Sound card won't fit in new PC
Posted on 2011-09-04
I recently put together a new PC inside of a CoolerMaster HAFX case. Love the case but for some reason with the Mobo I have the sound card doesn't fit properly. By that I mean that when it is recognized by the PC it isn't actually screwed in because the metal plate doesn't line up with the hole. The issue seems to be that the case itself has too tall of "walls" where the screws go to screw in PCI PCIe etc cards. My GFX card fits fine but the sound card is working but it isn't screwed in.
In other words, what would you suggest I do to try and make it so when I push in an audio plug it doesn't unseat the sound card. That's the large issue I am having now. I was thinking maybe sticking some 3M underneath as a temporary fix. Never had this issue..Thanks.
