Hold MSI RTX 2080 Ti Trio with one screw?
 
Hey there,

While Installing my new 2080 Ti, the first screw started to reach a point where I can tighten it a little bit before it turns lose again. Is that a safety issue or shouldn't I worry that the first screw doesn't tighten as tight anymore?

Are there solutions to get it right again?

Did you try another screw? if not try that and if there is no problem with the second screw throw the first one away and use the second one

To which screw are you referring exactly?

One of the 2 screws that hold your GPU in the slot of your chassis.

Yeah, it is the winding if the hole which is not allowing the screw to tighten up again, it tightens up a little bit and then when you turn it further it gets loose again, typcial wear problem.

As long as it's solidly anchored to the case you have nothing to worry about.

Sounds like you stripped your case's screw 'hole.' I wouldn't worry too much about only using one screw (unless you move/abuse your computer a lot); no issues using only one with my 1080 TI Gaming X Trio (I assume it is similar in size/weight to the 2080 Ti Trio). If you are worried about it, you could look for an even larger (diameter, not length) screw (don't over tighten it or you'll have the same issue again).

Just out of curiosity, what case is this?

I don't know about only one screw, X Trio is a very heavy card and if that one screw were to fail your PCIE is holding all that weight.
