  1. Hi there everyone.

    I recently purchased a new PCI sound card, Asus Xonar DG 5.1, for my computer. I am pretty new to actually putting things in my computer lol and so I am asking for help :). I have a GeForce GTX 280 and those who know about this card, its a pretty big video card and so I hardly have space for the PCI slot. I put in the sound card like this:

    I was just wondering if this is safe and okay to do? Is it possible for the sound card to melt from the heat of the GFX card and the computer itself?

    Thank you very much!
    Sunny.

    It should be fine. It's not blocking the GeForce card fan

    Looks fine to me.

    Except while I had the panel off I would have taken out the vid card and blown it out.
