Is it safe if my 2080 super isnt fully plugged into the pcie slot?

Recommended Posts

It does seem to be bend todwards the motherboard, and the I/O shield for the GPU seems to bend outwards, so im thinking that the GPU goes under the case part (sorry i have no clue what the things are called). But i have no clue how to get it under there.

If it works its probably fine, my experience with similar things have been that the GPU hasn't worked at all until seated properly. Your case looks a little wonky though, might want to straighten that out?


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

I am planning on getting a new case soon anyway, as I plan to switch to AMD and have space for watercooling. Its good to know my GPU wont explode or set on fire

Probably not installed correctly. I would not run it like that if it were my 700$ card.

If it gets yanked out it could damage itself. Again, not recommended.

Can't you just push harder to seat it?

If the case does not move is it fine? Also if i straighten out the place where it needs to be screwed in then it will be even less plugged in since the GPU I/O shield is clashing with that part and wont allow me to push that part of the pins fully into the PCIE slot

No, the GPU I/O shield is being blocked by those things hanging off the case where you screw it in

Wait you want to leave it hanging from the PCIe slot? That's a horrible idea. The cooler on it is HEAVY and it WILL bend it a LOT. Not safe at all.

Oh no, it is screwed into the place where the I/O shield is, the issue is that it wont plug in fully

Remove the other rear PCIe covers? There really shouldn't be any reason for it to not plug in. Did you forget the motherboard stand-offs or something?

It was pre built so no idea, the only other pcie covers to remove are below the GPU one so it would not do anything

Your card is also off center if you look at the rear of the case.

It looks like you've either messed something up or your case is damaged.

I dont see it ? which part of it off center?. I think the case is damaged since it was pre built and i only removed the GPU to clean off some dust

Your top PCIe cover is not removed. The GPU is bending and it's probably not screwed into the correct place

Oh yeah, I am going to remove that one. Where is it supposed to be screwed into place? There is no support to screw it in towards the front of the case

Make sure the card is in the correct (top) PCIe slot and screw it into the corresponding back space

Third picture down. You can see the card is slanted.

That's not it. There's clearly a PCI slot above the card, meant for the first slot in the back.

There is no PCIE slot above the one that card is currently plugged in. Did the people who built my PC mess up?
