Do not pull anything unless these instructions (or the whiteboard) say to pull it. This includes ribbon cables.
- When pulling sound cards, leave sound cables attached to card (not CD Drive or motherboard)
- Do not pull risers. (They are designed to go with the motherboard they came with and are not generic.)
- When pulling any kind of drive, rails and brackets should stay with the system.
- Half-height sized cards
- A few PCI or AGP cards will have a back plate that is only half as tall as normal cards. These are "half height" cards and need to be left in green light systems.
- This refers to the size of the "stem" of the card, not the card itself.
- When pulling cards, leave cables attached to card
- Do not pull risers. (They are designed to go with the case they came with and are not generic.)
- Do not pull a "card" that does not go into an industry standard slot. (We do not consider these to be cards, and they need to stay with their motherboards.)
