PCIe slot protector? Just slide the cover downwards, away from the card.

You don't have to, just make sure you lock the I/O shield of the graphics card to the expansion card bracket on the case.

How do i expose the connector pins? never installed a graphics card this big or heavy, the connector pins are covered at the moment with gigabyte branded hard cover. Also, will I need the MSI Graphics Card Bolster for this? never used a 3 fan graphics card before.

Just slide it off. It's a slide on protector, usually a bit rubbery plastic. Gently pull down on each of the edges and ease it off the PCIe connector.

I'm trying to install the gpu and set up the computer outside of the case, so I can test its stability and OC it before I put it in the case, but at the moment unsure if the gpu is supposed to easily slide into the pcie slot or am i supposed to apply pressure and wait for it to click in? at the moment the pcie connector pns are still exposed when I try to slide it into the pcie slot.

Managed to get it in but one side slid in before the other, will that cause any issues? just wondering if its supposed to slide in all as one like with RAM sticks.

Yep, it needs to click into place. There is a tab on the end of the PCIe slot, that should pop up once the card is properly seated.

The graphics card is wider then the mobo, and i cant tell if the tab is unable to pop up due to the size of the card or just hasn't been prompted to do so yet.

 

Keep in mind that Im assembling this outside the case, if it'll hold in place once in the case then im ok with that.

So I cant actually see underneath the gpu to tell if the tab popped up or not, but I do know that the gpu feels firmly stuck in and I heard a click/pop sound when I put it in again, however, the gpu is touching another part of the mobo to the right side and when I feel underneath the gpu for the tab i get the sense that it actually hasn't popped up. Unsure what to do next, as gpu is proving difficult to remove now.

on second check it does seem the tab actually did pop up, however I have concerns about the gpu touching the sata 5 and 6 connectors on the mobo (I can just about fit a business card thinner then a credit card in between them, and see a very slight gaps between them if i look catefully), could that cause issues? especially with cooling?

all of your worries are only worried by newcomers, just do it it's fine.
