in size, so even
without the analog audio ports, it will still be well over 1 inch in
Call Zotac and ask them exactly what it is, since they don't specify
it on their site.
