Graphics Cards mounted upside down?

Cooler Master HAF XB takes care of GPU sag since the cards are sitting vertically.

the sag and upside down logo are both inconsequential

I usually just have little gnomes casting magic to make the graphics on my games looks amazing, and they have a little fan that blows on them facing to the left.


The intersection of science and magic spells doom, doom for us all!

Really, man? You just explained how the GPU mounts and why it looks like it's "upside down" and you're asking if a CASE is going to change that? Like what, mounting the whole mobo upside down, and to the opposite side, just sticking all your ports down there at the bottom?.

Why buy one of those cases, glue feet to the top of the one you have and just turn your whole rig upside down. That way the GPUs are rightside up.

To get a GPU to face upwards buy a BTX case. The main side door opens on the right side and not the normal left side like an ATX case. If the door is on the right side then the motherboard has to be mounted on the left side and therefore the GPU will have to be oriented upwards. My old Dell was like that and since the PCIe slot was the top slot I couldn't use a double slot card in it because there was no slot above the slot where the card fit in. Look it up.

Everything is normal just like how your PSU fan faces up from the bottom of the case amirite guise?

The Prodigy M and the Phenom M are 2 cases where the card faces upwards towards the top of the case.

Proud owner of a Phenom M here, can confirm. It's kind of weird at first but everything still runs cool despite the airflow going against the natural flow of heat so I'm happy.

On further research, turns out Graphics Card Sag (I'm gonna call this GCS for short) is quite a common thing especially with larger cards.

I've read some people use chopsticks to prop their cards up if they sag. Funny, eh? Learn something new everyday...


I tie a piece of fishing line to the corner of the card, every card i've bought has a tiny hole there, and tie the other end to a random part of my case. Keeps the card from sagging. I'm pretty sure the card would be fine in a year or two without doing this, but it was keeping me up at night, imagining the stress put on my poor motherboard.
