trying to mount a RSC-R2UU-A4E8+ riser card in my new CSE-836TQ chassis to provide additional PCI slots for my HBA's, Mellanox FO card and NVME to PCI adapter. But the card doesn't come with a bracket, nor do I see a way to secure it firmly in the slot. Anybody have a thought on how to do it? Could I use a different OEM/Aftermarket riser card to break out the one slot on the motherboard (Supermicro H8DGU-F)?

In talking with Supermicro support, the above riser is not intended for the CSE-836TQ case. In fact my motherboard is not intended for the case (H8DGU-F), despite fitting. So I picked up a H8DG6 and it will work without the riser card.
