I'm not really sure what your problem is. Could you please upload a picture of the problem?

If you haven't bought the mobo yet, don't buy it. Read further down in the post.

That is indeed interesting. I forgot about that edge piece. You could cut that off, but I do NOT recommend doing so.

You could get a PCIe extender.

Whether solution with PCIe extender went fine? Does it match for this motherboard? And is it safe, same fast? Is there anything important to know about these extenders? I thinking about this mb as cheapest for LGA1366 too.

I do not recommend this mobo. Try to increase your budget. Using PCIe extenders is hard because the mobo is not helping hold up the graphics card.

Actually, whether a holding up of GPU is the only reason to watch out for this mobo?
I know that it's OEM and it can't overclock.
Is there more useful things to know about it?
I request for answer. Thanks

I would need to see a link that has it's specs, but it's not the best quality motherboard. I have never heard of that brand either.

It's boasting Xeon CPU's so I would venture to say it is mainly a server mobo.
