Install x16 GPU into x8 slot by cutting the card?

I’m getting ready for vGPU in vsphere 6.0. All I need is a GPU in my esxi host but all my cards are x16 length and the R710 I have only has x8 length slots. I have an adapter ribbon cable but many of you know what the R710 has limited room.

So I decided to cut my GPU from x16 to x8.

You need a dremel and tape to protect the card.

Hack windows 7 without tools

Stuck with a windows 7 box but don’t have SYSTEM access? Need access? You don’t need any tools.

 

Much like the Windows NT local privilege escalation trick this is a great way to hack windows 7.
