You can always use clear nail polish over the trace to cover it again so it doesn't short out.

Clear nail polish can be mildly acidic and cause corrosion, do I don't recommend this but as long add you didn't sever the trace nothing will happen

Just test it out if it works

I think it will work in 8x slot if bus is damaged and still work

When i drilled the screw, there was small pieces of metal that i just blew away.. Should i have used some compressed air or do you think im okay?

yes you should clean it up to avoid metallic powder to come into contact with anything electrically exposed on your graphics card and motherboard.

Test the card then in the 16x port and tell us how it goes (suggestion, try a very graphics intensive game like BF3 so you will have tested it for the most situations). Only then you will know it is ok. Asking numerous questions around the same issue will not help to find any solution until you test it. And don,t forget to reinstall the cooling case and fan.

You should use something like 3d mark or unigine heaven benchmark because NVIDIA made a patch that throttles the gpu to prevent users from burning their gpu.

3d mark it is then. Anyway, the card had no problem running furmark and it certainly didn't throttle.

Everything seems to be just fine. I just ran Firestrike Extreme with no problem.
