M720 or M920 SFF with PCIe Card

I am looking for the smallest, most compact PC that will accept a Half Height full length PCI card. As I've looked at the M720 and M920 SFF product I see that it has options for PCIe Video cards. I want to insert an "industrial network" PCIe card

 

Can anyone confirm for me - online chat could not - if the following will work fit into these units? heck if you have a better suggestion, I'm listening.

 

The card is:

80(H)×18.5(W)×181(D)[mm] 

 

This is the requirement:

ompliant with PCI Express standard Rev.1.1 (3.3 VDC, Link width 1 lane, Reference clock 100 MHz) 

 

Thank you for your assistance.

 

Dale

A 181 mm card won't fit a SFF:  M910s M920s SFF: M.2 SSD and graphics surprises/problems (SOLVED: M910t with GTX 1050 installed)

 

Also, ThinkCentres tend to have a fairly restrictive BIOS when it comes to recognizing unusual PCIe cards.  Your card may fit in a Tower, but not be recognized.

Thank you. From that post I see it's going to need to be in the 146mm range. Dang it. But thanks.
