O300 Nodeboard Pull

Unread postby TeamBlackFox » Mon May 11, 2015 9:49 am

Can anyone tell me exactly how to pull an O300 Nodeboard? I unscrewed every screw I can find but cannot seem to get the board to come out. I got a dead 4x 500 here I'm swapping for a 4x 600 that works, but is in a terrible case.

Do you have the numalink screws taken off the back that hold the numalink brackets? Other than that it was pretty trivial when I've swapped boards.

Yeah the two NUMALink screws are released, as is everything else I can find. Pulling the board towards the front of the case is not working.
