    Default Can't fit this usb 3.1 card on my motherboard?

    I have a Asus B250m-A motherboard but as you can see from the picture I can't seem to fit my usb 3.1 card into the slot?
    Did I buy the wrong card slot?

    The motherboard says its a PCIE slot though

    I circled the area where the slot and the card to the left. I know the pic is a bit blurry but I think you guys may know after seeing it

    Is the card a PCIe x4 card?

    If you have a spare PCIe x16 (graphics) slot, you can put it in there instead.

    Is there an adapter to fit a PCI Ex1?

    One of these, but remember that it will restrict your speed to PCI-E X1, a quarter of the cards capability.
