Unfortunately that doesn't help in this case. The problem is the expansion connector is over 1mm higher than it should be, the pins don't even go all the way through the board, so the part where the expansion connector and the board slot through the plastic of the lower part of the case, they just won't fit. I would have to saw off the whole lip for it to fit in.
This is definitely a manufacturing error, and I really don't want to risk trying it on a bare motherboard just to see if it works or not, because it would be no use to me in that state and I planned on having it inside my desktop A1200. I swap accelerators and things around all the time, but I've never had a problem like this before. You can see how bad it is in the photos.
