    Hi guys,

    Do you know where I can get a single height backing panel for a X1800XT 512MB card (dual-DVI), as the Dell PC I just bought can't fit double height cards, but I have a X1800XT and a Zalman cooler which fits is!

    I really don't want to have to hack saw the double height backing panel if I don't have to!

    Thanks,


    Weiran.

    i'm pretty sure you cant change them.

    but if you can you need the plate off a X1800XL or X1800GTo.. but good luuck finding one lol..

    also, these are the things you really ought to check before hand

    They're just screwed on aren't they? It seems I'm going to have to hack saw it off then!
     
  4. Um, happy hacking to you then...lol.....I would contact the vendor you got it from first though and see if they can offer you a replacement one for an X1800XL......

    Yeah I know, the spec said 2 free PCI slots so I thought it would be okay.

    I somehow doubt eBuyer will get a backing plate for me, but I'll give it a shot. I'm also having second thoughts about hacking now after more careful inspection, so I probably will sell it again and get a 7900GT if I can't get this sorted :(.
