Optiplex 760 SFF dual monitor graphics card

Jump to solution

I just purchased a refurb Optiplex 760 Small Form Factor to replace my wife's Dimension 4700.  The 4700 had an MSI R4350-MD512H display card in it to support dual monitors (for work, not for gaming or anything graphics intensive).  While I was able to mount it in the 760SFF with the low profile slot covers, I can't put the hard drive carrier in, because the heatsink is about a 1/4" too thick.

Has anyone found a graphics card that will go in the 760SFF and allow the remounting of the hard drive carrier?  Like I said, nothing fancy, just low profile, thin, and cheap.

(Or, how do I make a home-made heatsink?)

Thanks,

Larry

I had my own answer staring me in the face sitting on my desk at work.  The ATI 2400 XT.  $20 on eBay (since the one at work belongs to work).

Thanks for the other help.

This is something that I tell people all the time.  The ASUS SILENT HD5450 and HD6450 heatsink is FLAT and therefore it does not block the hard drive.   Others have used a dremel tool.

The USFF doesn't support ANY Card.

Desktop and SFF only support THIN fanless Low profile cards like the ASUS 5450.

The article below is someone who hacked an Optiplex 990 to fit a low profile card.

The Silent ASUS 5450 does not need this kind of surgery to shoehorn a card in.
