I've bought a 5850 for my ATX motherboard.

But when I tried to mount it, I noticed that the bottom part kicks the SATA connectors. If I unplug the 2nd hard disk, then I can plug the card. Otherwise, it is impossible. I must choose: either the disk or the card.

Any idea???

TIA

+1

Had to do this myself once or twice. I understand it when I'm buying a board with one PCIe slot, small form factor, but if you're designing a motherboard with 2+ PCIe slots you HAVE to know that your market is probably gonna slap a full-length monster of a card in all of them at some point. Never understood why they couldn't use right-angle SATA connectors on the board itself or just not put them right under the flipping card, but they do and so right-angle SATA cables were born Smiley

I just transferred one of my hard drives' contents to another hard drive because the card is long enough to actually prevent me from putting in my hard drive at all

WoW! Thanks! I've never imagined such a thing.

But It exists (just googled about)...

I highly recommend monoprice if you can wait a couple days for it - $0.95 for a 90deg cable.

There are also lots of other options: http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10226

I order all my sata/usb extenders/similar hard-to-find-cheap adapters and cables from them, never let me down.

Team Epic!
