Looking for immediate help, I want to swap parts from my current build but now I am stuck with this. Watched thru tutorial but never stumbled upon this type of clip. Someone suggested to pull the clip to the direction of CPU Cooler but my hand are destroyed trying to do this. Any help will be appreciated.

The circled tab needs to be pushed or lifted (maybe pulled towards you?) to release the graphics card from the slot. It should not require use of force, so only pull/push it in the way it will go. Don't try to force it.

Make sure the screws attaching the graphics card to the case from the metal bracket are also removed.

That little blue flange must be pulled away from the GFX card (towards the CPU) for the PCIe slot to release the video card. If you don't do this, and try to force it, you can break the mobo.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately it doesnt work.

 

1. Tried pushing it all the way down, no avail as it will be blocked by the motherboard. Pulling it feels like breaking it, feels like I can lift the motherboard just by pulling it.

 

2. All screws have been undone

Have tried pulling it towards the CPU, nothing happens, just the clip becoming bent, the GPU itself didnt get released.

 

Is there any indication of when I should stop, or should I just force through the clips?

NO forcing!

What that little clip does is lock the card in place. Pushing it away from the card, allows you to lift the card straight up form the mobo.

See the little "L" bracket at the end of this card?

That's what that blue clip connects to.

By pushing it away from that :L" it unlocks the card and allows you to lift up.

Be careful.

just wanna let u guys know that the gpu is now out, thanks for your input.

 

btw @Radium_Angel , I did force it way more than I think I should but I dont find any damage on the board or anything bad (reference on 2nd pic). Should be good, right?
