ok so i tried putting it in the first PCI-E 2.0 slot, but heatpipe is in the way.
i had no choice but to break off 2 metal prongs to put it in the other darker blue slot. I couldnt put in the card because the prongs were in the way. Those metal pieces stay there if it dont break off the prongs things but i had no choice, n my mobo is screwed on in the right places too.
When i did this, i cut my 2 fingers, but im ok. Thing is, as soon as i put in the heavy card in place, these............ends hits the case in the back too soon!
I cannot remove the back i dont think, even if i did, i wouldnt have the right tools to take it off, so im gonna have to take out everything this weekend.
this is the piece that came with my case n secures the parts so they dont move around, but i dont think i will be able to use it once i get my card secured on, so im gonna have to find small screws of some sort.
the question is, how or what tools should i use to cut out a piece of my case? I want to cut here or in that area; not that big but small or slim enought to fit the card or other future cards in.
i like this case, but this is the gayiest part i dont like about the case. Those black marks i marked for which holes i need to screw the mobo back in if i take it out or change mobos.
oh n the current graphics card is in sig. I already downloaded 8.1 Calayst thinking that the mobo didnt recoqnize the HD 3870 x2, but it wasnt in all the way n now my sound driver is messed up.
any help is much appreciated, i want this card in by this weekend!
i wont be able to respond until around 4pm tomorrow, got Basic Design class to attend to. Idk where to put this thread so bear with me, im ****ed that the HD 3870 x2 didnt fit, i had no idea...............dumb cool case lol.
