hey guys,

I need your help on something,

I have the Gigabyte z77x UD5h motherboard and I'm trying to install the MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC edition.

The problem is that the video card wont go in the PCI-E 16x slot because of heatsink issue from the motherboard and the video card, like, the video card won't go in the slot completely :(

I am wondering if anyone who have these specs managed to get a work around, or what should I do?

Drop it to the lower PCI E slot?

haha, yes i did that, but im not using the 16x slot, does anyone know of anyway to take off the msi twin frozr heatsink of the gpu?

Looking at the board, your issue might be the way the board is seated in the case itself. The heatsink from the board doesnt appear to be causing clearance issues.
