Closed PCI 4x slot extensor? Tags: Motherboards PCI USB3 Extension Last response: July 6, 2012 2:05 PM in Motherboards Share valp June 29, 2012 12:12:47 AM Hello there, I bought a little USB 3.0 Pci card which uses that little PCI slot (4x I think). However, my VGA won't let me use this card, because it takes physicaly the whole space with its fan. Is there anykind of extension mechanism to overcome this issue? Or maybe use those bigger PCI slots? Thanks a lot.

And yes they make risers and ribbons and all kinds of those things. valp July 6, 2012 12:12:14 AM Best answer selected by valp. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
