pci stepper?

Postby dasnorm » Thu Aug 05, 2010 16:53

I have a unique problem, my video card is physically too large leaving me less than a 1/4 inch gap to my tv tuner

so when I run 3 versions of wow and watch tv I get tv lag as the heat from the vid card blows right on the tuner

I figure someone makes a "stepper" where I can plug it into the slot and have the tuner moved down lower for better airflow?

never seen such a thing, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

We have hundreds of those lying around the office, we use them for 3U servers that have full size video decoder cards. I can send you one (or 10) if you want.
