x1550 really short

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My friend gave me a radeon x1550 pci-e for my office computer and also a "molex pci-e card"

The problem is... the card is so short, the backpanels dont match and wont let me slip it in. He said to attach it to the molex card or some **** but i have absolutely no idea *** hes talking about.

My x1550 looks really short... something like this i edited

The card he gave you is a low profile card, and you have to modify or make a new backplate for it. You can bend the backplate temporaly until you find the solution, or even remove it. If the card doesn't move or unplug, there is no problem.

I was on the other side... I had a small card, but with a large backpanel, and I had to modify it to plug the card into my HTPC (mine was easier... just cut, bend, and make a hole for the screw)

yup, just bend the backplate; no big deal unless you plan to put it in an htpc someday...
