Power switch blocking 3 slot video card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm trying to put the asus directcu ii 6970 in my last slot on my mobo to crossfire with the first slot. I can't get it in though because the power switch/USB/led switches(where the front panel is connected to mobo) are blocking it. I figure I can take out all of them except the power switch but still doesn't push in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
I don't think Video cards are meant to go in there.. I'm not sure, but most likely that last PCI E slot its not x16 nor x8. I think its x4. If its x4 I belive no GPU are meant to be installed in that Slot.

Good luck!

EDIT: BTW, this is AMD motherboards area. You might wanna try on INTEL area.. hahah Just a thought

2nd Edit: I looked up your board and the 3rd Slot is x4.

Expansion Slot(s): 1 processor, LGA1366 Socket , 6 memory, DIMM 240-pin , 3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 ( CrossFireX: full x16, x16 mode ) (Two SLots here) , 1 PCI Express 2.0 x16 ( x4 mode ) (Third slot here) , 1 PCI Express x1 , 2 PCI
