What are the dimensions of the Apple //e Motherboard?

I'm new around these parts, so why no start with an odd question? I've got a crazy idea but I need to know if the //e mobo will fit.  I figure a bunch of you probably have nekkid motherboards around and could dash off two measurments for me.  So would you kindly?

 

TIA.

It shows the dimensions to be 246.38mm x 300.35mm (aka 9.7" x 11.82")

The old NTSC board has the Aux slot near the left edge of the board, the smaller international and PAL boards have it in line with slot 3 so they are easy to tell apart.

While I'm at it, how about this video ROM?
