TS-873 pci-e

Post by NeoRox » Thu Dec 06, 2018 11:03 pm

Hello,
Just ordered a Ts873 and a 10Gbe card. My question is will a graphics card also fit in the unit along side the card. Looking at this GT1030

Thanks

Thanks for that. All the vendors selling the unit have 1030 in their specs. Span.co.uk, Amazon etc. Will both fit together or will the graphics card take up too much room does anybody know?

Well you can't fit a second card together with the only GFX card on their compatibility list (MSI 1050Ti) and that's a fact.

I'm talking about the 10GB card and the graphics card both fitting not two graphics cards :)

Pity that. I was hoping for the best of both worlds. Thanks very much for the answer though.

I was toying with the idea of hacking the card a little - remove the DVI port and dropping it into the lower slot. A second card then would fit into the upper slot. However, the GFX card fan casing also fouls on some other hardware (the HD casing) so that would have to come off too. All in all, one mod too many for my liking. I'm not saying it's impossible just very difficult - and any warranty on your GFX card you would lose.

Yeah its a bit risky anything goes wrong with the gpu could transfer a fault into the nas pci-e slot. I haven't researched external gpu's or thunderbolt to see if they are an option so thats the next step. It won't be a deal breaker if not either way.
