Hi, ok so I got a used 3090.

swapped the pads.

however two of the screws have stripped.

stupid because I was using Ifixit 00 screws for them, how can such an expensive board use cheap screws?!

ok so I can leave the card how it is as it’s running fine, but I can’t clean it or anything.

any advice on how to remove the stripped screws? Oh and the screws that are stripped are located around the chip, not the backplate.

Stripped the heads or the threads? And do you have replacement screws if needed?
