If GPU works that means it's all the way in?

If GPU works that means it's all the way to the Pcie slot? Because I installed it while the PC was standing and I read that sometimes it doesn't go all the way in when you don't flip the pc on the side

Depending on your motherboard you should have a clip on the back of the PCIe slot (the part furthest from the front of the card). If that's flipped up then you should be good. If the videocard isn't seated all the way you might see artifacts on your screen but that also might indicate a loose video cable.

You are probably fine it's just easier to install when the case is laying down.

Also, you should've heard a click when it went in.

I didn't heard a click but the performance seems fine and I screwed it in place

If I flip the pc and give it a push and see if it moves?

If you're going to open up the case you might as well reseat it then. :P

It's kinda hard to access the pcie clip because of my CPU cooler and I'm a little afraid if I pull too hard and the clip is not free and damage something

Can you fit your phone in the case easily? I use my phone to take pictures of things I can't see to get a better look (if you're unsure, take a video and move it around in the general area). :)

that sounds more like incompetent people writing articles than an actual problem of the pc's orientation.

you made a topic last saturday about this and you got the answer.. stop making topics... you don't need to hear the click.

if it works it works, if it's screwed in it won't go anywhere, stop worrying about nothing

One last question when the gpu is screwed can the other side of the gpu move? For example to move a little out of the pci slot?

No, it cannot. On the left side you have the screws and, on the right, there's a clip that holds it in place.

Again, if you are so concerned just take it out and, reseat it otherwise just forget it.

Nah, you are fine. The lock probably didn't go in all the way.
