Removing it is just as easy and as fast. Unplug the power cable(s), unscrew the screw, press the PCI-E tab in to release the card, and pull the card out.

I think it's even faster than that. If my computer didn't need to be cleaned (ugh), then I could turn my computer off RIGHT NOW, pull my card out, put it back in, and be back here in under 5 minutes. If you want, I can suffer through the disgusting dust to prove it. Actually, I don't know how I'd prove it without a video, but ...... you get the idea.

Twocables I suffer from a precious illness called OCD. Here is what I did I took my computer to my kitchen as there was no carpet (to avoide static). I then put on my anti static wrist band. I then began to remove the case slowly. I then unscrewed the screws holding my old video card. And then gently pulled out my old card. After that I opened my new card only to find out it was heavier then the old one. After finally struggling to find out the most effective way to place my new card into the slot I then found out that putting in the screws into the video card holder was a pain in the you know what. My fingers could not reach the holes as my case was designed that way. I did not want to accidental drop the screws on top of the motherboard as to avoid any damages. I finally managed to get one screw in but later realized the other screw required the same expertise. Once that was all in there. I had to figure out a way to plug back my chassis fan without pulling or bending the pins ( the fan cable is short) I also had to get another person to hold the case door for me. So as you can see all of this was done precisely otherwise I would feel very guilty and depressed. Now stupid Asus is asking me to repeat the same thing again.

If you think you got OCD bad, then you should live with me for a day. I would drive you nuts. You'd be like, "does it really take you that long to make a meal?", "does it really take you that long to eat it?", "does it really take you that long to take a shower?", etc. etc. etc.

 

Seriously, installing a video card and pulling one out should take 5 minutes tops. You pull the side panel off, set it down somewhere, unplug the PCI-E power cable(s), unscrew the screw, press in the PCI-E slot lock to release the card, and pull the card out. Then, you set it down PCB side up. Putting it back in is even easier: put it into the slot until it locks into place, screw the screw in, plug the PCI-E power cable(s) in, then put the side panel back on.

 

There's nothing that should take you longer than 5 minutes.

 

By the way, never unscrew the screw(s) before you lay the case down on its side. You do it while it's still upright. This way, you don't have to worry about dropping the screws into the computer and losing them for 30 minutes.

First, you don't need an anti-static wristband. Most people don't. I've never used one, and I've always worked on carpet and my computer has always been fine. You just use common sense: don't touch critical parts on the PCB while walking around in your socks, and don't touch a metal object to any critical parts.

 

You don't have to move slowly. Good grief. Just pull the panel off, unplug the fan (just yank the damn thing off the pins, it can take it), unscrew the card, lay the PC down on its side, and pull the damn card out. Oh wait, I forgot to unplug the power cables. heh You get the idea.

 

You're being overly-cautious and moving far slower than you need to. You don't need to do it in the kitchen, but of course, kitchen tables can make great work spaces due to the height, placing your computer right where you need it to be - plus, if you have a light right above the table, then that's even better.

 

You don't have to baby the living daylights out of your computer though. Don't be careless, but you don't have to be scared. There are people who can build their entire computer in like 10 minutes or so.

That video makes me want to give him a big hug. I don't know why. Like, "bro, please calm down. Life is good." ...or something.

 

I related to that a good deal, but not fully. I find that the better I do with keeping my deficiencies at bay (vitamins, nutrients, minerals), the less OCD and anxiety I have. Some of the big ones are B12 (in the form of methylcobalamin - VERY IMPORTANT) and Folate. I can't forget B6 either, in the form of Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate.

 

Balance and proper nutrition does wonders for our human bodies.

"By the way, never unscrew the screw(s) before you lay the case down on its side."

You are a genius Why didn't I think of that WOW Thanks!! smile.gif ^^^^


So true I think nutrition play an important role. But I think the main factor is stress.

When ever I am put through stress that's when I experience OCD.

So here we go again my OCD Just kicked in.. If I unscrew the screws before laying my computer down that will put stress on the pci slot frown.gif. OR If I install the new video card and then stand my computer upright before puting in the screws that will also put stress on the pci slot .... Damn me and my OCD.

It took me faaarrrr longer to figure this one out than I am willing to admit. Ahem. I built my first computer in March of 2008. I think I've only been keeping my computer upright for unscrewing the screw and screwing it back in for maybe a couple of years at the most. Guess how many times I've dropped the screw into the computer. Guess how many times I've decided against cleaning my computer because I didn't want to deal with possibly dropping the screw into the computer again, or just because I didn't want to deal with that moment of, "omg, I must be careful. Omg, I must be careful. Omg, omg, omg, omg omg NO IT ALMOST FELL IN [RHYMES WITH TRUCK]!! GET IT QUICK!" Stressful.

 

Then one day all I wanted to do was pull out my sound card for some reason..... or some simple device like that. So, I decided that I didn't need to lay the computer down for surgery so to speak. As usual, I dropped the screw after unscrewing it and I was like, "OMG the screw fell onto the floor!! WOO-HOO! Look! I can pick it up no problem! There it is in my hands 2 seconds after dropping it!" I was excited. lol From that moment on, it was "always mess with the screw with the computer in the upright position!!! Always, always, ALWAYS!"

 

So now when I'm about to put a screw back in, I stand the computer up. "Ok, get up! It's time for your screw!" Or, "No, don't lay down yet: I still have to take out one of your screws!"

Same here. :( :( :(

 

That's usually when it feels like I go nuts the most.

Nope! That's not a concern at all. The screw's job is to keep the component EXTREMELY secure for plugging things into it or unplugging things. Without the screw holding the thing in place (be it a video card or a sound card), plugging something into the back becomes a little nerve-wracking. I dislodged my sound card once, and so then I stopped using my screwless features of my case. lol

 

You know, something just occurred to me: another thing you can do is, put pantyhose over the tip of a vacuum hose and then turn the vacuum on and "suck" the screw up against the pantyhose as you loosen it all the way.

 

Or, use double-sided tape to grab it before it has a chance to fall.

 

Or a good magnet.
