Hi,

I bought separate parts that I am assembling into my own computer. My case is an NZXT Phantom, and my motherboard is a Sabertooth X58. I have been trying like crazy to put my Geforce 580 into the PCI-X x 16 2.0 slot, but it doesn't fit into the case. I am wondering if this is a problem that occurs often and I should take my video card back for a new one or if I am doing something wrong. I have checked multiple times and verified that it is the correct Video Card slot. The way it fits is that I can push the card diagonally into the slot a bit, but some of the yellow pins stick out on the video card, and I can't screw the card into the holster. If I line up the screws so that the card fits in the holster for my Phantom case, all of the video card pins only lightly rest on the motherboard slot, and I can't lock the slot. Did I buy the wrong video card or case? Please help.

WHen assembling the Motherboard into the case did you use the correct standoffs between the case and Motherboard?
