No idea if he meant by processor being coerced or if you didn’t know what he said exactly.
If the power source is not functioning properly, it could result in problems with a system that is not running properly if a video card is used.
What is the issue specifically? You may want to start your question at the beginning rather than in the middle. What do you mean “with a stock fan behind”?
6How can I tell if my graphics card is dying?
– Programs Randomly Stuttering or Slowing Down.
– Crashing When Doing Any Graphics-Intensive Task.
– Random Graphical Glitches That Weren’t There Before.
– Excessive Heat While Doing Things It Used to Do Fine.

9What causes a motherboard to fail?
Heat dissipation is vital, especially if you are overclocking—fans, heatsinks, and liquid cooling are all important.
Overheating is becoming more prevalent with laptops due to their small cases and closely spaced components, but if you don’t clean the dust out of your PC regularly, it won’t matter. In both your case and component, too much dust will eventually clog your PCs ventilation system, making it choke on hot air and dirt.
Other motherboard killers include partially connected or incorrectly connected cables, improperly mounted components, and electrical surges and power surges. However, all of these items are ones you can safely protect yourself against. If you’re building or owning a PC, take your time to put it together, and make sure you plug your PC and your peripherals into a quality surge shield.
Using your PC in another area to consider is traveling. Not all countries operate on the same voltage.
10How do I know if my graphics card is fried?
– Abnormal Fan Noise or Performance Many cards have cooling fans that are supposed to spin at a higher rate only when the GPU is under load. Bearings in the fans will die prematurely, so don’t be concerned if one of your followers is inactive while browsing the web.
11How do I know if my graphics card is corrupted?
– Games Underperforming. It’s a tale as old as time.
– Computer Crashes. Graphics cards that have gone rogue can cause a PC to crash.
– Loud Fan Sounds.
– Driver Crashes.
– Black Screens.
– Change In-Game Settings.
– Update the Drivers.

14Is it easy to damage a motherboard?
Silicon isn’t the hardest stuff in the world; it’s possible to crack transistors or separate traces from chips or other components; a whole list of potential accomplishments for screwdrivers is given. If it did or not, whether it was enough to break the trace or not, whether it was more than a light scratch on the protective film is something you will find out when using the pc. It’s entirely likely that there isn’t a problem, or if there is one, it is in an area you don’t use.
However, to correct a previous post, capacitors are similar to batteries in one respect, so even if the mobo is in a powered down state, there is a component on the mobo that is still working, so a discharge via short is entirely possible, but it may or not do anything depending on the cap and exact route of the short.
