I'm currently using a Gigabyte GA-970a-D3P.

 

When I try to install a graphics card into the second PCI slot, it won't fit because there's these six metal circles one the end:

 

There's this two-prong metal thing on the bottom of the graphics card ...

The card will fit nicely if I fit it in the PCIex16 slot, but if I try and put it in the PCIe 4 slot, this prong will keep the card at a weird angle an keep it from going in straight.

 

At first, I thought it was because of these six metal circles on the side of the mobo, shown by the red arrow here:

But that doesn't make sense! There are also soe of those metal circles in front of the main PCI slot! Shown by the green arrow!

 

So how do I put in a second graphics card?


My current build:

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P
Processor: AMD FX-8350
RAM: 12GB (2x2GB+8GB)
Video Card: Geforce GTX 1050ti

OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

Why are you trying to add a second video card?

 

I doubt the capacitors are getting in the way.  It may be something about how the motherboard sits in your case or the slots on the back.
