How do u reach GPU PCIe- latch ? without breaking stuff
I have a huge silverarrow 2x140mm CPU cooler so it's always been tricky to un-latch the PCIe slot the past few years. My hands aren't fat, but there's barely any room for my hand when there's no GPU backplate. This time I have a backplate on the GPU, so that's good in a way, and I used a ruler to "hit" the button several times, for real, it's not easy to un-latch.
Then I put in a M.2 NVMe in the upper slot, and put the GPU back in. And there's barely 1-2mm from the PCIe latch, upwards to the M.2 drive, and it's not protected at all, just bare little SMD parts on a PCB. This is going to be SUPER SUPER RISKY to un-latch the GPU without hitting the M.2
It's crazy, I'm really worried. IDK if I could have used the lower #2 M.2 slot, never occurred to me, I was thinking #1 would always have to be used 1st.
What do u guys do or suggest ? If the tool jumps upwards at all, it's going to smash into the M.2
