cooler master case securing expansion cards

  absent 17:49 13 Dec 2011

I have just installed a graphic card to replace the onboard,and for the life of me cannot understand how you are supposed to secure the card.There are no screw fixings,I suspect it is supposed to be tool free. The case is in the elite series and aprox two years old.

There should be like a blue lever that you open then install the card.Then close the lever again

Thank you for the reply, but I need to Know how to secure the card to the case, normally it is with a threaded screw.

Thank you all, it was me being stupid,when I built this PC I installed an ethernet card (no longer used) incorrectly I put it over the top of the locking bar,wondered at the time why there was no way to to secure the card! Anyway took the cards out, reinstalled,locked them down, great.

Thank again, Alan
