PCIe installation in 473

Post by pdes » Wed Aug 21, 2019 11:53 pm

I have a TVS-473e and need to install a 3.1 USB PCIe card. It looks as though I need to remove the power unit before I can get access to the mounting screws. Before I risk unscrewing the wrong parts (I think the power plug and other bits are in the same screw array) has anyone seen an instruction on how to remove the power unit?

starting page 24

make sure you check the compatibility list for the correct cards supported, as the 4 bay unit has a lot less space between power supply and brackets then the 6 or 8 bay variants
