My 2070 XC Ultra is the first GPU I've owned in recent memory that has zero sag. I've had it for well over a year now. I think the extra stability from the 3rd screw for the 3 slot design goes a long way. It's made me a big believer in thicker GPU's, not longer.
No sagging of any kind in my main rig, since the CPU and GPU coolers are "vertical" in the Cooler Master HAF XB EVO. I absolutely love this little box of a case. My kitchen computer started with an R9 280 from MSI that sagged a bit, then moved to a Sapphire Pulse RX580 that didn't really sag at all, now it has an Asus DCU3 980Ti and that thing sagged so bad it kept me up at night.
I tried fishing wire first, couldn't find a good place to tie it. Didn't have enough LEGO to reach the GPU from the bottom of the NZXT Source 530. I ended up rewiring the PCIe Power cables to come out of the top rubber grommet, so now the dual 8 pin connectors are actively pulling upward against the sag.
I use the support bracket from the Arctic Eccelero Xtreme 4, even though i have an Xtreme 3 with little heatsinks.
Ofource this thing only works with reference boards.
If you google for "gpu support bracket" there are plenty out there that do a similar job.
Really? i had no idea, from the pictures it looked bigger.
Yea this card looks sweet, but it had a factory issue i think, one of the fan blades was thicker then the others and it hit the plastic above the fan blades.
Tho's fan blades are strong as hell, the build quality is unbelievable lol, i couldn't bend it at all. I pushed the fan a little with force, so far it doesn't hit it anymore.
There was a time I remember here people used to be outraged at 2 slot graphic cards. Now 3 and 4 is becoming the norm.
I use a cheap mounting from AliExpress, easy to fit and low cost.
Which is fine, since SLI is dead anyways.
And 3-4 slots means a more quiet cooler.
Mine's pretty perky
Not in silicon valley.
My card is MSI Nuke 1080Ti and in spite of it´s size it´s not very heary heavy because the cooler shroud is made of plastic and there seems to be no sagging at all. My Asus board al seems to have sturdy PCI connectors for the GPU.
I bet that isn't all that's sagging, buddy. Amiright?
