270x won't fit on case - Page 2

Most often is when they don't use the 90 degree ports, and you try to use a straight sata cable off of the port, it sticks in the way of the card, but OP's design doesn't have this problem, thats why im thinking his case might be slightly bent.

Use the empty sata port in the picture instead of the one its hitting, if that sata your hitting was not populated it will flex enough to get that gpu to lock in.

If the case is slightly bent, any other card won't fit?
I had a gts 450 previously and I had no problems with it

Might be a long shot but are your sure the mobo is seated correctly? Maybe check that or even re-seat the the mobo again...

Highly unlikely you have had 2 bent 270x though, and motherboard form factor has little to no effect on what gpu you can install. Some of the worlds fastest PC's are running micro-atx boards with the largest gpus on the market just fine.

I've tried to rescrew the mobo but I haven't removed the case stand-offs

The PCB hitting the sata port isn't the problem?
Damn I'm really out of luck

The PCB of the card shouldn't touch the SATA ports from my experience with long cards in the 2nd PCIe slot of an ATX board.. That is the second slot aligns with the SATA ports. I am thinking that maybe the mobo tray may not be sitting true..... It is definitely a funny one and as others have said the boards form factor should not be an issue thinking.gif

Try getting us more images of the card and a few high res further out shots of the case and card etc.

A video may even help us give you more options to try!
