  • Who sells PCI risers?

    Hi, I'd prefer a UK supplier really, and the only one I've found so far is Mini-ITX.com, and including delivery, it will set me back over 20 ($35). Plus I'm putting my system in a DIN sized case, and the riser looks too tall.

    So, who else sells em?

    not UK based, but shouldn't be too much to ship to you.

      Good luck fitting a riser and then a card into a din size case...But if you accomplish it, please post how you did it. I have a din and a half case and can't see how I could even fit a mini pci (not laptop mini pci) card much less a riser and still get the case back on.

              I'd have to agree. a DIN sized chassis might not allow enough clearance for a riser and PCI card. even with a low profile riser, a PCI card would be about 1/2" higher than the highest connector on the mobo. This may be an issue.
              Please post your findings.

                  A DIN sized chassis, in my opinion, just is not suited to use a PCI card peroid. In fact, as an example, the C-134 case requires the use of low profile memory and a low pro. heat sink just to get the case closed with a slim hdd and optical drive.
                  I have assembled DIN chassis' before, and I can tell you it is a magic act just to get the damn thing closed.
                  Bottom line: I don't think DIN plus PCI card will work.

                      Thanks for the links... I've now gutted my DIN headunit, and I have a feeling motorcity is right, it's gonna be a damn tight squeeze with a PCI card in there. That ribbon riser thing looks exellent tho. I'm gonna mount the motherboard and PSU first, and then see if theres room for a PCI card. If there is, I'll be sure to post pics.

                      I'm gonna mount a 3.5" HD externally, since that definately won't fit.
