    SAM-flex and Radeon HD cards with large heat-sinks Link to this post

    It appears that Radeon HD cards with passive cooling are a problem for the SAM flex. The large heat sink can block the SATA ports if it is plugged into the 66 MHz slot. The Radeon X1550 that I have has a fan, but both the 2400 and 4350 have large heat sinks.

    To that end, does anyone have a Radeon HD 2400 or higher that has a compact fan instead of a 1.5 slot high heat sink? If so, please post the card's details here.

    Any other possible solutions other than using the card in one of the 33 MHz slots?

    My HIS Radeon HD4350 fits fine in both the 1st and 3rd PCI slots without blocking anything and it has a large passive heatsink. The SATA cables must be plugged in first and run right up behind the step on the heatsink, just watch and be careful when installing it.

    It is the same on my PowerColor HD2400 PRO.

    It is difficult to insert the cable near the heatsink and the first time I unplug the SATA.

    Next time I test this and post the result.

    Regards.

    Edit.
    Unfortunately, the capacitor occupies the same space of the SATA plug.
    We must tilt the SATA plug and cut a piece of heatsink.
    I do not know how you can force without damaging the main board or the card.
    So for now I give and forgive the 9200SE in the connector 66MHz.
    I think that is why the ATI 2400HD PRO is not a good choice for the card Sam440ep-FLEX.
