Are you talking about these?
If you are, you should be fine to use the slot still.
Those are just locks for the GPU. Why were you pushing down on them?
They lift up and pull out the GPU...

Hi guys, I'm gonna be joining here soon... just ordered it also included a Radeon 5770 all box new. So once it gets here I'll instantly set crossfire on 5770(since I already have an xfx 5770) then add my other 2 videos cards an Nvidia 9800GTX+ for Physics & an ATI HD4650(just for an extra display monitor)... I'll be quad set up.. even though I wish they were all 5770's to make quadfire.

So my set up would be upgraded to...
-AMD Phenom X4 965BE C3 @ 4Ghz
-MSI 790FX-GD70
-ATI's Radeon 5770 / XFX 5770 xFire
-Nvidia 9800GTX+
-ATI HD4650
-8gb DDR3-1333
-1TB Hitachi - 500GB Seagate - 400GB Seagate
-Zalman MFC1 Plus + 7 x 120mm CMR4's Red LED fans
-Noctua NH-D14

Do you guys think I can run it fine on my Corsair TX850w? or do I need to get a bigger PSU?
*NOTE* I will be soon upgrading my CPU to a 1090tBE just incase if that matters with this question too.

that sucks

I honestly don't understand how people break them, I'm constantly changing video cards & I have never had any issues taking out graphic cards with those lock things... its just a little lift up & the card should already be released. I've already had more than 5 boards... this MSI 790FX-GD70 is going to be my 6th board & have 3 different graphic cards(now getting my 4th too)... I have tons of experience with those gpu locks.

Think of it this way(what i always have in my mind when touching the MB).... always when messing with a motherboard.. think that its worth more than $20,000... and pretty certain from now on you would always be extremely careful with your MB when changing stuff.

Ah dont worry about it, ive done the same to my board, some people dont have alot of stuff so its easy for them to pull out there graphics with there tiny fingers.

Then theres us with 2tonne graphics cards eg 4870x2 or 5970, trying to be careful with mobo and gpu, to be honest why cant msi design abit better like ive seen on other boards eg asus i think where its a rotating leaver instead of some crappy 2-3mm piece os crummy plastic expecting to hold down a huge graphics card.

So long as the card is locked by the screws when installing and you give it a firm push into the slot while installing it wont come loose, even if you have move your case to the horizontal position to access your parts.

I know this is traterous (even though i love this board) does any one know when the Asus Crosshair IV Xtreme is coming out. i know 8-series has been released for a while now.

This may have already been asked before but the thread is so big, I'll just go ahead and ask it anyway.

I'm looking for a waterblock for the MOSFETs. Already have the chipset blocks and a good CPU block, just need the MOSFET block if I can find one to complete my WC'ing the system.
Does anyone know where to find a block for the MOSFETs? I can find them no prob for an Asus or Gigabyte but for an MSI setup, I've yet to see one anywhere. Until then, I can't do much except except cool the CPU since Dr. MOS is a one-piece unit.

Ah, great! Thanks for the replies. When I was pushing my gpu into the second slot, the flap/lock for the third slot happened to get under the black plastic on my gpu and since I was pushing down on my gpu, the flap/lock was forced down towards the board and that's how it came off.

your psu should be able to do it. i use a seventeam850 and use 4 gpus.

thanks... that is why i asked you over at the 5770 club to see how your setup looks(since its close to my plan)... I had noticed you were running an 850w PSU by your system info.

I'm gonna order the 3rd 5770 next week I'll join you in Trifire
