I have one of those er smaller cases. Is there anything like a mini-1070 upgrade? The 'mini' part is important as the case can only hold a gpu that is 8.5 inches long.

What is your current case? Zotac has a 2070 super mini, which is about 8.3" long, but may be hard to find.

lian pc-q33 [black version]. This case had a nice feature which allowed it to take very large heat sink and i currently have an i7 haswell refresh which natively runs pretty hot so it needed a decent heat sink. An 8.3 should fit but after i posted this i checked partpicker the 2070 is about 25% faster but close to $800 which is kind of like a lame deal.

Much chance any of the new cards can fit a mini form-factor. Haven't been following amd and nvidia heat profiles for the newer cards. Kind of hate to have to spend a lot of time finding a replacement case also most of the 'special' itx cases are very slow to ship with the panademic.
