I'm really worried it won't fit in my computer i opened it up and it doesn't look like i have enough room, but i wouldn't know i'm not too good with computers.

If you looked at the screenshot you will notice that the heatsink is right next to the pcie x16 slot, it's 0.5 inches away, the heatsink is also 0.7 inches tall, will the graphics card go above it?

Thanks for taking your time and helping me

  1. Bump? I still havent been helped :/
  2. First of all here: 8.3" x 4.4" x 1.4" the dimensions of the card.
    Secondly, measure it yourself. that motherboard looks really old not even I can identify it.
    Thirdly if measured properly.. you have answered your question!

    P.S
    never bump, read the rules. You can get your post/question deleted.

    I'm asking because if you notices, my heatsink is really close to pcie x16 slot, i was wondering if the graphics card will go over the heat sink, the graphics card doesn't have the dimensions for that
  4. oh you mean that little stupid heatsink.. psshh idk. You can only tell once you try it with the card. There's no measurements for that

    there is literally no way for us to tell you... no way for us to find out how high the heatsink is, so unless the unlikely event of someone who has experience with THAT particular Mobo chimes in, Your going to have to try it out to see

    find out the name of your MOBO, make new thread in MOBO section, Call it, "How high is the *@#@#@* heatsink, will it block my card??""

    or something along those lines, As long as MOBO model is in the title, you will have a MUCH better chance of someone finding you that can actually help
  7. The heatsink is around 0.5-0.7 inches tall
