Gotta get yourself a GPU brace, fam.

This one is actually really aesthetically pleasing

u/piokor06 · 13 pointsr/buildapc

I just got this on amazon to help with sag on my 1080. Mine was sagging less than yours but this was only $20 and an excuse to open up the computer and work on it a little bit.

If youre really worried, This is fairly cheap, and looks good.

u/xxxDredgexxx · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

I bought one of the Atlas Brackets several months back, just peace of mind. As I despise case windows and RGB in general it's purely for support.

u/BigBlackPenis · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

Oh, shit, I was just looking at this on Amazon.

Anyway, I'm hesitant since I'm looking for a GPU brace that can be used for a PC that's going to be lugged around as well. Been searching for months, and found these options:

mnpctech I'm liking this the most because it's made of metal, has more options, but it's also the most expensive.

Puget Systems
Probably the first GPU brace on the market. I remember it used to have 4+ star reviews but now it's dropped.

Atlas This is new, and I'm liking it the second most.

MSI Another new option I've never seen. I like how the pole braces against the top and bottom of your PC case, but I can't stand the MSI Gaming logo even though I have an MSI 480.

u/SubBassKidd · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/wellzor · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Only markings I can see are "THLVL" and it should be this thing:

u/ireallylikechikin · 6 pointsr/buildapc

you could get a GPU brace/bracket or put something underneath it to keep it from sagging.

some people use legos or wooden blocks.

u/lizcoco · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Hi guys! It's been a couple months since I built my first computer. Did some spring cleaning today and updated the colors and realized that I never updated with my new keyboard, which I believe brings the whole build together. :)

Of course, constructive criticism always welcome! My boyfriend helped me with this first build, and it's definitely lopsided as far as the CPU and GPU goes, but I think of it as a work in process. :)

u/Used_Taco · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Gpu sag is normal. Most people don't worry about it. It does bother me, though. Of course mine sags a lot more than that. I use this.

u/GiantNinja · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

they have some brackets for this:


was thinking about getting one, but I'm going to mount vertically instead.

u/mdamaged · 5 pointsr/buildapc

Yeah, not something one wants, it can be argued it puts strain on the slot, you could either prop it up with legos (or some other creative way), or get something like this.

u/heymikedude · 4 pointsr/CableManagement

Looks like it might be this.

u/Kellen_Heller86 · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I bought this to hold up my Zotac amp extreme 1070 which is a massive sized card with 3 fans as well. Worked really great for me other than I had to modify it a little bit but that was due to my case.

u/SatSenses · 4 pointsr/buildapc

There are support brackets you can screw in to the expansion slots to reinforce the card, or standing support brackets that you can use. I'm on mobile so I'm not sure how you'll see the links as I do.

I did a ghetto fix too, using $5 fishing line but I'm not encouraging it.

This is what I am getting, and I used something very similar in the past, I also have an clear LED panel that is rgb that will go over the top of the lattice work.

u/VuppesaurusRex · 3 pointsr/buildapc

A little sag is normal and shouldn't be anything to worry about. However you could pick something like the Atlas Graphics Card Brace to prop it up, assuming you have some empty bays and clearance beneath your card. But in general, it's not necessary.

u/Wulf6489 · 3 pointsr/hardwareswap
u/code7747 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

you can get one here its a decent buy, i have one my self

u/AMP_US · 3 pointsr/buildapc
u/SinisterHumanoid · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Could always machine/3D print a brace similar to the card supports that you screw in with the thumb screws.

the S340 has a shroud you could rest the mount on with support beams.

As for the CM bracket, your best bet is to see if you return it if it doesn't work out at all for you.

u/Excal2 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Probably because there are plenty of mATX cases that only have two PCI-e slots in the back of the case. It'd be unwise to exclude tiny case builders and HTPC builders from an enthusiast market.

You could try something like this if you're having sag issues:

u/GodFlash · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Whether or not your hardware's at risk depends on how much it's sagging. If you wanna fix it though, there are different kinds that you can buy like this one on Amazon. I know MSI sells one for holding up multiple GPU's, too. Alternatively, if your case can support one, you can join the cool kids club and get a vertical GPU mount. I've also seen someone do a cheap DIY solution by tying some thin fishing line to the top of the case and GPU and holding it up that way.

u/giantfood · 3 pointsr/nvidia
u/Iamnotyourhero · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Yeah unfortunately there's really not a lot out there. I found this Puget one that looks like it would snap if I tried using it with my 980Ti, and this one which I think is fugly, and probably also wont fit.

u/frostcanadian · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I use this for my Asus Strix 1080ti

u/SC_Druggie · 2 pointsr/gamingpc

Gonna SLI, and I really prefer the normal mount. I did buy a graphics card brace though to help with the sag. It's on its way.

u/Alchemistzero · 2 pointsr/nvidia
u/Baeissa · 2 pointsr/nvidia

I went with ASUS STRIX because I have ASUS HERO MB. It's just me, I like going with the same brand. I believe the STRIX will have sag after time, not convinced of its anti sag bracket. I bought this to help
There are other products similar but I already have this. Not sure if it's gonna work as this support brace is meant for 2 slot cards but it seems flexible and may help.

u/rj33 · 2 pointsr/nvidia

They told me the same thing, I was bout no?

Maybe I should email them back with this solution, so they dont keep telling people to RMA their cards.

Also: I bought this to support the card and it works great.

u/Comrade_Kitten · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Seen this GPU brace being used

u/Vexagon_ · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/MHzBurglar · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I bought one of these and it works great!

u/wtfburritoo · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/WeShouldGoThere · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Subjecting liquid cooling to external pressure changes is asking for seal failure. Use air cooling.

Subjecting HDD to vibration is asking for premature disk failure. Use a cloud repository and SSD.

To avoid GPU removal use something like this.

u/golli123 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I am really not convinced that those reinforced slots prevent much sag. If you are really worried about that then you could either look at something like this if you have a slot open below the GPU. Some also just make a small pillar out of e.g. lego bricks to give the card a bit more support, that would be a rather easy and cheap solution

u/_Gingy · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I've seen in another thread a while back someone got one of these

u/Fatchicken1o1 · 2 pointsr/nvidia

It has to be this one.

u/RogueSorcerer · 2 pointsr/nvidia

Here is a link for a great looking brace. Don't know how important aesthetics are for you but it is less than $18.

u/FastRedPonyCar · 2 pointsr/pcmods

I bought mine off ebay. Looks like they're either not selling right now or out of stock. I don't see it listed on their site so they may have discontinued.

There's this one though.

u/chaoswreaker · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Might want to try something like this for some proper support for that GPU.

u/obxSandDevil · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

This is a pretty popular support bracket to help with GPU sag.

u/NSippy · 2 pointsr/computers

There's always bracing options like this

u/cerberus-01 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

^ This. There are a few different options.

This is a bracket that will run along the bottom of the card to support it.

This is a DIY fix. I would recommend this if you are strapped for cash. The guy explains what you need to do it; basically a trip to the hardware store and 2 minutes to get the correct height.

u/wwjr · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Looks good man! I just built mine with somewhat of the same setup. Just a recommendation, since this is brand new, you should pick up one of these GPU bracket supports I noticed mine started to sag after a few months. It's normal for these big GPU's to sag and isn't bad or anything, I just think it looks nice when it's setup nice. The bracket looks good inside a build too.

u/netjive8 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I've heard good things about this GPU support bracket.

u/street_grade · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

That sag... I'd recommend buying a brace. I know motherboards are designed with sag in mind, but sag really worries me. I picked up this brace and it looks clean and provides plenty of support. Awesome build though, very clean.

u/Grizzled--Kinda · 2 pointsr/buildapc

There are some cool gpu supports on amazon

u/CaptainPlummet · 2 pointsr/watercooling

I’m not as familiar with the o11 as most users here are, but you could install your other radiator in that area to the right of your mobo and have fans blowing through it as exhaust. That way you can bypass the whole bottom radiator situation. Then you can install a fan bracket (after purchasing one) on one of those fans to hold your pump.

This album is a good example of what I mean and it’s a popular layout for components. You could also do a vertical mount for your GPU if you’re worried about sag, or you could get one of these. I know this would all require ordering more things and waiting, but it would be worth it IMO.

u/Punished__Snake · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

> Will I have to worry about gpu sag? Should I get a support bracket?

GPU sag indeed is something that does seem to happen very randomly. I think that it's not something you have to really worry about too much. I haven't seen or heard about a single GPU destroying the motherboard it's PCI-e slot.
The old school method of "fixing" it, was to use a fish line.

But yes, you can also buy a support bracket. I wouldn't order this right away, this one blocks some PCI-e slots.

I would recommend to buy a GPU with a backplate, this helps a good amount with sag. But it can still happen, in general I really haven't seen a GPU die because of sagging.

> For the keyboard I will probably just go to that pc store I mentioned a while back and just see if I can try out some keyboards in person and get one that fits me well. For the mouse the mionix seems great, I'll probably side with that.

Sweet! Yes it's really nice to get a feel for the mechanical switch before you buy it. Also, a mechanical switch is very different compared to laptops. So give it at least a couple of minutes, you have to get used to it!
But if you don't like it, then don't worry, there are lots of "flat" keyboards of high quality as well.

> I have to say, the more I read about these processors the more I'd like to overclock in the future.

Overclocking really isn't very difficult anymore these days. I've provided guides & the software that you need to overclock the CPU & GPU. It's really not too difficult and you should be able to do it, it only does take time! A good overclock needs at least 12 hours of stress testing.

> The external usb optical drive looks great. Never knew they existed! Can they write disks as well? The one you linked me seems like it can write and it comes at a pretty cheap price. Good deal.

Yup! It does write disks as well. CD & DVDs.

> How did you determine the power supply? I'm sure the 750 watts you chose is the correct one, just wondering for my own knowledge how and why you chose it. Just an online calculator? How much spare power will there be if I overclock in the future?

Reviews! Both the CPU & GPU are actually very power efficient. This system will pull around 250W at most under full load, 300W if you overclock heavily. Because when you overclock, you need to provide more voltage to the CPU & GPU thus more power is needed.
I went with 750W to allow the option for SLI later (adding a second GPU for more performance) if you ever want it.
This PSU is more than enough for overclocked CPU & GPUs.

  • GTX1070 power consumption (card only) 193W at it's peak for just the card. The rest of the system doesn't pull more than that either.
  • GTX1070 power consumption (full system) 225W during gaming, with an i7-6700K overclocked to 4,4GHz.
  • GTX1070 SLI power consumption (cards only) 329W for both GPUs, that's 421W left for the rest of the system before you hit 750W.

    > 'm thinking of a red/white theme in the red s340 case. How do I get some components to be red or white? I see many peoply just use high temp engine paint enamel. Can I remove the shields off the ram? How can I change the color of the fan rings? What about the cables?

    Yes, yes, yes, all possible. I can make the system more red & white. There are RAM sticks that are white, there are motherboards that are red & white. Cables are also available in red & white.

    It does easily add a lot of extra cost tho!

    > Oh and for the monitor I decided to stick with the one you already picked. I did some research on monitors and I think the asus pb258q is the right one for me. I play cs:go but not at all competitively. I do play a lot of killing floor as well.
    Can't wait to start the build!

    Awesome! I'll puzzle together a suggestion for you after I'm done with work later today.
u/truexchill · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/badpizzaisstillgood · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Or legos.

Or just don't mind it since it's not really an issue as long as you have it screwed in, almost all the weight is going into that screw/case.

u/ZappySnap · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Should be fine, but if you're concerned or want better aesthetics, something like this will be cleaner than using an ad-hoc solution like a figurine or the like:

u/samfreez · 2 pointsr/techsupport

If you can, move the fan from the top right to the top left, so there's a clearer path of intake to exhaust. Otherwise, it looks fine.

I would also highly recommend you get yourself a PCIe brace of some form, as it looks like your graphics card is sagging, which could lead to damage to the card and/or motherboard over time.

u/ROOKIE99 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Most people get a figurine or something under it to lift it up, but there are such things as this that help and look cool!

u/TTwoTerror · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I use This one for my Fury Nitro and it's fantastic!

u/Gonzo7896200 · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Yeah it'll definitely fit. Video cards are getting pretty heavy these days, but most of the weight is help by the two screws on the back of your case. With some cards, due to the way the weight is balanced on them, they can sometimes sag. Generally speaking, if there is any sag at all it is very minimal and will not affect the card in any way besides how it looks. Even so, it's not a bad idea to do something to correct the sag if you start to notice any. Every now and then a post will pop up in /r/PCMasterRace about someone fixing it in a unique way, but just putting anything beneath the far end of the card will keep it from sagging.

You could get a specialized tool, like this, or like this if it does start to sag. Alternatively, you could do something like what this guy, you could ziptie it, or you could use legos.

Anyway. Chances are you won't have to deal with any sag, but if you do there are some solutions for you.

Okay, so for your brother, you can probably do it and everything will be just fine, but there are a few issues. First of all, when you're looking at whether or not a PSU will be good enough, you want to look at the average output instead of the max, just so be sure that you aren't pushing it too hard. The PSU is the heart of your system. If it fails...well...other things will likely fail too and you'll be in a bit of trouble. The 960 draws aboout 100W at full load, and I doubt the i3 draws much either, but I can't know for certain without knowing its model number.

It would be nice to know specifics about the 350W PSU...does it even have the 6 pin connector for a video card? If not, do not use the molex to 6 pin adapter that is sometimes included. It's a great way to start a fire and/or kill components.

400W minimum is recommended for the 960, just so that you're sure to not blow anything up. If you've got the cash to spare, I would highly recommend upgrading your PSU, this one will ensure that nothing bad happens. If you can't afford the upgrade or anything, go ahead and put it in there and see how it runs, just make sure you don't do any overclocking at all. Like I said, everything will probably work, but it's always better for thing to be certain than it is for them to be probable.

Sorry if my replies seem somewhat less coherent, got my wisdom teeth out a few hours ago and I'm a tad bit loopy.

u/Odyssey_Seven · 1 pointr/Corsair

Cool, ordered the Commander. Should be in tomorrow. I have the same case but hate my board can't support all the fans.

Also, check this out. I have this and think it would be a good addition in getting that GPU up straight.

Image of my board I am building:

u/JoeyDJQ · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

It might be sagging slightly. No problem m8. I have the same card and just got this from Amazon to make it look better.

Check this out too. Makes the cables look nicer :)

u/screamtillitworks · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/Snicklefreetz · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/PharmFresh · 1 pointr/buildapc

I bought this for my 1080ti recently (Zotac Amp! Extreme). It got rid of the sag and was a quick install. My case is a Corsair 300R.

u/PlayDohBear · 1 pointr/nvidia

here's what i originally bought:

(out of stock now)

here are some other ones, although i'll say this. the reason i went with the above is due to the length being able to support the right side of the card (this is where the weight is shifting for mine).

(there are some with cool led's)

u/Craiger23 · 1 pointr/nvidia

Bit dark of a photo but the red looks very nice as a theme. I too use an MSI 1070 and went with Fourth Level Manufacturing's brace on amazon - Atlas Graphics Card Brace Support - 19 bucks retail

Looks like there out of stock at the moment but i got one for a discount recently and installed, as they didnt know if it would fit a 1070 as they said they couldnt get there hands on one themselves. It fits great, price is very good.. i'm only concerned if i can keep it in my case if i get a 2nd 1070 once the prices drops haha..

My own install can be seen @ Thanks!

u/ulzimate · 1 pointr/watercooling

This is the one I'm using, above all else I'd suggest using a magnetic screwdriver to install this. It was a huge pain in the ass. Other than that, I'm not sure how much I like it, but it seems to get the job done.

u/Wangfap · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

What about with a GPU brace? I've got one of these things and also threw some LEGO in there, mostly for looks but the LEGO man is touching the card.

u/vrpc · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Whatever motherboard you get next you should attempt to support the front of the GPU. I have seen some use a 2" wide piece of metal or acrylic that is attached right below the GPU and bent to support the GPU from the underside.

MSI uses what they call "MSI Steel armor" that re-enforces the PCI slot.

u/DarkHand · 1 pointr/nvidia

You could always just buy a GPU brace, like this one.

u/remembertosmilebot · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

u/NYMPHOPANDA · 1 pointr/buildapc

A few different companies make GPU supports in different styles. I like this one.

u/static74 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Many people have this bracket and this card, a review has a picture of what it looks like.

u/magn2o · 1 pointr/nvidia

Although I have nothing but good things to say about my Mnpctech GPU brace, I admit it can be pricey. There's a more affordable brace available on Amazon, the Atlas Graphics Card Brace.

I actually have both of these braces. The Atlas worked perfectly fine for me, but I preferred the fit and polish of the Mnpctech brace (plus it's aluminum, whereas the Atlas is plastic).

u/aBoatfromKhuul · 1 pointr/buildapc

Something like this may help a lot.

u/Dr3amCast · 1 pointr/nvidia

I haven't had much experience with cards of this size. It's definitely the largest heatsink I've owned as well. I mean, it's got GIRTH. I didn't notice sag, per say, but the way I run my 8 pin connectors from the back of my case it pulls a little downward and the card was more than happy to oblige. I haven't done anything about it yet, but more than likely I will. I can link you to some options I was looking at:

I was originally looking at one of these 2:

But I read there that this brace can interfere with your fans depending on how wide the card is. This card is a wide card, and I have 2 120mm side fans that this would disrupt airflow from

So I'm most likely going to go with this:

u/upstreamriver · 1 pointr/nvidia

Doesn't look too bad, but if you're not feeling comfortable you can take a look at some of the GPU holders available.


edit: spelling, added alternative for those with 2.5" slot cards

u/ImNateGibson · 1 pointr/nvidia

Nice build! If you're getting GPU sag, I saw someone post this brace a couple days ago, and it seems pretty nice.

u/Harenarius · 1 pointr/buildapc

I bought something like this.

I just cut and added a piece of sticky rubber feet to close the space between so there won't be any sagging at all.

u/Chrizerker · 1 pointr/nvidia
u/AltForMyRealOpinion · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/PrimaryDetective · 1 pointr/buildapc

So I put a zotac amp extreme 1080ti into a h500 case and it sags pretty bad. I watched this video but it doesn't apply and this brace bar that is usually recommended doesn't seem to work for the size of gpu I have. Any recommendations beside fishing wire lol

u/-UserRemoved- · 1 pointr/buildapc

These already exist, and there are many

V1 Tech



Cooler Master

u/selphiron · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

yeah that could be a solution or you could try a gpu sag bracket thing

u/eqzitara12 · 1 pointr/nvidia

No offense dude, but how quickly did you just give up?


There are thousands of google images of "gpu brace" installed, just look at the pictures. Its not anymore complicated then installing a card. Goes into slot underneath and bumpers seperate it from card.


Look at customer images, there are pictures from literally all angles.

u/blayyzR24 · 1 pointr/PCBuilds

I was actually going to link you in my previous comment but since we have different cases im not too sure if the bracket support im using will be compatible with your case because of the small clearance it has between the GPU and the power supply housing. This is the one i use Maybe you could use it.


No worries though i found you this one that might be better for your build. I do highly recommend it. Your GPU is the most expensive part of your computer and you dont want its connectors to snap off from the back of the case or the motherboard.


Hope that helps. Feel free to ask anything else.

u/crushsyndrome · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

So I was looking at products like this:

but I really did not feel like spending $20 for a piece of plastic. So I looked around all the parts left over after building my PC and came up with this

Edit: Alternate placement:

u/Mammogram_Man · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

You can also get really really cheap holders that'll take care of GPU sag. Check em out.

This one works for SLI

This is really sturdy if you don't mind taking up a slot.

u/SupraRZ95 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I ordered this. I don't like it cause it's plastic + I gained 3° Celsius because it blocks my side window fan from fully blowing on it. My card never peaked 60° now it hits 64. First world problems, I know.

Edit: If i did more looking I would have ordered this instead.

u/Buttersgra · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace (what I have cuz mine is more of a gunmetal and it matched)

I have no idea which card you're using, but they cater to a lot of different styles.

This is another good one. Also notably less expensive than the previous offerings.

u/freakingwilly · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I've seen people use action figurines, legos, and even pencils wrapped in electrical tape (all products people usually have lying around, see more here). If you are looking for a professional solution, anti-sag brackets work really well too.

u/Kalsifur · 1 pointr/buildapc

You know you can buy supports for this purpose, price ranges from about $16-25. There are a bunch of different kinds, some look like a brace, some are "arm" tubes that adjust across the case width

u/BringontheDaemon · 1 pointr/sffpc

Hmmmmmm, so something like this?

u/KaineOrAmarov · 1 pointr/buildapc

There are products like a GPU brace, you can make your own (I personally use a carpenter's pencil cut to length), or use something like fishing line to hold the GPU up

u/Dylan_JZA · 1 pointr/buildapc

GPU viagra...

Jokes aside, they make these (buddy has one for his 1080ti):

u/Strikaaa · 1 pointr/pcmods

Get one of these (Mnpctech, Puget, Atlas, Bitspower or any kind of bolster),
put something below it
or attach a piece of string to your GPU and the top of your case.

Backplates can also reduce GPU sag (or rather bending) but those support brackets probably do a better job.

I could give it a shot anyways. I also just found this thing that doesn't look half bad as well.

I may try a small dowel first, to see how it looks. If it clashes with the build too much, at least it will have been really cheap to attempt, and I could always just go with something a bit more expensive like the brace that I linked above.

Riser isn't really the correct term, a riser is typically in a card or thin cable extension form. Usually for mounting GPU's vertically, like you mentioned.

What you might want is a brace (example). I think I've seen a vertical adjustable brace too. GPU sag really isn't an issue though, unless it bothers you aesthetically.

Also, you could always get white extension cables to hide that extra plug. UpHere is a great brand, I bought a black extension kit recently, they are really nice.
