    ok.
    2+ years later.
    Time to fix this.
    I am about to remove everything from the case and see if that will change anything.
    Then take it from there.
    Wish me good luck.
    As for my previous post, no...I haven't tested it yet with different PSU/GPU.

    If it ends up being the motherboard's fault, I will agree with you. Otherwise, I don't have any other experience with X99.
    It looks cool though and as a motherboard, it was loaded. I mean, is loaded.
    BTW, it has an M.2 X4 slot on the motherboard, but it is vertical to the motherboard, which I find confusing.

    While it's not overly common locally, the x99 mainboards i'd tried to sort out for some people when weird stuff has been happening has been consistently the source of the problems that totally randomly pop up. Almost akin to what has occured with intel's gaud awful 28 core cpu and board combo for HEDT using the what is it, 3654 socket or something like that.

    Anyways, It biggest issue is that in the end, it's almost always the best option to swap the boards out to test and back again to confirm as the first course of action.

    The x58 boards were kinda finicky as well at the start but overall were problem free. x79 boards were rock solid from the get go, then intel somehow fucked up with the x99 boards as even LATER revisions are prone to just either being DOA or giving a false sense of security only to throw a hissy fit randomly.

    Either way, hopefully it's not hair pulling and maybe something will just work... i just know that dealing with the few x99 situations, it's not a pleasant experience.

    I can't remove this bloody screw out of the motherboard. I have no tweezers, no magnets, nothing to stick to it. I can unscrew it, but not remove it. I even held the whole computer upside down. Nothing. Frustrating

    Wouldn't recommend using a magnet.

    ....

    It's not good for the components.

    In fact, magnetic screwdrivers are bad too.

    Edit: I do keep a magnetic screwdriver for getting little screws that fall some place they shouldn't though but that is the extent of how far I have gone with magnetic screwdrivers.

    As I said I have no magnet to begin with, but if I were to use one, I wouldn't use anything larger than a car.
    Can I borrow your magnetic screwdriver?

    Pigeons are sluts. Doves is where the money's at.

    Doves are not only old school, but also sooo last year.

    Pigeons are economical, and high efficiency.

    Problem solved.
    Now it's too late to continue working on it, more tomorrow.

    it won't hurt to use a magnet, even a fridge magnet or something stronger... it's not like it's powered up and that you're JAMING the magnet into the circuitry.

    The other side of the case where that screw is.. I take it that it's not accessible? That you can't put pressure on the screw hold from the other side?

    One idea: double sided tape. Place a piece on the screw, and one on the screw driver. Should stick to each other pretty good when you go to pull on the screw. Another idea would be to lay the case on it's side so the screw head sits upright, and put a drop of glue on the head. Before it almost sets try the screwdriver again.

    The first one I never thought about. That's embarrassing. Thankfully for my sanity it isn't that easy to do so. The specific case is divided into the motherboard section (which you see in the photo) and the lower section where all the hard drives, optical drives, hot swap hard drives, power supply and cables go, so it would be a pain to try it.

    The double sided tape I tried, but I found it impossible for it to stick to the screw. I didn't try glue because I didn't have one.

    Thankfully as I said I managed to remove it. I turned the case 90 degrees (on its ass) and because the power supply protrudes I was able to have it stand at an 80 degree angle. (or something). There I screwed it back in, just a bit, and then unscrewed it again and with the help of the mighty gravity, it fell.
