Scratched Motherboard - How bad is it?

I got clumsy and scratched my mobo during installation



How bad is it? Is there any point in finishing the build or should I get a new one?

Thanks guys.

  1. You are probably OK. Doesn't look to me that any of the circuitry is broken. Build your system and if there are problems, at least you will know where to start looking.
  2. Clean it up and look at the traces better. Theres a 'dented' area north of the scratches you need to check too.
    But Spooky offers good advice if you don't spot any obvious broken runs.
  3. The obvious scratches aren't too bad. There is some abrasion right above the scratches which is hard to tell how deep they are. All in all, I think you will be fine.
  4. Okay thanks guys, I'm going to finish the build and cross my fingers for a boot so I'll get back to ya.

    EDIT: Everything seems to be working fine, thanks guys for the confidence in finishing my build.
