    pci extension cable, pci right angle

    is there a way to make your pci cards lie flat instead of at a right angle to the motherboard? i want to make 4 pci slots lie flat instead of at a right angle. is there any sites that have these, maybe like a ribbon cable, that connects to the cards?

    dim-8... just be careful about which riser card you get. Some are 32bit, some 64/just make sure you check that it will work on the board you have. Many of these don't work with the epia mini-itx boards!

    OK, well, was just about to start a new post, but adding here seems is both helpful and useful.

    I found this riser card. It's for Epia boards, but looking at it, it doesn't say which way it is supposed to face, and wether it lays the cars over the motherboard, or effectively lays them the other direction away from the board (yes I know it says away from, but I'm not sure if that is just bad wording) almst doubling the width of an Epia?

    If it lays over the board (which I hope), do those measurement look like they will clear the IO backplane when it is fitted over the ports?

    I'm looking to try and assemble a 2 Din box behind the dash, with the screen dropping down slightly on a hinge or rails and a spring to allow access to a slot DVD rom.

    That riser faces away from the mainboard.

    Bugger, that is my plan knackered then. Guess I will have to find a USB WiFi card should I choose to add it as well as an FM PCI card.
