Xonar DX and MSi Platinum P45

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I will be putting my new rig together this weekend.

I inserted the soundcard (Asus Xonar DX) into the PCIe slot to see if the card would clear the boards heatpipes (it did) and noticed that the connection seems a little flimsy: The card doesn't fit snug into the boards PCIe slot, it's not quite so bad that it falls out when I turn the board upside down but it does 'wobble' noticeably on the x-axis when I gently push on either end of the card...

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Screw it down with the screws provided.

Everyone has this problem without screwing it down, especially in PCI-E 16x slots.
