PCI Express cards, like all computer equipment, can be severely damaged by static electricity. Be sure that you are properly grounded before opening your computer case or touching your PCI Express card. StarTech.com recommends that you wear an antistatic strap when installing any computer component. If an antistatic strap is unavailable, discharge yourself of any static electricity build-up by touching a large grounded metal surface (such as the computer case) for several seconds. Also be careful to handle the PCI Express card by its edges and not the gold connectors. 1.

Gently insert the card into the open PCI Express slot and fasten the bracket to the rear of the computer case. Note: If installing the card into a small form-factor/low-profile desktop system, replacing the pre-installed standard-profile bracket with the included low-profile (half-height) installation bracket may be necessary. 5.
