Topic: the chassis is too small on SFF slimline desktops? for HDSP PCIe
Does anyone have success connecting a HDSP PCIe card into a 'Small Form Factor' desktop? these desktops are also called slim. they are slighlty skinnier than normal desktops. I'm asking because I think the RME HDSP cards, the metal bracket, chrome (or in my case it is black color), is only for regular sized desktops. Thanks.
For example, I tested that the Lenovo - Model:M82 SFF-0198 will not fit. actually the bracket length and angle made it not possible to fit the PCI slot, unless I used a metal saw and cut the bracket. To be clear, I'm talking about the computer chassis or computer harness where the screw goes, but it sticks out of the computer Bay.

If this is possible, then I can widen my search to include SFF desktops. thank you.
Last, any suggestions on where to buy used HDSP PCIe cards?
