Deal with Graphic Card Covering Front Panel Connectors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I got a ASUS P6X58D-E and atm I have both my GTX 480's in two PCIs slots next to each other. I really wanna put one farther to the left for more space and better cooling but I cant because it end up covering the Front Panel Connectors so I can't plug them in, have anyone got the same motherboard and found a solution for this? Pic can be found here: http://www.pureoverclock.com/images/..._p6x58de_5.jpg (The most left slot will cover the connectors with a gtx 480 over em.

The card should sit far away enough from the board that the connectors won't be effected. You might have to bend the wires pretty tightly, but it should fit.
