270x won't fit on case

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
GPU: HIS R9 270X IceQ X²

MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-H87M-D3H
Case: Fractal Design Core 3000 (USB 2.0)

The PCB of 270X is hitting the SATA port of my motherboard.
I've tried to get a card replacement, same problem.


As a result, I can't lock it in to place


Don't know if it can be seen in the picture, but there's a gap between the case and the GPU

Looks fine to me. Plastic touching the PCB shouldnt be a issue unless its a furnace in there

Yeah but I can't lock the GPU in place, and when I let the case stand vertically the whole weight of the GPU is in the PCI-E slot, which worries me.

Honestly it looks like it screws in just fine from the pictures. If the gpu cant be screwed in and you cant used the Second slot then your gonna need a new Motherboard. Any GPU longer then the Mother will not work because you will just run into the same problem it seems. If you can get a single screw you should be fine for the most part or you can add a PCE card there and screw that in so the gpu falls abit on to that to keep it in place.

I can't screw in even just a single screw, damn I didn't know that the form factor of the mobo will affect the GPU. I think I'll just have to get a replacement card :/

It would seem the case is bent, and has nothing to do with your card, or the motherboard IMHO, but from the looks of it, another card isn't going to change a thing since all cards have the same clearance below the card between the motherboard so any card the lenth of this one, will hit that sata port.

also re-looking over the pictures you can easily get both screws installed, push the card forward so the screw holes line up and even if the card isn't perfectly into the slot on the motherboard, 99% of the time it still works perfectly fine and makes contact.

2nd edit: ^^ what i mean is push up the card off the sata port (from the back of the card) and it will line up with the case holes properly.

Never built a matx, but would these two components fit if not in the case? I'd think if anything the case is out spec. Would be a little silly I'd gigabyte didn't design for clearance of that.

I have tried to push the card up but it doesn't work frown.gif I still can't lock it in place.
I'm thinking of getting a smaller card 22cm will be fine I think
