Touched gpu PCB with screwdriver

That's my last question regarding my gpu because I was finally able to make it seat perfectly. When I was trying to push the Pcie clip with the screwdriver to close I may touched the gold plated pci part on the gpu PCB. Could I have damaged anything? PC boots

Touching won;t do anything, boot up and game, see if it works.

 

If you scratched it and tore into it... well boot up and game, see if it works ;)

When it was off? No, unless you struck it with a great force, just touching it won't kill the GPU.

If the PSU wasn't on then you should be fine, can't short circuit something if there's no electricity flowing. GPUs are actually pretty resilient and don't really break unless you blatantly abuse them and try to wreck them.

If it was off and you shocked it with static, you could have potentially killed it.

 

The odds of that are absolutely minuscule. You're fine as long as it wasn't energized.

It can survive a poke, it's when you start to scratch stuff and cut traces you get into trouble.

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

It seems fine, when it's a scratch it's usualy quite shiny and noticable.

But because everything works, i wouldn't worry.
