There's white clips at the end of the PCI-e slot itself. You have to push them downwards towards the bottom of the motherboard and pull at the same time.

Breaking those white tabs could negate any warranty on the board.

But as was already stated, push the white tab down while pulling out the card.

i know, but ive seen 2 dead(physically) mobos and one card or two the past couple months
from the exact cause as above :)

at least this guy asked before pulling stronger. one guy killed his classy and dual 570's(he tried with the puter on lol)

Or... in the case of slot 1 and 5, pull the extended tap 'up' and pull the card at the same time...

*Edit* But I assume this has been taken care of since it was posted 5 days ago. Didn't even notice.
