uh, don't kick it?  I think you said that nothing is wrong.  So listen
to yourself.

Ain't broke.  don't fix it.  If it does ever short, shut down and put
a thin, small piece of plastic between the closest point of contact,
and electrical tape it in place.  There may already be one there....
or... exercise the warranty?

Or replace the cooler and/or video card with a less obnoxious one from newegg.
