  • Glue PCI card to motherboard?

    I was wondering if there is a way i could GLUE my PCI card to the pci slot or something of that sort, sometimes when i hit bumps they come just sligthly out... i need to prevent this... any ideas?

    I bough a flexi pci connector from carputer.no so that I could mount my graphics board laying down.

    Something like that could maybe help depending on what box you have.

    If you have problems today you will eventually wear out the connectors due to high mass. I do not recommend glue, or in any other way fixing mobo and pci board together.

      You can use hot-glue. It's non-conductive, and should hold your PCI card in place.
      I worked for a place that used this method to keep the system together in shipping.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        I'm not sure I want to know what company that was, DP :-)

        Btw, is "spring 07" still valid?

              Ive had good experience with the hot glue. It has just enough hold and isnt too difficult to remove when that time comes.

                same here with hot glue, just resist touching it until its fully cooled

                    I'll second the fishing line suggestion, it'll be more snug & secure with less chance of coming loose (plus, less mess)

                      I have tried the hot glue method with a pci wireless card in my rig.

                      After a weekend with numerous issues I finally tracked it down to the pci card. Even though it was glued in place it was moving enough to disrupt the connections.

                      Solution- Throw the pci card away and use usb!

                        or search for other card... there might be a little difference between PCB thickness of card and card, and other card might be ok...

                          If you're making a mess with a hot glue gun, then you're doing it wrong.
