Use old PCI cards in DL385 G2

Is this possible? After reading that PCIX slots were backwards compatible with PCI cards, I purchased the PCI riser 408788-001. The cards do not fit :( Are there any other options/suggestions out there?

Thanks!

PCI-x is backward compatible, but only with 3.3v or universal cards, not 5v cards.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Thanks Terry, that appears to be my problem, I've got some old 5V cards. I guess they simply will not work in this box...

Thanks for your quick reply!

I have old 5V PCI cards which will not work in a DL385 G2. It will only accept 3.3V cards
