please help! cannot fit gpu into case/mobo
haf 932 case. rampage iii formula. fitting in massive gtx580.

but it doesnt line up at all! when i try to put the card into the case, through the case's pci-e slots, it does not match up with the pins on the mobo!!
the metal inbetween the slots prevents me from placing card into the pins at all!!
what am i suppose to do?! this seems like an insane problem, or atleast is driving me insane.
the last thing i want to do is to have to cut out the metal or something.
the mobo fits in beautifully, i thought...

well its a dual slot card and itll take up,right, do take pictures. dont think you mounted it wrong but well see.

Did you remove the right case slots? As in...lined up with the PCI-E you're fitting your 580 in.

ummm ok. im a total noob, and have forever solidified that status in my mind.
i was trying to use the top two slots, where i should have been on the second and third.


so it fits and i freaked out for nothing. shouldn't be doing this when i still have a fever and am getting over the flu!
