  1. yes it will fit on the board

  2. but my sata ports are in the way..ill post some screens.
  3. dont those blue sata cables have an L shape connector on the other end?....what card is that in there now is it a 5770? If the cables dont have the L shape on the other end then get some new cables too...and it will be tight but it will fit just fine
  4. thats 6850 ati..hmm yeah the L cables will do but if all the ports will be covered thats the hard part..
  5. Best answer
    Get yourself some Ultra Low Profile Latching Right/Left Angle SATA Cables.
  6. why do you unplug those cables often? if not it does not matter if they have a card runnin right over them
  7. hmm thanks for the replies..ill try that option..thanks!
  8. check back when its workin!!
