  1. Thanks a lot. All my questions now have been properly addressed, now I can game in peace.
  2. Oh and btw another thing. The gpu screw-in points in the case are stripped and I am using some m2.5 (maybe) screws with bolts on one end. Now the main question is that if those bolts will be able to hold up the weight of the gpu. Its a zotac twin fan 1660s, not a too big unit more like a mini itx dual fan version. I have attached some images with some thumbscrews and pau screws as reference. P.S: Don't mind the rusted screw. Already changed it.
  3. Oh, okay. I will use it for the time being. The wonders of mass production of china
  4. The IO shield and ports line up perfectly. But the thing I noticed is that there is quite a bit of gap between the Audio ports and the metal part of the IO shield. This gap is absent in the usb ports. This may mean that the bottom standoffs are misaligned and so the gpu does not fit properly. Btw the IO shield is properly attached and it clicked itself in place. Here is a picture.
  5. I loosened the screws and it went in a bit more. Now only a bit sticks out. As you and others said if the gpu screws in then I am good to go and the pc doesn't crash, so I will leave it as it is for now. I will get a decent branded case later. I have uploaded a picture of the current condition, a little bit of the golden fingers are visible but majority is inside the socket I think.
  6. Yes i pushed it hard enough. I think that the motherboard is sitting bit lower than the previous one so the IO is catching on to the case brackets. I checked the IO prongs and they sit okay at the backside of the case. I tried that and it went towards the mobo io but the standoffs were not aligned at that point. I think my shitty chinese oem case is at fault here. Its a no name brand. Phew, so that 1mm mis-alignment wont cause any issue in the long run. Feeling atleast relieved now lol.
  7. The top slot doesn't let the gpu sit fully flush. The left end is slightly raised up by a mm. So I wanted to try it in the other slot.
  8. Can anyone please help with this? I want to Install my graphics card jn the second PCIe x16 slot but I am not able to find(or rather not able to understand) the bandwidth of that slot from the official motherboard specifications. I have a ryzen 3rd gen Matisse cpu. Mobo: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570 phantom Gaming 4/index.asp
  9. Yes, I just had to push the IO plate slightly to line up the holes. I was just wondering how can this happen, same PC case, same gpu just a different motherboard of same form factor. At this point I think asrock's holes are drilled slightly off from the normal atx specs. I might try to loosen the motherboard mounting screws and try again but if its working now I think I should let it be as it is.
  10. The circled part of the gpu is not going in all the way and is staying out by approx a mm or less. So I have to press in the IO shield to screw it in place properly. I changed my motherboard to an atx x570 today from an atx x370. The gpu went in all the way in the x370. Is it because of manufacturing tolerance of the motherboard standoff holes being slightly off in asrock vs gigabyte ? Also will it be okay to run it like this? The pc boots fine and heaven benchmark on all ultra 8x passed with flying colours.
  11. Okay will get the ds3h. But need a solution to another issue. I stripped the holes of the pcie gpu mounting screws. Normally I use m3 screws to attach it but now since the holes are stripped, can I use m2.5 screws with bolts? Attached some crude pictures of some I salvaged off a old machine. It holds okay but will it be okay to use for a long term?
  12. Hey @TofuHaroto, New update. Found a x570 phantom gaming 4 from asrock for cheap. And the case I have supports it. So should I go for that?
