Question Case mod PCI question...

Well, I'm officially a retard... I'm currently about 90% done with my case mod and realized that the placement of my dvd drives are in the way of a loaded pci slot. Is there anything I can purchase will plug into the slot and redirect the signal to somewhere else in the case? something that has a pci end, cable (or something that will flex), then the slot? or... will I have to make one...? Thanks in advance.

well you can buy riser cards, which can have the slot pointing at a different angle. that might be your best bet.

I had to read that like five times to figure out why a DVD drive was in the way of a PCI slot...then I noticed "case mod", lol.

thanks, that'll work perfect! EXCEPT I broke my plexiglass cover... garbage. Although, I'll be remaking it I went to go sit down in my chair after my roommate walked behind me... didn't realize she had moved the chair. Fell backwards with the case cover in hand, suffered a mild concussion... hit the back on my head on our hutch... haha kinda sucked, i'm still dizzy... but yeah, thanks! I'll definitely be able to use those 90 degree adapters. I'll post pics when I'm done. Thanks guys!
