Decklink Studio card in a small form PC
on Dec 3, 2011 at 10:55:26 pm

I've just opened up my HP small form PC to install a new Black Magic Decklink Studio card only to find it won't physically fit.

I have PCI Express 1, 4 & 16 slots but the low height of the PC prevents the card from being installed.

Short of sawing out a small section of the chassis and leaving the lid off the PC can anyone think of a solution to this pain in my butt?

Is there perhaps a PCI Express cable/adapter that would allow me to connect the BM Studio card externally?

Thanks

There are adapters, but if I recall, it may be cheaper to get a new computer! A PCIe extender would be what you need, I know I've seen a few in the past, and last I looked ran around the $1K range.

Hello Mattew,
if you are compelled to use that computer, maybe Magma could have a solution for your needs.
