HELP ATI 4890 too big to use PCI slots Tags: Graphics Cards PCI ATX Graphics Last response: April 12, 2011 1:19 PM in Graphics & Displays Share l00k April 12, 2011 8:18:49 AM Hi, I've got a system built on a micro ATX mobo ALiveNF6G-VSTA (not the best) http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=ALIVENF6G-V... I'm replacing my HD 3850 with a HD 4890 which takes the space of 2 slots because of the heatsink and fan. Trouble is I also want to have my Satalite tuner card (Compro VideoMate S350 DVB-S) in the bottom PCI slot but it wont bloody fit because of the fan on the 4890. The way I see it I have a few options 1- get a new ATX mobo £40 I can get something that will sort me out without changing any other components 2- get a flexible PCI riser card and put the tuner card lower in my case (case is a big old ATX tower) 3- sell the 4890 and stick with the 3850 Anyone had a similar problem. Anyone had any success with a PCI riser used in this way?
