Also interested in getting an answer to this. I tried with a general purpose Aliexpress riser, but it's just a tad short (it can actually work, but somewhat crooked). In case it helps, I've measured my (standard?) 1u riser to be 24-25mm mounting height and I would estimate that the S920 needs about 29mm (measuring from the base of the pci-e slot on the board, to a straight mounted standard pci-e card).
I think you may be trying to push this little unit a bit too far since it only really has one pcie slot and one mini pcie for the wifi card. You might be able to put your lte mini pci-e in the system and then use a usb wifi, but even that might not work due to software issues. You're actually better off using a low powered sff case with a low powered cpu to get all the cards you need installed.I bought one a couple of days ago. I wanted to make a router. My idea is to put LTE card, wifi card to have wifi5 and intel card with 4 ports via riser. But I am unsure how I can use LTE mini PCI-E and wifi card? Where do I connect another card?
what do you suggest?I think you may be trying to push this little unit a bit too far since it only really has one pcie slot and one mini pcie for the wifi card.

Almost any sff system under $50 would fit the bill well like this Dell 3010:what do you suggest?
Okay, I believe page 67 of this linked tech manual on the motherboard should show how to reset the bios password:Will wait for you Thanks!
Interesting that you had to update the bios to reset it. I would have just pulled the cmos battery and left it unplugged.Wow! Many thanks!
So I find out how to do this. You have to make flash drive with free dos. Than to download latest bios for your model. Put RCV pin in recovery mode, insert prepared usb flash and listen for beeps. It is going to take 2 minutes. At the end there is going to be two long beeps and two short. That is the signal that mobo is updated and completely reseted to defaults. Everything is deleted except windows OS key which is preserved. (Only if your motherboard has it)
@Samir You better get your lawyer involved, this man has a strong case against ya, for your upvotes on deals forums.
On a serious side, this is pretty rusty piece of hardware that produces more heat than calculations. I'm not a poor guy, but I've been replacing my old hardware actively thoughout last years not because of the watts it eats, but because of the watts it emits, versus the performance. And when it comes to bad weather, yep, newer hardware lasts way longer on UPS than antiques of 2000s. I still love them and use them but mostly they've been retired from mission-critical positions. I always ttry to find ways to repurpose the old stuff I have but I would not buy a decade old computers right now.
