I scratched my motherboard a good bit when trying to unlock my graphics card from my PCIe slot, and I was wondering if this is severe or not. I've booted with another test card, as the one I was taking out was fried due to a coke accident, and from what I could tell the card was not displaying. I might have had the wrong cable or adapter or something but I don't know. If anyone wants more details to fix this problem I can provide, but I mainly want to know if my motherboard is as dead as my card is.
The motherboard is an MSI B360A-PRO for anyone wondering.
(card fried was an MSI GTX 970; card I tested after was an MSI GT 720)



Sorry for the dust, i'm out of canned air.

Directly above the "M" in "MSI", Centered on the slot release, ~1/2" long.

It's not a very good photo but it looks like it's just a scratch in the conformal coating and nothing to worry about.
I can provide a better picture if you want, I also found one of my problems,
I never plugged in CPU power and I feel like a grandure idiot right now.

hahah :) Yes that CPU power connector is neede. Is the system working?
Yes, it's working, but the card that had the accident only provides DVI, that on my part though because those were the ports that were affected. All is well now, fortunately, and no more problems as of right now.
