I notice my new Graphic card hangs down in my PC because its quite heavy than my old Graphic card. But is fully inserted in the PCI-E slot.

So I wedged a tiny piece of wood between the Graphic card and my HDD to make the Graphic card look level.

So I need to know is a small piece of wood safe inside my PC?

Its not going to cause fire or anything like that ?

Thanks

Is the metal plate screwed in correctly to the case?

Its unlikely to set fire but anything can happen, i heard people having water cooling loops that set fire so, i would suggest like a but of rope or thick string or something like that and tie it to your card to the top of the case, other than that theres not much you can do
