Hey there,

Just managed to get my 3070 in today and went to install it only to encounter an issue, the thickness of the 3070 founders edition chassis makes it so that it is hiting up against the aorus X570 pro's chipset fan shroud as shown in image 1. This means that I cannot insert the 3070 all the way into the pcie slot and so it sticks out ever so slightly as shown in image 2 (and yes I have removed the pcie slot covers).

With a little bit of force I was still able to close the locking latch but I'm unsure if I should power on the computer with the GPU installed like this. I cannot see any gold pins sticking out but I'm not sure. Is this safe to use?

Here are the images:

I made sure the latch was fully closed and turned the pc on. With the screws installed there seems to be very little play. So far doesn't seem like there's any issues. Thanks!
