Problems with fitting my gpu into my new case

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First of all I would like to clarify that I am a first time builder and I have recently bought components to build my own pc. Up until now everything has gone absolutely fine with building; cpu, ram, psu, ssd, and cooling have all been installed and they work fine. But I have encountered a problem with fitting my graphics card (msi radeon rx 580 armor oc) into my case (CiT Dark soul). While I realise my case is definitely on the lower end of the cost spectrum for cases, I wasn't expecting that the little panels on the side of the case that you usually remove to fit the gpu in would actually be stuck to the case itself. It might not be too clear in the image but these panels can't be removed without excessive force and don't slide out like in every tutorial I have seen for installing a gpu. Am I missing something?

You have to manually remove those using a screw driver. They should snap off pretty cleanly after wiggling them back and forth a few times.

No, you're not missing anything.  They are half-cut, like perforate paper in a notebook.  You literally have to break them out.  Be careful, will be sharp edges when you do but that's how cheap cases do it.

That's what I thought initially but there was only one thumb screw in the top one and none tin the others, also after fiddling around with them I don't think I'd be able to remove them without breaking something inside(as you can see in the picture) and they don't bend outside.

Okay, next time I'll make sure to spend more on the case I guess. Thanks for the reply

You don't have to spend more, just break them.  They're made that way.   I've done it a few times, without and with a motherboard already mounted in the case.

 

I know it feels like a bad idea, but once you get that first one out you'll see it's not bad.
