    Default getting a low-profile GFX card to fit in a normal case

    Hi there,

    I made the mistake of ordering a low-profile graphics card and only realised my error once I have taken it out of the box. Unfortunatly the box ripped slightly upon opnening and the vendor won't exchange it now.

    Rather then lose money selling it second hand I was wondering if I could cut notches in the back of the case where the cards slot in so it would fit. Does anyone know if this is an ok solution as long as I do a good job of it?

    Cheers!

    Check with the manufacturer as they'll likely send you a full height backplate to replace the half height one with.

    Thanks for that, I never knew the backplate was replaceable.

    Cheers!

    Just remove the standoffs to either side of the monitor socket and then its just 2 screws left to remove that join the PCB to the backplate before the backplate comes away.
