My noctua nh d14 fan clips won't fit on my mobo so I removed it from the heatsink. But it still touches my gpu, is this configuration safe or it kinda short gpu or what? Please I need help, this is my 2nd cpu cooler for this build and i don't want to waste money.

Motherboard: MSI B85M E45
GPU: Sapphire Toxic R9 280X

Yes, i removed the one clip of the fans, so the metals of noctua touches the backplate of my gpu, they're in contact but not pushing away each other..

be carefull there , this may create a short ,
slip a thin piece of plastic or cardboard between the gpu and tower fan clips to prevent this happening if you can and you should be ok

Ok thanks, I'm completely lost, my mobo sucks, I'll go buy and sell. I'm looking forward to msi b85m g43 gaming, for $114..
