Had a problem today was hardly getting into bios and as I made the mistake of trying to re-attach the last and third fan I just put on recently on the heatsink I realized what was going on...The lovely crappy clips that are of course metal on the fan made contact with back of my video card as this pc was running...several sparks from the spot I touched on video card and instantly pc was off but light was still on mobo. So stupid....what was I thinking? But I did it and realized that clip wasn't totally on to start with so it made contact with card before and that is why when pci express bus was loading in bios it was hanging more and more often when I restarted pc. Amazingly after possible repeated shorting out I didn't know about and the big short I did myself....pc started up again fine and now isn't hanging in bios etc. Anyway, just a reminder to all don't rush and think before you do something unlike what I did. Never did anything to that degree in the decade + i've done in pc building. Anyway everything appears to still work so tough to lose the card but it may have already had issues and had it for a couple years RIP MSI gtx 980.
