Shrink Way Wielder

Ah yeah, you're right. The Galax site wasn't working for me earlier, but now I can see they give both the measurement with and without the bracket. For M1 compatibility I use the dimensions without the bracket, so that's what we're interested in. Sans bracket they give 285*127*52mm, so length/thickness are just barely within the range of what fits with the front I/O ports in place. The height is okay, except that the PCIe power connectors are not recessed so it only leaves 13mm to the side panel. That's going to be a real tight fit with standard connectors; low profile adapters might be required here.Judging by the pictures:
I would say that the 143 mm datum is based on the height including pci bracket, it looks shorter than eg. EVGA FTW cards that are 140mm tall.
