    Dan A4 - riser cable on the GPU side?

    How dangerous / stupid this is..? GPU riser cable is set on the GPU side, behind the plastic separator When GPU is inserted, it's resting on the plastic separator, but is not tight too much. I'm just looking at it and wonder how stable that plastic is, since it's touching GPU metal backplate?
