M83 Desktop - Form Factor not allowing GTX 950

HI, am confused ... bought a M83 tower (in manual), Desktop (in the Lenovo PC support tool)

Machine Type Model: 10BE0002GE

 

looks like a tower to me

 

BUT: I cannot fit in a standard graphics card (a connector is in the way) and am missing power connectors ...

 

Described my issues lengthy on my blog (How to build a cheap gaming PC) Smiley Happy following a youtube video - and now am a little embarrassed Smiley Happy because I hit 2 massive walls

 

Interstingly the youtube video imo uses the EXACT same desktop and has 0 problems fitting in that card ...

 

Is that normal that I cannot add normal PCI cards to Lenovo M83s?

Thx a million

The power PCi Express power is not a problem, you can tap off a 4-pin molex with an adapter for your graphics card power, and there may be a 4 pin power connector open on the MB too.   

 

I cannot help with the clearance problem, since graphics cards vary by manufacture, but what connector is it hitting, and are both slots obstructed?

 

See page 73 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual for layout of MB for location of the two 4-pin power connectors (#11)

 

 

Best of luck,
