i'm sorry but could you please expand on this problem. and it sounds like by searing iron you mean soldering iron which would not be much help in this instance. unless you can hack up the case or get a bigger case there is not much you can do.

ahh, i'm a n00b now. i did mean soldering iron. its just, the width of the card is too large to fit in the area provided in the expansion bay. on hacking up the case, what did you suggest?

update: it fits into the motherboard, but not the back of the case.
