Will covering this with an electrical tape work? Since only the outer part is damage, internal seems fine. If I remember correctly PCI-E only use 75W of power so I am thinking that an electrical tape can handle it. This was punctured by the pin headers from the motherboard.

I thought it was just a bad gen 4 riser cable at first since it was working fine for the first 2 weeks then I started experiencing high gpu usage even on idle on DWM (Desktop Windows Manager), CSRP (Client Server Runtime Process), and System after long idle or sleep mode. I can't even watch videos because of this high gpu usage, videos will keep on lagging. Then bluescreens happened lately that's why I decided to remove the riser and saw the problem.

BTW, this is the Universal Vertical Graphics Card Holder Kit V2 (PCIE4.0) from Cooler Master.
